Following his team’s 110-99 victory over the New York Knicks, Brook Lopez performed his post-game locker room interview duties in a Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain t-shirt:

A bit of a surprise, since most people that wear Harry Potter gear tend to go for Gryffindor House, which Harry belonged to. But Lopez said he was a Hufflepuff guy “all the way.” “You get to choose what house you’re in,” Lopez explained to The Brooklyn Game. “The books taught us that.”
Here’s a description of Hufflepuff from the Harry Potter Wiki:
Students belonging to this house are known to be hard-working, friendly, loyal, honest and rather impartial. It may be that due to their values, Hufflepuffs are not as competitive as the other houses, or are more modest about their accomplishments. Hufflepuff is the most inclusive among the four houses; valuing hard work, patience, loyalty, and fair play rather than a particular aptitude in its members.
Sounds about right to me.
