Gaming With Athletes: Patrick Patterson

Monday April 7th, 2014

This is the first installment of a new feature we're launching called "Gaming With Athletes" in which we face off against professional athletes online in the video game of their choice and record the conversation and footage.

On Thursday, we played against Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson in FIFA 14 on Xbox Live. Patterson starred for the University of Kentucky before making his way to the NBA and had plenty to say about the Wildcat's success, John Calipari and whether the Harrison twins are ready to make the jump to the league. He also discussed #patspicks, an ongoing social media campaign that showcases his personal taste in style, fashion, grooming, cuisine and more.

There is a condensed version of the interview above, and you can watch the full version below. The footage of the game was recorded using Aver Media's Live Gamer Portable.
