Warriors owner Joe Lacob’s fiancee upset with him over Monta Ellis trade

Joe Lacob might have to sleep on the couch for a while. And it’s all because the Warriors owner let his team trade its best and most popular player.

When the team sent Monta Ellis to the Bucks this week, reaction from the Warriors faithful was decidedly mixed, and Lacob’s own fiancee was one of those who derided the move.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

“My fiancee is mad at me,” co-owner Lacob said, hanging out in the hallway off the court before Wednesday night’s game. “She hasn’t talked to me in two days.”

Is he kidding?

“There she is,” Lacob said. “Ask her.”

His fiancee brushed past without answering. She looked unhappy.

Lacob’s fiancee had formed a friendship with Ellis’ wife. When you trade a guy, you break some hearts.

Well, at least it wasn’t because Kwame Brown was traded. That would have been a deal-breaker, Lacob.
