PLUS THREE FROM PATRICK

What Noon Ballers had a chance to hear from Bill McKee:

•"I was open,'' a teammate would say; "There's a reason you were open,'' McKee would respond.

•McKee, after making an outlandish 28-footer, would say wide-eyed: "Did that go in?''

•McKee to his teammates:"It's time to get back to the Formula.'' The Formula? McKee shoots.
