Morning Shootaround: Lopez’s roots, Johnson’s struggles, Stackshoes

  • Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez, who is half-Cuban, sat down with Adry Torres of Fox Sports Latino to talk basketball, family, and of course — comic books.

  • Jerry Stackhouse’s new shoe.

  • Joe Johnson is still struggling to fit in with this Brooklyn Nets offense. But after three games, he isn’t concerned.

  • More Johnson: ““It’s not about one individual or how my stats are or this and that. That’s not my concern. I’m concerned about us getting wins. And right now we need a win bad. We’ll come with a sense of desperation tomorrow.” (Note: that means today, against the Orlando Magic.)

  • The next Barclays Center act: comedian Russell Peters will perform tomorrow night at 8 P.M.
