The primary argument against Ellis is his 26.1 points per game are only possible by a large volume of attempted shots and minutes. This argument funnels into the next argument that Ellis plays on a losing team, hence his gaudy stats are in vein. Ellis leads the NBA in minutes per game with 42, leading some to interpret his 26 ppg as less efficient than Brandon Roy's 23 ppg in 38 minutes per game.
I don't buy into knocks on the efficiency of Monta Ellis, sure he isn't as efficient as he was two years ago in a more limited role. I think the extra load Monta has taken on his back this season should reflect positively toward his All-Star campaign. The fact that he leads the league in minutes and scores 26 ppg is a testament to his stamina.
I concede Monta is not quite at the level of Chris Paul or Deron Williams (as these two are on-the-ball players, while Ellis likes to play off). At this point, Ellis is most comparable to Brandon Roy in statistics. Don't ask me who I'd rather have on my team, just look at the numbers.
Brandon Roy: 23 ppg, 5 apg, 4.6 rpg, 48 FG%, 38 mpg
Monta Ellis: 26.1 ppg, 5.5 apg, 4.2 rpg, 46 FG%, 42 mpg

So here are the un-biased, view on how I think each conference's 15-man roster will break down:
PG: Steve Nash (Barely edges out Paul, but he's played more this year)
SG: Kobe Bryant (Pretty much a shoe in for this spot until......" -
