Patty Mills Makes Memories With Fans

By sarahhecht Posted in: PattyMills
Patty Mills has incredibly devoted fans.

The Mills following has grown into a phenomenon in the Rose City. There’s just something about a rambunctious and eternally-happy Aussie that brings a smile to your face. Oh, and did I mention yet that he takes his fans to concerts? I’m not talking a school choir concert, I’m talking floor seats to the Usher OMG tour.

Yeah, you read that right. Thursday afternoon Patty tweeted,  “Who’s lives in Portland and is free at 8 o’clock tonight?? Might have a good deal for someone who is interested. #hurryhurry.” That was quickly followed by his announcement that he was going to the Usher/Akon show and had three extra tickets for fans.

It didn’t take long for two lucky Twitter followers to nab the tickets and the opportunity to spend the evening dancing and singing with Patty.

Now the best part of this story isn’t the ticket giveaway or the simple fact that Patty decided to give them to fans. It’s the story of the girls who rocked out for a night with Pat Stacks himself.

Danielle and Pammi are two huge Trail Blazers fans, more specifically they’re huge Patty Mills fans. Oh, and they love Usher, does it get any better than that? On the verge of high school graduation Danielle leapt at the opportunity to attend a concert with her favorite Trail Blazer. Tweeting Patty with praises and excitement she flooded his Twitter timeline with responses that paid off in the ultimate evening for her and her older sister.

Filled with dancing, singing, picture taking and hugging Patty, Danielle and Pammi made memories that will last a lifetime. With graduation soon too come, this memory-filled time in life got even sweeter.

Graduate from high school, check. Attend very first concert, check. Rock out with Patty Mills at said concert, double check.

I’m making a guess here, but I think the memory of jamming with Patty will make the highlight reels for Danielle and Pammi. Then again, it’s just a guess.

You can follow Patty on Twitter at @Patty_Mills.


  1. I can almost see Kassandra McIntosh in that picture, Too bad she is away at college, I am sure she would have been first in line to tweet. A greater Blazer fan you will not find, a Patty fan she is, but is a fan of all the team members.

    It is admirable that Patty did this, what a class act. Of course I would not want to be the recipient, but I could have danced and hugged on his girls LOL.

  3. lmao Hg! yes, i would have been at the front of that line. i'm not even a big fan of Usher or Akon, but Patty ... it's well known around here that i am a HUGE Patty Mills fan!

    i, too, admire Patty for doing that. Danielle and Pammi are extremely lucky! it's just the latest example of him using social media to connect with fans. i very much hope he is on the roster next season.

  5. I think it all comes from Patty's attitude. When he was signed the day before the season, it appeared he was just happy to be on the roster, but we saw him get an opportunity and earn his minutes. He seems to be a positive person. Fans like him because he's they type of person they want to be around.
