    NBA ready body, 7-1 wingspan, mentally tough (ex military dad), I like.

    What I really like is that he decided not to enter the draft his sophomore year and stayed to improve his game. You can't teach that. Players who have a strong work self starting work ethic and are constantly try to add on to their game each year become very solid or special.

    As much as I like him, this guy has a better frame and I hope he can work as hard as Landry did.

    Well... I think it is safe to say that Patterson is no Dorsey! ;)

    That is a bad thing though. With his length and height, I think he can be more.

    I bet he makes a lot of noise if he can get the minutes.

    I dunno. Morey keeps saying that Patterson was ranked 6th on their draft board. If that is the case, he either got real lazy and didn't do a lot of scouting or he got one F'd up draft board. I really like Patterson as a player but he was not the 6th best player in the draft.

    Who was your top 6 ranking? Just curious. Don't tell me you had Ekpe Udoh as 6th.

    PP reminds me of Amare Stoudamire, in appearance, demeanor, and style of play.

    Patterson is going to make a quick impact on this team -- I can't wait to see him play against NBA talent next season.

    Now not get me wrong I like the Patterson pick, but if Cole Alrich was still on the board and we passed him up for Patterson, then not so much.

    That's a stupid comparison. Kenny was never a lottery pick by the Rockets and his ceiling was never as high as Patrick's.

    Please don't post anymore.

    Stop sounding like a damn Homer. The fact is that Amare won the Rookie of the Year Awards. The odds that PP wins this award are astronomical.
