    Because I am having a hard time telling them apart.

    A 15 foot jump shooting soft as a cloud "PF" with suspect defense. Who can not REBOUND.

    IS HE? OR IS HE?

    You're being generous to Maurice Taylor, who average 4.3 rebounds per contest in 25 minutes per game over the course of his career.

    Patterson is at 5.3 per 25 minutes at this stage of his career.


    So he's a 25% better rebounder than Mo Taylor. Let's not make people think more favourably of Mo's rebounding ability than they ought to! In comparison Patterson is a rebounding machine.

    I think he is trade bait. I mean he is close to his ceiling.

    I think Patterson's "Great D" is a myth. Every time I look up he is getting torched or getting beat for a rebound. Why is he so afraid to dribble the ball?

    Mo was a turnstyle on defense. Everybody used to go by him with no effort. Patt for his lack of rebounding is a very good post defender.

    He is without a doubt the new Maurice Taylor.

    He has a BHE and SAC from the Taylor school of offense and defense.

    BHE = Black Hole Extraordinaire
    SAC = Soft As Charmin

    We need to tank, draft shabazz or some other consensus pick and then trade him to POR for LMA.

    LIN
    HARDEN
    LMA

    lets rookies develop for next 2-3 year and then sign a few veterans.

    Championship team

    I don't think the Rockets will lose enough games to get Shabazz, not after trading for Harden. It's still possible, but not as likely.

    No man, Mo Taylor had some serious skills. He was like a weed man's Chris Webber.

    Truth is what your seeing is the result of players not playing or improving their strenghts. Instead of Pat becoming a more physical pressence inside he has moved further away from the basket. He allows smaller players to box him out wich is simply bad fundamentals and lack of coaching. I assume intead of rebounding drill this staff prefers Pat shoot 3's during practice.

    His post moves consist of pump fakes and up an unders. Even when he has a clear lane he chooses to flick the ball at the rim. This is either due to bad coaching or Pat trying to become something he's not. If a strech 4 is what we want I'm sure fry will be available when he get's better
