Raptors Patman surprised by the raptors fanbase

The Official Site of Canada's Team | THE OFFICIAL BLOG OF THE TORONTO RAPTORS


Quote:
With respect flowing through the locker room and spilling over onto the court, the Raptors have built the type of chemistry that can occur only when every player is on the same page.

“We’re all for the team,” Patterson said. “We all buy into what the coaching staff tells us. Everyone understands their roles. No one wants to step outside their roles and their jobs. We’re all comfortable in our own skin and what’s going on here. We’re focusing on the bigger picture.

“Not a lot of guys on this team have been to the playoffs. Those guys who have been to the playoffs have talked to us and told us what it’s like and I think that’s motivation for the rest of us to continue doing what we have been doing.”

Quote:
Allowing himself to think ahead to experiencing the postseason in a city he is still getting familiar with, Patterson reflected on his first impression of Toronto after arriving post-trade.

“Canada, I figured, of course it’s hockey,” Patterson said. “I never would have imagined that the fans would pretty much sell out every game we play here. The first game I came here, I was shocked. It was packed and we were playing Philadelphia and fans were passionate through and through. They knew about basketball and they cared about the Raptors. They actually know the game of basketball. I was happy. I was stoked and excited.”

After seeing what Patterson can do for this Raptors team, and seeing how much they missed him while he was sidelined, Toronto faithful are excited to have him back on the court. Patterson has been touched by the reaction he has received through his rehabilitation process.

“Probably the most surprising thing I’ve seen here since I’ve been here, [is] the fan support,” Patterson said. “Throughout the course of this season the fan support has been so great,” Patterson said. “Everything has just been good.”

His mom is a huge supporter of the Raptors, too. She frequently gets involved on the Raptors Facebook link.

I even asked if she could convince Pat to re-sign this offseason. She told us that it's up to the GM, but they are hoping that Ujiri would want him back.

I hope so. If he sticks around longer, I might just make 2pat my first Raps jersey purchase in over 4 years if you include a Huskies jersey, or 10 years for plain old Raptors.

I'm just happy that Patterson is playing well and has enjoyed the fan support. Hope MU re-signs him.

I think MU would gladly re-sign him. The kicker is whether or not some team throws a crazy offer sheet at him, and matching would totally throw our cap status out of whack.
