Nate McMillan Biography
Nate McMillan was born August 3, 1964 in Raleigh, North Carolina and is a retired professional basketball player and current head coach of the NBA's 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.
McMillan was drafted by the Sonics with the 30th pick in the 1986 draft. He would spend his entire NBA career in Seattle. During his 12-year playing 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. McMillan was also known for his balanced play, which led to four career triple-doubles. Known as Mr. Sonic for his 19 years of service to the team, his #10 jersey was retired by the Sonics. He was also known to be one third of the Big Mac team of Seattle SuperSonics of the late 80's and early 90's, the others being Xavier McDaniel and Derrick McKey.
After 19 years with the Seattle organization, McMillan left Seattle on July 7, 2005 to become the head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers. He took over a team riddled with cap problems and off-the-court drama, but has steadily calmed the waters in Portland.
McMillan was an assistant coach under Mike Krzyzewski for the US national team in the 2006 FIBA World Championship, winning a bronze medal. He is also a member of the National Junior College Basketball Hall of Fame, due to his All-American performance at Chowan.
