How long have you had it? I suffered from pattelar tendinitis for two years in high school, in both knees. Braces, ice, heat, ibuprofen, physical therapy, and rest seemed to do nothing for me in the long term. After high school, I probably didn't play serious ball for about 6-7 months, and even after that the games were few and far between. Now, I can play frequently with only slight soreness in my knees after the games and nowhere near the pain I used to experience during games.

I even considered cortisone shots during school for the pain, but I'm glad I let it heal naturally and didn't risk permanent damage from overuse.
