Patty Mills Hits Salem for the ONG
Former Portland Trail Blazer and San Antonio Spurs guard Patty Mills joined the Bald Faced Truth Wednesday afternoon to talk about the upcoming Oregon National Guard Hoopla XV
event as well as the Spurs’ run at a title in 2013.
“Being part of a team with the caliber of guys that are on the team…I’ve definitely become a better player,” Mills said. “Just being around these guys, they are great players but they’re even better people to be around.”
Mills also told The BFT how excited he is to be learning from one of basketball’s greatest coaches in Gregg Poppovich and mentioned that he has an unforeseen soft side.
“He’s a sweetheart man, he really is. He comes off one way to the media…but he’s really a great guy.”
The Portland Trail Blazers drafted Mills with the 55th overall pick in 2009.
He has played two seasons with the San Antonio Spurs after signing in March of 2012.
