Encyclopedia > Nate McMillan

Nathaniel "Nate" McMillan (born August 3, 1964 in Raleigh, North Carolina) is a former professional basketball player and current head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers. Prior to his coaching stint with the Blazers, McMillan was head coach of the Seattle SuperSonics for five years, after succeeding Paul Westphal in 2000. Between 1998 and 2000 he served as an assistant coach for the team. McMillan spent twelve years playing for the Sonics, from 1986 to 1998. He attended Raleigh's Enloe High School , where he went unnoticed by major college scouts. After a brief but great basketball career at Chowan College in Murfreesboro, North Carolina, he returned to Raleigh to play for Jim Valvano at North Carolina State University, before being drafted by the Sonics. August 3 is the 215th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (216th in leap years), with 150 days remaining. ... 1964 (MCMLXIV) was a leap year starting on Wednesday (the link is to a full 1964 calendar). ...

After 19 years with the Seattle organization, McMillan left Seattle on July 7, 2005 to become the head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers. July 7 is the 188th day of the year (189th in leap years) in the Gregorian Calendar, with 177 days remaining. ... 2005 (MMV) was a common year starting on Saturday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


During his 12 year player career, McMillan put up career averages of 5.9 points, 6.1 assists and 1.9 steals. He still shares (with Ernie DiGregorio) the NBA rookie record for assists in a single game with 25. McMillan was known for his superb defense, leading the NBA in steals per game for the 1993-94 season and being named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team for the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons. Known as "Mr. Sonic" for his 19 years of service to the team, his #10 jersey was retired by the Sonics. Ernie DiGregorio (born January 15, 1951 in North Providence, Rhode Island) is a former NBA basketball player. ...


Prior to the 2004-05 season in which the Sonics posted a 52-30 record, the Sonics considered firing McMillan for poor performance. The 2004-05 NBA season was the 59th season of the National Basketball Association (NBA). ...


McMillan's abrupt departure from Seattle has caused much discomfort among fans of the team; many who view it as an act of betrayal (especially since McMillan is now working for the rival Trail Blazers). Some Sonic fans feel he should be stripped of the "Mr. Sonic" title after supposedly "abandoning" their franchise for more money. Nate claims that he did not accept the Blazer's offer because of the money but because he liked the situation and opportunity. Nate was great, and should be considered as one of the most underrated coaches and players.
