    Patterson is going to be a DAMN GOOD pf. In the near future, 13 and 7 will be a bad night for him.

    And yet, who gets sent to another team next year?

    One of the few things McHale will admit is that we need athletic bigs; our wings can handle the bulk of the scoring.

    Scola, Ppat, Dmo.

    I want to believe in the youngsters, would like to trade Scola (I like him, but...) It's just....we don't really overall match up well in the 4 department against other teams.

    Wishing Ppat well, but how will our 4-5 situation shake out?

    He needs to learn how to shoot 3's.

    The guy plays small.

    13 and 7 will be his ceiling.

    I agree, but it's the off-season. This is about as news-worthy news as you'll get this time of year.

    You may call it excuses and there certainly were other factors to Patterson struggles, but if he can reach the level most of us thought he might reach this past year, that's one step in the right direction and probably all you can hope for at this point.

    Disagree. He needs to learn how to go up strong and finish with contact.

    I wish PPat would set loftier goals.

    Should be something like 34 mpg, 16/10/1.5 on 50% from the field and 80% from the line.

    He was injured, though, so he was just an a,,et.

    I almost feel bad for wanting to trade him.

    We don't have a long way to go to relevancy. Just need to plug up the holes on the team.

    A bad ankle is hard to recover from, and to play on. That being said...PPat, I love ya, I've stuck up for ya, but you played soft last year and were a disappointment.

    I hope that you come back focused on being The Beast that we've seen glimpses of, if not, I hope we can get some decent value on a trade.

    All due respect mate, if you don't produce then hit the road.

    Winning MIP is a curse. You really don't want to win it. But...can't fault the guy for wanting to improve. Keep up the hard work. Just don't destroy us when you get traded.

    Landry played shortly after he got shot.
