Kelley: Nate McMillan Reflects On Firing By Blazers

Steve Kelley of the Seattle Times with an excellent column on former Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan, who reflects on his firing and says he "definitely" wants to coach again. ----------------------------------- "I've never been fired. I've never been cut, and this is the first time that I have been without a team," McMillan said by telephone from Portland late last week. "I'm out of the NBA. I'm not in the NBA anymore. There's a lot of firsts in my life here with this firing." ... "You wake up in the morning now with not a lot to do," he said. "You think, 'Where do I go from here?' I've had even more sleepless nights now than I did during the season. My mind is just constantly going. I still think about the Blazers, the team. I've watched all of their games since my firing. I kind of feel like I'm still in it, but I know I'm not." ----------------------------------- McMillan uses the phrases "rebuilding" and "tough times" to describe the state of the team. McMillan took out a full-page advertisement in Sunday's edition of The Oregonian to thank various members of the Blazers and the team's fanbase. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter
