The beauty of playing basketball in the winter is that the game is played indoors and the harsh elements don't have an effect. Someone needs to tell Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson about that.

On Monday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, Patterson spent his time on the bench wearing massive gloves, the likes of which we've never seen on a basketball court before and have no explanation for. 

There was a reported low of 19 degrees in Philadelphia during Monday's game, but again…it was indoors.
