In talking with NBA Philippines, Brook Lopez was asked to compare the Nets' off-season moves with those of other teams. Lopez instead talked about what he thinks the Nets did best.
"The moves we made, we've created a fantastic core. We have a lot of players that complement our core," Lopez told the NBA.com reporter, adding, "and more importantly, I think we've helped create a good team, not just a great group of players, but a real team."
Lopez declined to talk much about Dwight Howard, saying stone-faced, "It's fun to test myself against him." He did say his brother Robin is the player he most likes to play against.
