As LeBron James retold the tale of his hook shot that beat the Brooklyn Nets Saturday night, he remembered poor Brook Lopez. Lopez, the Nets’ 7-footer and leading scorer in the game, was the defender rendered helpless by James’ Magic Johnson impression. James floated his running, baby hook with 1.9 seconds left over Johnson that forged a 90-88 victory for the Cavs. “Brook, he did not think in his wildest years that I was gonna shoot that one,” James said.
“Robin is the exaggerated version of me. He’s more of a cartoon character. He’s known for his mascot beatings, too,” says Brook of his brother’s notable WWE-esque feuds with NBA mascots. Robin’s spree started in 2013 when he jokingly brawled with Detroit’s equine mascot Hooper after the horse donned a look-alike wig and, since then, he’s been involved in numerous other playful attacks, leading to demonstrations faux-protesting his “violence.”
Makhtar N’Diaye: The other players, we could expect they would move in view of their relationships with Arn. But we stay united and we will keep fighting. We’re no longer the agency leaders but I think that we have to move forward. It makes us more motivated and we want to show our strengths. We have many good agents : BJ signed Derrick Rose’s contract. Thad Foucher signed Anthony Davis’ contract. Lopez Bros, it’s Darren Matsubara. Kelly Olynyk, it’s Greg Lawrence. We have to take this challenge. Our agency is fine.
The Sonics landed the fourth pick and planned to bring in about 20 players for workouts. They had Stanford center Brook Lopez at No. 4 on their draft board. General manager Sam Presti loved Westbrook’s athleticism, but he wasn’t sold on playing him alongside Durant. Plus, the team desperately needed a big to anchor its defense. In the run-up to the draft, Carlesimo cast his vote: Lopez. “There just aren’t that many 10-year bigs that come along,” says Carlesimo.
