    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!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.


    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    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...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
