“People talk about family across the NBA, their teams are like brothers, each player, they all get along. But I really think that we have the closest team in the NBA. […] On the road, team dinners, whether it’s Kyle putting something together, whether it’s DeMar, he putting something together, or TRoss holding something, it seems like whenever a teammate has something we’re all together. And everyone just loves each other, you know, whether it’s teammate wise or whether it’s family, kids, wives, mom and dad… We all look to each other as one big family and it’s probably the best that it’s been since I’ve been here.” -Patrick Patterson
John Patrick Lowrie: This is the song Ellen wrote and I arranged to offer to Valve as an Easter egg in Portal 2. It was never used, but when Jagger Gravening wrote an article about us in Vice Magazine, he had us record it. Ellen intended it as a song sung by GLaDOS to Chell, but I think it’s just turned into a big thank you to all our great fans. Hope you enjoy.
NPR did a bit on John Patrick Lowrie (Sniper, various DoTA 2 heroes) and Ellen McLain (The Administrator, GLaDOS, the Gypsy Danger A.I. in Pacific Rim, Broodmother and Death Prophet in DoTA 2), and how good characters, good writing, and putting thought into a role makes fans more involved in a game.
