Brook Lopez has a number of accolades in his career. Lottery pick. All-Star center. Multiple-season 20-point scorer. Max contract player. Tonight, he adds another: Star Wars Bobblehead model.
Lopez’s bobblehead debuted Monday night in a Nets game at Barclays Center against the Orlando Magic. He’d gotten his first sneak peek weeks before, when the Nets played the Kings in Sacramento, and he approved.
“I think I look good in the Jedi robes,” Lopez analyzed. “I absolutely would choose to lounge around in black sweatpants under my Jedi robes.”
But while he would choose to, Lopez does not actually own any Jedi robes. “I just have my lightsaber. It’s an orange blade. Black and silver hilt.”
Lopez is not the only Nets player to have been Bobbleheaded. The Nets held a Joe Johnson Bobblehead Night earlier this month, and will have a Thaddeus Young “Thaddinator” Bobblehead on January 4.
“We’re going to have such a cool bobblehead collection,” Lopez joked. “We have three bobbleheads by January 4.”
The Nets are 7-16 and sit 14th in the Eastern Conference.
