Ellis steals show with his Energy

Monta Ellis impressed the veterans yesterday in training camp with his energy and hustle. He's showing that he belongs in the league and he's not just some high schooler.
Warriors rookie guard Monta Ellis stole the ball from Baron Davis and zipped up court on the break in Tuesday's second practice session.

With Derek Fisher standing in the way of his layup, Ellis twisted around the veteran in midair to avoid a charge. With Davis trying to block the shot from behind, Ellis switched the ball from his right hand to his left and laid it in.

"Young fella came to play," guard Jason Richardson said after Wednesday's first practice. "We were going at about 80 percent, he was going like 140 percent. He's like, 'I may be from high school, but I can play.'"

Nice first day of practice, it sounds like. Don't know anything about Monta, but that picture makes him look like this years Keith Jennings. Then I learned he's actually 6'2". Really, he looks like he's in grade school and he's pickin' Baron clean???? Very cool.
