04:28 PM ET 04.24 | The backcourt in Milwaukee of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis isn't known to be quiet or lacking in confidence. Jennings' prediction that the Bucks would beat the top-seeded Miami Heat in six games raised eyebrows, but Ellis had been up to similar interviews where beaming with confidence might be confused with cockiness. In December, Ellis said he felt he was in the same stratosphere as Heat guard Dwyane Wade, but without the wins and titles. Wade laughed it off, adding that it was more of an honor to be the gold standard for shooting guards. "Monta is a talented, talented guard. But obviously I feel my game is a little bit different. I'm not just a scorer. I do everything on the floor; my whole career I've done it. That's where I separate myself from others."

He's not the only one. But I'm sure if you exchanged places, put Ellis in Miami with LeBron, Bosh and crew he would probably succeed as long as he understood that the are 4 other guys on the court that want to win as badly as he does. Gotta be smart with the ball. know the difference between a good shot and a bad one.
