While speaking about signing with the Dallas Mavericks and his “fresh start”, 8-year NBA veteran, Monta Ellis, expressed his discontent with his situation in Milwaukee, saying that his unhappiness even affected his shooting percentages.
According to Jeff Caplan, NBA.com:
…. And happiness is something Ellis says he’s been missing the last couple years and, he says, it’s shown in his sliding shooting percentages.
“When you’re in a place where you’re unhappy, it’s very hard for you to perform to your best ability,” said Ellis, the American Airlines Center lights twinkling off the oversized diamond studs in each ear. “So, I mean, with this new beginning, new fresh start, you know, better organization, you know, better teammates, they’re going to make things a lot more better.”
