The Milwaukee Bucks kept most of its core together in free agency this summer, losing Malcolm Brogdon via a sign-and-trade with the Indiana Pacers but retaining George Hill, Brook Lopez, and Khris Middleton. As for additions to bolster the roster around those guys, the two big names were veteran swingman Wes Matthews and frontcourt anchor Robin Lopez.
The Bucks have hopes of winning an NBA title this year, and time will tell if these various moves can help them accomplish that. One of the members of the team’s core believes everything the team did this summer deserved a thumbs up, with one major exception.
In an interview with Alex Kennedy of Hoops Hype, Brook Lopez revealed he is a big fan of how Milwaukee looks heading into the 2019-20 campaign. If he had his way, though, he would not share a locker room with the dastardly Robin Lopez.
I thought we made all of the right moves… pretty much. Except for signing Robin. I don’t know about that one. (Laughs) We’ll see how that goes…
Of course, as anyone who knows the Lopez twins is away, Brook is kidding. He went on to mention that lining up alongside his brother is going to be “fun,” and mentioned that their mom is especially excited, as she was born in Milwaukee and spent some time in the city during their childhood. As for Robin, well, perhaps he’s also excited about the opportunity, but he, too, has roasted his brother in recent days while Brook’s been suiting up for Team USA in Australia.
Australia. Wake up.
You deserve better than…that
I know, I've seen Quigley Down Under at least once. https://t.co/yHKGIGrtOC

A free idea for someone is a camera that follows these two around all season long. I will pay $19.99 a month to watch it.
