Brook Lopez is a better basketball player than his body will let him be. And that's what makes this truly sad.

Brook Lopez 2013 Stats: GP: 67, MPG: 31.12, FG%: 53.35% 3FG%: 0%, FT%: 79.04%, RPG: 6.54, APG: 1.0
RESOLUTION: Oh, Brook. You deserve better than this.
Lopez hasn’t spoken to the media since breaking his foot in a December 20th overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, ending his season and sending him to his fourth foot surgery in two years. It’s a crushing blow both for his career development and the franchise’s chances at contention.
The last thing Lopez said to the media came on Friday morning, when I asked him what he’d get his twin brother Robin for Christmas if he could get him anything for Secret Santa. (Here’s what he said. It’s kind of depressing in retrospect.)
So for the new year, I can only offer one resolution: stay patient, stay healthy, rest as long as possible, and please, please come back stronger than ever.
HIGH POINT: Duh.
LOW POI- I don’t have to do this. You and I both already know.
