Brother on Brother Crime (Lopez Twins)
So what happens when a twin brother dunks on his sibling? Does the cosmos collapse as a result? Do the laws of nature permit such a thing? Would such a dunk create a rip in the fabric of space/time, causing the universe to collapse and forming a singularity? Well, since we survived the Grant twins playing successful basketball, I’d say the general public is safe — but you can never be too careful.
Just ask Brook Lopez of the New Jersey Nets, who got absolutely posterized by his twin brother, Robin, who plays for the Phoenix Suns. While it’s widely considered the Brook is the better player out of the two, who combine to give us almost 14 feet of a basketball player, Robin won this particular round. Of course, one could argue Robin won all the rounds because he doesn’t have to play for the New Jersey Nets. So while Brook might be the better prospect, his brother is in a much better basketball environment, something the 118-94 final score indicates quite nicely.
Furthermore, Phoenix has a record of 25-18. The Nets, on the other hand, will be lucky to win 20 games all season — in fact, a double-digit win total for the season looks doubtful, considering the Nets’ 3-38 record.
Oh and one more brother-on-brother thought, when a twin dunks on his sibling, does the dunker share the same kind of “Oh damn, I just got housed” feeling the dunkee does?
