Grant High teammates Ronald and Donald Patterson are determined to silence their doubters. There have been many skeptics, including family members, who didn't believe the pair would succeed at basketball. " 'Oh, you guys are just like your dad, and you won't amount to anything,' " said Donald, mimicking his uncles and cousins. The Pattersons were not raised by their father but by their mother and the older boys at the basketball courts of Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks Park. Ronald, 17, is 6 feet 1.
