maybe not

I think he will be taken in the first, but there are two many decent points in this draft, Mills showed he can score, but wont be able to run a team, he will be a good second point guard.

i dont know how the scouts have graded him out out of the top 9 point guards and if he comes in last he might go in the second round?

Mills

I don't believe he smoked them by any means. I think he hell his own. From what I understand the players were more impressed with Rubio. International game is also way different then the NBA game. His body is small and he will have play stronger man defense. Thats saying I still think he is going to be somehwere between 18-28.

Olympics olympics olympics...

Dont get excited over point guards from the olympics...they never are great pros off of that. Look at the recent ones, Sun Yue and Carlos Arroyo. I do think that Patty could be a starter in the right system with a good coach thats looking for/need for a young pg (ie. the Lakers, or Mavs). He reminds me alot of Tony Parker

In my opinion, the Olympics

In my opinion, the Olympics are a totally different type of game than the NBA.

Olympics should not be used

Olympics should not be used for any type of scouting for the NBA. It isn't proven at all. Carlos Arroyo anyone?

Mills is similar to Courtney

Mills is similar to Courtney Lee in that he comes from a smaller, overlooked school. He is obviously smaller (more athletic) and can only play point guard, but is a scoring machine nevertheless.

But yea, I meant their similar because both came from overlooked schools and lack the name recognition. Lee was a late first rounder and I see Mills going early in the 2nd round and being quite valuable if he gets drafted by a good fitting team.

What everybody's said is

What everybody's said is right. The NBA is a completely different ball game to international basketball. The standout example is Sarunas Jasekevicius, a veteran Lithuanian PG who played for the Pacers and Warriors 05-07.. The dude is regarded as one of the best Euroleague players of all time winning every title you can think of.. in the Athens Olympics, he pulled the trigger on the US in the dying minutes to win the bronze medal. When he was signed to the pacers there was quite a large amount of hype about what he could achieve in the NBA. Unfortunately his stint was very uneventful and he quickly became a benchwarmer.

This isn't to say i think Patty will fail in the NBA. But don't judge him purely on what he did at the Olympics.

Jimmy Blaze, Glad to hear

Jimmy Blaze,

Glad to hear you know Sarunas Jasikevicius.... I'm of Lithuanian descent, so I am a die hard fan of Lithuanian players and their national team. I will remind you that Pathanakos won the Euroleague this year and Jasikevicius was a significant part of their team.

Anyhow, the European and American game is dramatically different. European is much more of a team game and better resembles college basketball. NBA is all about ISO to your star player... let him make plays.

Childress is barely an above average player in Greece... he averages about 8 pts and 4 rebounds a game. He is also the most paid player in Europe.

Jasikevicius has been a star in Europe... He won in Spain, then Israel and now Greece. It's a different game and players can't adopt. Smarter and fundamentally players would perform better in Europe whereas more athletic (and equally talented) players do better in the NBA.

Anthony Parker is a good example where an athletic guy dominated in Europe and plays very well for Toronto too.
