As one film blog put it… It’s a question that’s haunted Star Wars fans for almost four decades now: why the hell doesn’t Chewbacca get a medal at the end of A New Hope? Luke gets one, and Han gets one, but Chewie, despite having been present for just as much of the action, gets overlooked. Did the medal store run out? Does Chewie have a principled stance against trophy culture? Is Leia secretly an anti-Wookiee racist? Well, Brook Lopez and his brother Robin have rectified this injustice at DisneyLand (where else unless it’s one of the various other Disney lands and worlds the brothers inhabit in the off-season). They met up with Peter Mayhew, a fellow seven-footer who played Chewie across the galaxies and decades, and presented him (and themselves of course) with said medal. Then Robin tweeted it out.

Culture gets thrown around a lot in sports, but what does it really mean? What does it mean for the Nets? “Everyone in here together working towards the goal,” Lopez said. “No more being late, be on time in the training room getting your treatment, getting your weights in; be on the court at the same time. It’s a much more togetherness, much more camaraderie. We hold each other accountable and we have high expectations of each other.”
Storyline: Nets Front Office
The 7-foot, 28-year-old center calls the training staff “an international work force” with “guys taking what they’ve learned all around the world, bringing it together in this eclectic fashion so we really have the best of the best. “It’s hard,” Lopez said. “We’re together and we’re doing it. Before, we’d have guys coming in, wouldn’t really get their treatment [or] their mobilization. And they weren’t necessarily on time. It’s the way it should be now.”
Foye said he’s arriving “with no ego” and doesn’t care if he’s starting with the Nets, but there are possibilities with this roster. After Jeremy Lin at point guard and Brook Lopez at center, it’s tough to discern where this lineup is headed, even if Bojan Bogdanovic and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are given the inside track for the starting wing positions.
