No two players in the NBA are more familiar with each other’s game than Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez. Brothers who grow up together typically play sports against one another, but brothers who are the exact same age and grow up to be 7-feet tall probably take that to another level. With that in mind, it’s safe to assume the Lopez brothers are accustomed to dunking on one another. On Tuesday night, it was Brook who stole the spotlight by throwing down on Robin during the Brooklyn Nets’ win over the New Orleans Hornets. As you can see, Brook found it pretty funny after the fact while he was sitting on the bench. Considering Robin is the twin who was terrified on Splash Mountain (photo evidence here), we’re not really surprised. However, let us not lose sight of the fact that Brook was simply returning the favor. Three years ago when he was still with the Phoenix Suns, Robin cut through the lane and dunked on Brook. The brother who is clearly more talented and had the better career at Stanford (Brook) wanted no part of it. Until next time… Related posts: Robin Lopez got scared riding Splash Mountain (Picture) Kevin Love takes picture in front of cavemen, calls them Brook and Robin Lopez Robin Lopez Dating Michelle Wie
