Battie: "Lopez Can Dominate Like Howard"

It sounds like training camp hyperbole, but Tony Battie likes the comparison between past and present teammates. "Dwight is an athletic freak. But Brook’s presence can be just as dominating." It's about size and skillset compensating for athleticism, says Battie, who also compared Lopez, favorably, to Tim Duncan. "Hopefully they're confident in me in whatever I do," said Lopez, who understands he has a bigger role.
