Patterson, though, feels the onus should be on the player — in this case Drummond — to learn to shoot free throws, not on the league to alter the rules to hide this shooting deficiency. “We’ve been working on this our entire lives, every aspect of the game and free throws are part of that,” Patterson said Saturday following practice. “From the time you initially pick up a basketball to the time you put one down, you are doing free throws. No matter if you are 7-foot and 300 pounds or a point guard, it’s an area of the game that anyone can work at and excel at. There are no excuses. No one person gets special treatment. At the end of the day either you can make free throws or you can’t, and there shouldn’t be some type of rule that can be your cape and cover you and protect you.”

Can you tell me about the raptor skull that you have in your apartment? Patterson: My interior designer, Jaclyn Genovese, she wanted to add some type of extra decor in my home. And I had brought up the idea of a raptor skull. And she put it, out of all places, on my coffee table. I had no idea how big it’d be. I had no idea what it’d look like. I had no idea. I come home this summer from California, from working out, I walk in and I look to my left right from the entryway and I see this big raptor skull right on my coffee table. I’m like, “Yo, that’s perfect. I love it. It’s perfect.”
So you weren’t even there, you just came home and you were staring at it. Patterson: I let her into my place to design everything, coordinate. And then I come home from California and I walk in and that’s the first thing I noticed was a big raptor skull on my coffee table. It’s not on a stand, it’s not on the fireplace, it’s not on my memorabilia wall or on shelving. It’s like right there on the coffee table.
