“I always wanted to know, who do you think Monta will play like 5 years from now: Gilbert, AI, Baron, or someone else?” — itsagreattimeout
I say a combination of Gilbert and Iverson, but leaning towards Iverson because he’s not physically overpowering like Gilbert. He’s got Gilbert’s explosiveness and Iverson’s knock for scoring. He doesn’t have AI’s handles — which is going to be his biggest hurdle — or Gilbert’s range. But he’s a better defender than both. He will be great at playing the passing lanes, like AI, and he’ll certainly have the moxie to come through in the clutch.
