Brook Lopez Helps Out Brother Robin in Their War Against NBA Mascots


By JOHN DORN

Possibly even more than for being a strong defensive anchor, new Knicks center Robin Lopez has established a reputation around the NBA as being a destroyer of opposing mascots.

Standing at 7'0", Lopez has the size to take down the gargantuan, furry creatures, and he's rarely backed down over the last few seasons. He's already terrorized a number of the league's mascots, dating as far back as 2013. Several of the incidents have found their way to Twitter (because mascots can apparently tweet now).




Occasionally, though, RoLo ends up on the wrong side of the altercation.




Moving on to next season, though, Lopez has his eyes set on a takedown for "humanity's work," in his own words. Pierre the Pelican -- you know, the mascot that used to look terrifying, and after a makeover, still looks really creepy -- is next in line.

Lopez spoke with Howard Beck of Bleacher Report, detailing his rivalry with the mascot species.




We look forward to seeing Robin continue his bouts this coming season when the Knicks hit the road. Unfortunately, New York doesn't have a mascot for Lopez to befriend.
