So what motivates him? Is it the desire to be the best basketball player to ever live? The competitive drive to rip his opponent's throat out? The inner fire he channels to pour on the points and lead his team to victory?
According to Lopez:
"I don't really have a social life. I like hanging out with my guys here. So I really didn't want the season to end."
Oh, got it. Okay then. Thanks, Brook.
Frankly, I don't know what Lopez is talking about. He's a 7'2" comic book aficionado with a voice like Andre the Giant who wears backwards baseball caps and sports a sneakily intelligent side of self-deprication. He seems like a cool dude to hang out with. But if that's what's keeping the Nets alive, I'll take it.
