More Patterson Draft Speculation

I know it's something we all hate to think about, but we have to be realistic.

 

Here's what ESPN's Chad Ford has to say about Patterson:

"Patterson has an NBA body and athleticism, and lately his numbers at Kentucky attest to it. He had 31 points versus Lamar, 19 points and 16 rebounds versus Miami, and then 21 and 10 versus Mississippi Valley State. He's shooting a ridiculous 73 percent from the field and is showing some nice offensive versatility. Ideally, Patterson would be a few inches taller than 6-8, but his explosive leaping ability and his long wingspan make up for much of it. Scouts still have him ranked in the 20s, but he's the type of player who could really rise as we get closer to the draft."

No mention of that "regression" some people have been talking about.

 

Here's the whole thing:

UPDATE 12/16/2008 by Truzenzuzex:  John Clay just posted this blog about Patterson.  Seems some NBA scouts think highly of him.
