He credits his ancestral ties with giving him the grounding to push for the top in the NBA, and for whatever comes next, off the court. “I have been instilled with culture from such a young age that I know who I am, and I know once sporting is out of the picture, I will have this to come back to and continue the customs and traditions that I’ve been taught,” Mills said. “That’s why it’s special to come back here and continue that. Now I’ve just refueled the culture tank for another year so I will be able to go and do what I do.”
The 28-year-old NBA star has re-signed with the Spurs for four years and $A65 million and this coming season the Spurs will be looking for an answer to the Warriors who won the NBA championship in convincing fashion led by superstars Steph Curry and Kevin Durant. “I don’t know mate – if I had the answer to them we probably would have beaten them this past season,” Mills said with a laugh. “They are an absolute powerhouse for the right reasons and they deserve the credit they have been getting so I will work on that answer and hopefully this time next year I will be able to tell you.”
Mills wanted to find a way to pass on the lessons of his upbringing and sporting career to younger readers so he has co-authored a series of children’s books with Jared Thomas called Game Day!, loosely based on his life story. The title comes from his famous twitter phrase “Game Day Bala”, which he sends out before every game using the Indigenous word for “brother”. “It’s kind of hard to give advice to kids so getting this opportunity to write a kids book, to display some messages, lessons and teachings was a good way,” Mills said.
