Video: Spurs’ Patty Mills went to work to play

Last season, San Antonio Spurs’ Patty Mills was pretty much the cheerleader off the bench. Rarely would he play and most of the time he just be waving the towel from the sidelines, cheering on his teammates and hoping to one day get more minutes.

That was last season, this is now.

After losing weight, and honing his skills, Mills finds himself the backup point guard to Tony Parker and a vital cog off the Spurs’ bench.

In an interview with our friends over at News 4 SA, Mills spoke about last season as opposed to this season including how he doesn’t regret being a cheerleader last season to what he had to do in the offseason to get the tie on the court this season.
