    I vote for Patty Mills to be the next Prime Minister of Australia. Keep up the good work mate all of Australia are watching you and are supporting you. Look forward to seeing you play Feb 2nd v Nuggets. Im flying in with a mate to watch the game. Guys let me tell you a little about patty he is one of the most down to earth guys in basketball. I watched patty play for australia v argentina earlier this year and after the game he stayed on court and signed hundreds of autographs and had his photo taken with nearly everyone in the building.

    Well I guess you didn't study world history when you went to High School or College. Wait I bet you live a shelted life and cant see outside of America, its people like you who give americans a bad name. Patty Mills is from aboriginal descent and aboriginals where the first people in australia thousand of years before the so called convicts came to Australia. You should read up on it you may even learn something, dreamtime is amazing stuff and has got some fantastic stories about life, which I must say you might not know much about the real world.

    Downunder Dreams, please accept my apologies for the gross generalization and ignorant comment made by TayC. I agree, uneducated people like him give us Americans a bad name because they think they know it all and they aren't afraid of boasting their ignorance. To be fair it is not his fault completely. Our educational system is very poor and even trains us to believe we are critical thinkers when in fact we are trained what and how to think. Anyway, I come from the same educational system, but I realized long ago something was not right and made an effort to question what I was learning and to seek out things on my own. So my point is not ALL Americans are like him.

    Also thanks for the info on Patty, I love to study history and I was actually curious if he was a true native or if his parents/grandparents immigrated. He really seems like a down to earth kinda guy. You can't dress up like Pat Stacks and then go running around downtown Portland doing random interviews if you're not!

    Okay, says the person who just made every major judgement towards a person that one could make in a single conversation.
    I do believe that you just completely made a mistake by trying to insult me from something that is in its entity, true.

    So let your ego leave the room while you read this because it might not be able to take this, seeing as how rude you are.

    I did not mean anything negative by that comment. I actually have been to school and idk if you know, but unless you are studying a history class at a college level one really wouldnt learn that much about the Outback from a standard curriculum.
    Watch out now!.
    Everyone by the name "down under blunder" would know that , yes, Australia had aborigines that were the major population for about 40 thousand years, untill late in the 18th century when the prsion population of england and some of its other British colonies became overwhelming. Prisoners were then transferred from their home behind bars to this new vast island.
    They were put to work in various methods, and at first Fishing was a boom. England actually began to create several major fishing organizations down there untill they could establish a trade route back home. Which they did, and things proved to be well, untill around 1850 when there "goldrush" this forced the established colony to break down due to civil unrest and bureaucratic laws that restricted miners from mining this gold for themselves.
    All heck seemed to break loose, and the colony fell to pieces and separated untill it was to be established that each individual county become responsible for themselves, and they did so continuing to govern themselves untill 1900 when  after years of planning and much speculation, they rejoined and formed the commonwealth of Australia, still a dominion of the british empire.
    Anyone with hair on their chin knows what happened from then on out, WW1 came into play and AUS forces were joined with british in certain battles around the globe, austrailian forces played even bigger roles in WW2 fighting against the Japanese and going through some of the toughest warfare the war had to offer.

    So idk if you got the message there, but those aborigines were on that island for 40,000 years, and nothing happened, in only 200 years after being discovered by the dutch, the british had revolutionized the continent. SO in actuality, those convicts are more responsible for anything AUS has to offer to the world, maybe minus its historic culture.
    And just to set you straight, the real pun intended was that " Its funny how Australia was founded by convicts" was that convicts are generally not nice people, and when you look at what Australia has become today it is almost a vacation spot for the world, it has so many fun activities to offer and alot of it is just great.

    So the next time you want to flex your sack, make sure that the dog wont BITE BACK.
    Goodnight and goodluck, with your ignorance, im sure you will need it.


    PS: Lapdog tom, remember this next time you whine on the web about people following you around. urDumb! :D

    Also gotta love the way Tay just googled that info to prove that he already knew it. The problem isn't that you didn't know it, which you clearly didn't, it's that you open your mouth and say stupid things like you learned your history from the movies and MTV. Then when you offend someone and they come back at you all you do is resort to calling them rude or mean and going off on some irrelevant pseudo intellectual rant instead of admitting that you were wrong.

