Default Why did Patterson go to LA anyway?

Guy hasn't been on an LA team for quite a long time. So why did he go to LA? He knows Kobe is still in LA, and I am pretty sure Kobe and Patterson don't get along.


While they're not on the same team, I heard that Patterson used to bully Kobe alot.



And its funny when Kobe has 24, but Patterson has 23. Both have been part of a rape case and both part of Portland vs Lakers rivalry.

Patterson, has also been given the name "Kobe Stopper".


I think Patterson has a man crush on Kobe Bryant.

LA was the only team that offered Ruben a contract, and he was happy to be offered a one year minimum salary deal from anyone. That's why.

good player but Denver couldnt wait to boot him out, and the Bucks showed him the door as well.

does that tell you anything? ....almost sounds like Boykins too

Everything I've read and heard suggest Kobe and Ruben are actually good friends.

just guessing here....never have talked to patterson personally, but i dont think that Kobe, laying for another team in the same town had ANYTHING to do with the signing.

by the way he wasnt given the name "the kobe stopper" he gave it to himself. which i think is really funy

Ruben did really well with milwaukee. I don't understand why they just let him go for nothing. With EB out, he might take a good amount of playing time at PF for the Clippers. The Clippers can use his toughness.

yup. He's the self proclaimed Kobe stopper. Whats funny is that Kobe would destroy him almost every time.
