Just a gut impression, but I feel whatever chance the Charlotte Bobcats had of signing Stephen Curry narrowed Tuesday with this Golden State Warriors-Milwaukee Bucks trade.

Among the key players, guard Monta Ellis becomes a Buck and center Andrew Bogut becomes a Warrior. Curry is too classy to ever say this, but that's a switch that should make him very happy.

Back when former Davidson star Curry was a rookie, Ellis made the incredibly self-serving statement that Curry and he could never form a viable backcourt. He's right that they're too similar in size, but that's not the point; in an effort to strike out at the front office, he savaged a rookie who had done him no harm.
