Superstar to Bench Star

Rookie faces transition game: Warriors' Ellis goes from high school superstar to bench warmer

But if you were to stop by and find the Xbox or Playstation2 droning on at 2 a.m., don't expect to discover Ellis at the controls.

"I just don't feel like I have time for that," Ellis said.

Instead, Ellis is making time to fill in the blanks on his basketball rsum. While the rest of the Warriors' 17 players have an average of nearly seven professional or college seasons under their belt, Ellis' biggest stage to this point has been the 4-A Mississippi state championship game, which he won twice with his teammates at Jackson's Lanier High.
