Monta Ellis to Warriors Staffer: ‘Hey Sexy’

Ellis allegedly texted Smith "several times in a single day, late at night or in the early morning hours," using a "secret" telephone that was kept by an equipment manager with the team, the suit claims. The texts from Ellis included phrases like "I want to be with you," and "Hey Sexy," to which Smith responded with, "What do you want?" and "I am sleeping," the suit alleges.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Some people never learn. Ever.

Sadly, it appears Monta Ellis, the talented combo guard for the Golden State Warriors, is one of those people.

First, there was moped-gate. Ellis injured himself riding an electrical device my ten year old nephew calls lame and lied about it as rolling on a moped is a violation of his contract.

Second, Ellis asked several times for a trade. Some of his requests were private; some of his requests were public, bringing controversy to The Bay.

Third, Ellis welcomed blue-chip prospect Stephen Curry to his first pro training camp by declaring the two couldn’t start in the same backcourt.

To be fair: Ellis and Curry have made amends.

And finally there’s this: Ellis, allegedly, acted like a Delta Bravo (that’s a polite way of calling him something that rhymes with Fouche Bag) to a team employee.

Worst of all, the Warriors, allegedly, covered for his Delta Bravo/Fouche Baggery. They fired the employee and this could get awfully messy, as there’s a smoking gun that shows Ellis’ sexual harassment.

The Warriors have a new owner, Joe Lacob, and rookie coach, Mark Jackson, who are both trying to change the dysfunction and incompetence that has plagued the organization.

This won’t help. Unfortunately, there will be no trade market for Ellis with such a controversy hanging over his head.

So Lacob and Jackson have one choice: they must stick by Ellis and hope he finally learns.
