Totally off topic of actual basketball but I was in a bar the other night watching the nets beat the spurs. These two guys at the other end started ripping on Brook Lopez. I immediately got into convo with them and the one guy told me that when Brook was signing autographs at Pathmark last weekend, he was a total jerk. He didn't want to take pictures with anyone, was texting the whole time, and even made fun of an 8 year old kid for saying "Brook I love you". I see no reason for these guys to make up this as they were nets fans and said they were huge Brook fans before the incident. I never thought of Brook to be a jerk like these guys said but I want to know for myself. Was anyone there? Or has anyone had a similar experience with the nets players? I understand these are young kids who are forced to do these promotional events but I find it very frustrating that (if this is true) they can't take out an hour of their day without putting the phone down and talking to some kids. You aren't the Lakers or the Celtics. You are a 10 win team. Please put any input you guys have. Go nets, long live the future.
