    Patterson's the perfect fit in a three big rotation with JV and Amir. Have loved what the bigs have been providing lately. Much prefer that three big rotation to having to watch Hayes or Hansbrough except for foul trouble situations.
    Agreed. Patterson's ascendance has pretty much made Hansbrough redundant.

    Personally, I don't think a backup centre is that big a need, with Amir being able to play both the 4 and 5.

    +1. I love the effort and didn't realize he has a good perimeter shot. I love how he hedges on high screens, really positions well on D and passes well for a big man. A definite keeper.

    i like the different looks the 2 4s give you. the center is a player like gray, to go up against the giants like hibbert etc

    I don't think it's necessarily an ascendance, but rather the play we have seen over the past couple games has been a show of consistency. He showed flashes like this during his time in Houston; I remember even having him on my fantasy team for a couple of weeks, he was doing so good. If he can show that he can bring something like this every game, then I'm very happy with keeping him.

    I agree with the Hansbrough point. Somewhat valuable trade asset right now.

    Patterson is a very San Antonio-type player. Can play well within a system and doesn't give up anything on offence or defence. Really contributes to team success without putting up gaudy numbers.

    We can all agree that 2Pat is better than Ed Davis right?

    Why you gotta start that? Things have been so quiet on that front.

    looks like it is what you prefer. davis has slightly better defensive stats and 2pat has better offensive stats. i would argue that 2pat fits our team make-up more than davis, especially in combo with tyler.

    if davis isn't sent out for gay does masai sign tyler? is our rotation bigV, amir with davis off the bench and gray for matchups with quincy getting sporadic time?

    i would prefer the current set-up with two viable first bigs off the bench but would also like a huge body to replace hayes to give out fouls for less than 6 million
