Steven J. Patterson (June 24, 1948 – July 28, 2004), of Santa Maria, California, was an American professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association for five seasons. A 6'9"/2.06 m center from UCLA, Patterson spent his first year of athletic eligibility (1968-69, the third of the Bruins' unprecedented string of seven consecutive national titles) as the backup to Lew Alcindor, later Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. He then was the starting center for the Bruins' 1970 and 1971 championship teams.

Patterson was the UCLA center between Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton, and so was part of a string of seven straight NCAA championships the college won. Sidney Wicks and Curtis Rowe were the forwards on the star-studded team, and Patterson had his biggest game, 29 points, against Villanova in the 1971 NCAA Final.

Passing up a chance to play for the Phoenix Suns, who drafted him early in 1970, Patterson re-entered the draft. Patterson was the second rookie, after Austin Carr, selected by the expansion Cleveland Cavaliers. He was also drafted by the Texas Chaparrals of the American Basketball Association in the 1970 ABA Draft.
