Like most twins, Robin and Brook Lopez have a lot in common.

They are both tall, play in the NBA and love comic books. They are however, different people, with different basketball skill sets, different hair styles and perhaps more importantly, different names. A fact Chicago Bulls coach Fred Hoibert seems confused about:


A simple mistake by Hoiberg which likely won't cause any friction between him and Robin since the wild-haired Lopez is usually quite friendly. Lopez will also probably razz Hoiberg about the incident and continually joke about it.

It's a good thing though, that Benny the Bull didn't make this mistake. Because that would've led to some actual fighting words from the noted mascot-hating Lopez.

The Lopez brothers are used to getting confused for one another. (USATSI)
