    From The Columbian: Australia's Troubles Weigh In On Mills' Mind-
    The floods in Queensland, Australia have now claimed at least 13 lives and forced the evacuation of thousands of homes, leaving the point guard sullen despite recent accomplishments.

    “It’s hard, man. I have a lot of family in Brisbane. I know quite a few people who have been evacuated from their homes, people who didn’t even make it back to their homes to get whatever stuff they needed,” said Mills, who wore a Brisbane Broncos (rugby) jersey to Tuesday’s game in support of Australia.

    “You know, you’re back here in America, and for me living in Portland, it’s usually raining here. In that sense, it’s hard — being from Australia but having to be away when you have a close connection to it.”


    Horrible news. I don't even know how I would be able to work knowing I had family in trouble all the way across the world. I don't know how Patty does it, but I hope everyone in Australia is doing alright in the aftermath of all of the flooding and also that Patty can put his mind at ease for a little bit.

    Um, "sullen"? Patty?
    Sad, maybe. Worried, preoccupied, perhaps even brooding. But sullen?
    I am a fan of really, really, really fun basketball!

    Paul Allen said how do we get better?  I see no activity in the draft with no draft picks.  The trade possibilities are limited because of the value of our bench players.  We have no cap space.  So I think the improvement of our b...

    First Game starts tonight. Houston is a tough first round opponent and they play exceptionally well at home. If we can steal a game or two at their place, I feel like we have extremely good chances. 

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
