Sports Briefs: $66 Million Moped Ride; UConn’s Brown Featured in Sports Illustrated

NBA guard Monta Ellis has placed his new 6-year, $66 million contract with the Golden State Warriors in jeopardy.  Ellis told the team that he injured his ankle earlier this summer during a pickup basketball game.  His injuries however, were inconsistent with typical basketball injuries.  And for good reason – Ellis was injured in a moped mishap.  Ellis’ riding of a moped is a violation of his contract and Golden State has the right to void the contract.  Such as drastic action is unlikely, however.  Ellis is more likely to be dealt a substantial fine.
