If you were going to make a short list of various things that could conceivably happen in the NBA while still being just weird enough to take pause, said list would probably go something like this:
- JaVale McGee does something nonsensical and a little embarrassing
- Chris Bosh does something creepy with his mouth during a basketball game
- Brook and Robin Lopez write a comic book together
Well, let’s cross No. 3 off the list. From Nets Are Scorching:
“My twin brother (Robin) and I, we’re always writing, creating stuff,” Lopez said after practice today. “A lot of it’s action & adventure, but it takes from a lot of different genres.”
He’s also hopeful about getting things published. “We have lots of finished ideas, we need to work on getting them published now. We’ve been in a lot of meetings with a lot of different companies. It takes time, and in this offseason a lot was going on.”
Yeah, of course this is happening. There are only so many hours in a day that a person can play basketball, and when you’re as big of comic book freaks as these guys are, it’s only natural that you’d start writing your own comic books. They couldn’t really help it, could they? No way.
Of course, if we have any chance of seeing what these two dudes came up with, we’re going to have to hope and pray that someone sees the merit in publishing a comic book written by two professional basketball players. (Maybe contact the Denver Nuggets marketing department? Just an idea, relax.) And seriously, this is a comic book penned by the Lopez twins, so I think we can all agree that getting to read it is of the utmost importance.
I can’t even begin to guess at what they would come up with, but I’m sure it involves twins with super powers that are somehow connected to their hair. Honestly, that’s a good enough start. Get on it, DC Comics.
