DEADLY!

I like the comparison - I wonder if you could reverse Mills and Ford's college careers how their draft status would be affected.

I really HOPE that Bayless can get to the level of Devin Harris.

I'm curious if Mills will make the roster. He is not guaranteed since he was a 2nd round pick, and the broken foot makes it difficult for him to prove he is worth the roster spot. The only thing that may save him is the fact that we only have Blake and Bayless now at PG.

I think he will make it. I don't think the Blazers FO is *******s enough to cut somebody without letting them prove themselves. That is what they pride themselves on also...Nicolas Batum...Ime Udoka...Travis Outlaw.

I think they will keep Mills around for the year because they want to see what he can give, also because he played in the Olympics against the World's best talent and did well. We saw what Rudy could do in the NBA after doing well in the Olympics...maybe the same from Mills.

IMO...Mills = biggest steal of the draft in the past five years. In some mocks, they had him going late first round and Blazers get him late second.
