HoopsHype Patrick Mills rumors

January 20, 2015 Updates

Mills drew comparisons between Martin Luther King and Eddie Mabo — not the first time he has discussed the Australian indigenous leader among his San Antonio Spurs teammates. Mabo was a Torres Strait Islander who fought a long battle for recognition of land rights for indigenous Australians. “The other part of it is my strong belief in Martin Luther King Jr is also the same as Eddie Mabo,” Mills said. “Those two guys are very close together. They both share the same message around the world, here and in Australia.” FOXSports.com

Patty Mills did not enter the AT&T Center riding on a white horse Sunday. He didn't don a superhero's cape and come swooping in to save the day. Fresh off the injured list after missing the Spurs' first 31 games recovering from offseason shoulder surgery, the backup guard was not a one-man cavalry, storming to the rescue in a much-needed 110-106 victory over Houston. After one fourth-quarter play in particular, however, Tiago Splitter wasn't so sure Mills didn't at least save something. "He really saved my ass," Splitter said. San Antonio Express-News

Mills had surgery in early July to repair a torn right rotator cuff, after which doctors projected a mid-January return to action. Cleared to begin full contact, five-on-five practice, he now thinks he might be able to play in one of the four remaining games this month. “Mid-January had been (projected) all the way through,” Mills said, “but as I’ve progressed it’s end of December now.” San Antonio Express-News

Manu Ginobili, Boris Diaw and Patty Mills are among 16 nominees up for Hoops Hype’s 2014 Tweeter of the Year. Ginobili currently sits in second, about 2,000 votes behind Philadelphia rookie Joel Embiid. Diaw and Mills are in fifth and sixth, respectively. All three are obviously active on the popular social media site, particularly Ginobili. He won the award last year, posting everything from math riddles for local high school students to win Spurs tickets to candid pictures of his young sons. San Antonio Express-News

Dan McCarney: Mills still expected out until January, but Green and Ginobili both remarked how good he looks doing at least conditioning work. Ginobili impressed he's doing such hard work so far from return. Asked if that wasn't just excuse for shirtless photos on Instagram: "I sort of do. (But) I've been accused of trolling him. I just want to be nice. He's a good kid, he's working hard and that's my script." Twitter @danmccarneysaen
