Living in northern California, I've had a lot of opportunities to watch Monta play. I always believed that Monta would have the greatest impact in a role that he would never accept - the 6th man off the bench. We all know what he brings - prolific scoring, ability to drive, and the occasional assist. These are all characteristics of what made Manu so deadly as a 6th man. If he can come to the Spurs accepting this role, it would really solve some of the issues we were having in the finals. The question is if he would set his ego aside to do so. My feelings are that he would be willing to swallow his pride coming into the first real winning environment of his career.
