Patrick Mills article
A pretty good story - Mills's career blossoming as rapidly as his stature - about local lad, Patty Mills from Australia's worst paper, the Canberra Times.
A door closed gently behind Patrick Mills last night, and spread in front of him today is a world of new opportunities.
Mills, a 19-year-old Canberran, graduated from the Australian Institute of Sport basketball program last night, ending the first phase of what could be a rise to stardom.
Next week he will take on the biggest task of his career as part of the Australian Boomers team during its series against New Zealand. He'll also have to uproot himself from home to set up life as a player at St Mary's College in California.