    Over  200 years ago England was over crowded and financially in ruins.  The British government at the time decided to solve the cost of housing criminals in jails, many for minor offences, ie, a mother or father stealing a loaf of bread to feed their starving children, would find themselves being shipped off to the penal colony of Australia across the globe to do hard labour, most often never seeing their family again and more likely dieing whilst a convict - for stealing a loaf of bread!

        The irony here Tayc  is that the decendants of these convicts, (us Aussies) now live in one of the most liveable countries in the world with warm weather, white sandy beaches, great beer, whilst the British have cold misserable weather, warm beer and now the British pay lots of money to come to Australia for their holidays.

        The convicts would be laughing in their graves on that one; having convict blood is no more of a slur than it is now a badge of honour, for hardwork, survival and mateship.

        I'd say lock this thread down before it heads way off course from a basketballing topic and becomes an America vs Australia offensive slanging match.

    I don't think they should lock the thread because one ignorant person wanted to rain on someone being stoked about Patty. Tay is nothing but a troll. I have learned that the hard way. And there is no way this will turn into an America vs Australia thread.

    Now back to Patty. I have missed the majority of the last few games so I only saw Patty for a split second, he seemed to be trying real hard on defense. I think the team needs to make some changes and I hope that means getting Mills more minutes, at least to let him grow. We are not winning the championship anytime soon, especially this year, why not start to develop these younger guys?

    Hi TomL & Kingfisher you guys could both be Aussie's, you remind me both of what happened in the first world war when aussies who didnt know each other struck up a frienship and built a strong rapour that will forever be written in the pages of history. THANK YOU "MATES". I'm not to worried about TAYC or his comments anyway can cut and paste from the internet. Tayc made two good points. 1.  Its funny how Australia was founded by convicts" was that convicts are generally not nice people, and when you look at what Australia has become today it is almost a vacation spot for the world, it has so many fun activities to offer and alot of it is just great.

    2. I did not mean anything negative by that comment.

    So I leave it at that I but I dont lose sleep over embersole's like TAYC I think he is still on mothers milk.

    Now back to the most important part PATTY MILL'S give him some time and he will be a very good backup pg, TomL i couldn't agree with you anymore regarding time and minutes. Once again TomL & Kingfisher I am proud to cal you my aussie mates.

    LOL Patty's a great guy full stop. Don't be dishing on other countries. TayC.. you didn't mean to be rude?? Then why did you say something so irrelevant to Patty Mills and Basketball. You could have said Patty is a great bloke and representing Australia proudly. Instead you said something you knew would offend people - and don't tell me you had no idea, because i can assure you every user on this site besides you knows that you said it to get under DownUnder Dreams skin. Funny.. huh?

    it seemed innocent enought seeing as how this thread was created regaurding Mills becoming the next prime minister, which i would say has nothing to do with basketball.
    If your pride is that shattered from an innocent comment like that, then sir i am sorry but life is way more cruel than the silly things you read on the internet, so good day to you sir and enjoy your fosters whilst i forget you even exist.

    Tom can you just please tell me how what you do is in any sense different from what i do.
    I mean i know sometimes i can make a post that may only have one word, but seriously your post are always rude ( IDGAF what "tone" you think your using) and or attacking some one else.
    You immediately discredit the person in the first sentence in most of your responses, and most of the time your fighting with one person and you just go back and fourth.
    Like half of all your posts ARE ABOUT ME! Think about that, like i am almost the best thing that has happened to your life because all you do is talk about me, you seem to spend alot of time thinking deep about my character and my personality, and yet you continuously mock me wherever i may be on this website.

    Like that is the epitome of what you are trying to make me out to be , a "troll" and yet you are the one who makes posts, about MY POSTS.
    Like is there not enough happening in the NBA this year, where are you getting all this spare time that you spend on me?
    Like stop, its not funny, and it is pathetically pointless, i mean i have no problem with you making a fool out of yourself, not to mention you have already earned the title of biggest hypocrite ever, but like you are the sinking ship bro.
    And you need to go down peacefully.
    So again, try to stop.please.


    But yah B- Lazer and Aussie Friends i didnt mean nothing by that and i would appreciate it if you not immediately start to bombard someone after they say something, it really gives a bad impression on your part.

    Wow Tay. You really just read my comment in the other thread and decided it would be a sign of intelligence to paraphrase it and other comments and use it against me?

    Plus it doesn't look like you are gonna forget that he exists if you keep coming back into this thread.
