Bulls guard Derrick Rose says that Monta Ellis reminds him of a bigger version of Allen Iverson.
"Allen Iverson was a little smaller," Rose said, "but Monta definitely reminds you of him. (Ellis) gets up a little higher, but they've got a lot of the same moves. They're real clever with the ball even though you know which direction they're going."
Ellis and Iverson will do battle on Monday night when the Warriors visit the 76ers in Philadelphia.
"I don't think he's the next AI," Iverson said. "I think he's the first Monta Ellis. He can do so many things I can't do: as far as the way he jumps. He's super fast, real aggressive. He can do a lot of things on the basketball court and he's young, he's only going to get better."
