Ginobili got a standing ovation when he made his way to the bench late in the game against the Warriors, prompting his close mate Mills to ask “what are all these people standing up for?” “I don’t know why we do [have such a close relationship]. He’s so much older than me, it’s weird. It’s like grandpa and grandson but still very close,” Mills said. “We’ll see what he does but it’s been a great learning curve for me to grow under him. I’ve learnt so much from him on the court, and more importantly for me, off the court. “It’s one of those friendships that will go on for years beyond basketball. When it’s all said and done and when you hang the boots up that’s the thing you take away the most.
When Patty Mills saw Tony Parker at the Spurs’ practice facility on Thursday, Mills made sure to wish Parker a happy birthday and give him a little pep talk. Parker, who turned 35 on Wednesday, was hobbling around on crutches after sustaining a ruptured left quadriceps in Game 2 of the Spurs’ second-round series against Houston that required surgery. “I said happy birthday to him,” Mills said at Spurs’ practice Friday. “From what I was aware of, it was his first day of rehab yesterday. He would like to be better off, and out on the court, but I think he’s trying to take care of his knee at the moment and doing what’s best for him.”
