Colin Stephenson of the Star Ledger asked Brook Lopez about the Dwight Howard rumors on Tuesday. Lopez, not surprisingly, claimed that the rumors don’t bother him at all and even stated that both Howard and he could co-exist in the frontcourt. Lopez added that his right arm was feeling great and that it wouldn’t be a problem next season.
I’ve definitely shown my desire for Dwight Howard to be in a Nets uniform. However, I have no qualms with Brook Lopez and I’m happy that Lopez isn’t allowing these rumors to distract him. Lopez has done everything the franchise has asked of him and is a pro’s pro. Hopefully, a dream comes true and both he and Howard do play in the frontcourt together.
