1. On the left is Robin Lopez, of the New Orleans Hornets. On the right is Brook Lopez, of the Brooklyn Nets. In case you can’t tell, they are twins.
Both guys played on the same Stanford team and were drafted in the first round of the 2008 draft — Brook went 10th, and Robin went 15th. But since then, Brook has been by far the better player; just look at the comparison of their stats this year, keeping in mind that this is by far the best season Robin’s had so far.
Plus, Brook’s Nets will be a playoff team this year. Robin’s Hornets will not. But Brook had to rub it in Tuesday night, when the Nets hosted the Hornets in Brooklyn.
