The Nets and Knicks play their first game Friday night at Madison Square Garden but the prelims have already begun, and wouldn't you know it, it's Robin, that cur, who's casting the first stone ... at Brook's cat.
"Brook’s cat is very two-faced," Robin tells The Post. "Everybody loves Brook’s cat. To everybody’s face, he’s such a nice cat. And it may sound like I’m joking, but I am dead serious. He acts like a lazy, sweet cat when everybody is looking. But when their heads turn, he’ll try to chase after [my cat] Edward. The second I lay eyes on him, he’ll act like, ‘I’m a cherub. I’m innocent.’ I’m not buying it."
It doesn't end there.
"I am going to get to dunk on [Brook], and I will block him at least twice," Robin says matter-of-factly. "I’m generally going to destroy his soul."
Apparently, the Post was unaware of the last two times the brothers played in New York. Last April 6, with the Nets pushing for the playoffs, Brook had 32 points and nine rebounds to Robin's eight and seven. And two years ago, on March 13, this happened.
So how do these two get along at Thanksgiving. Mike Mazzeo has the goods on that. It's actually quite boring.
With both playing in NYC, Brook Lopez had Thanksgiving dinner with twin brother Robin and Robin's girlfriend. "My mom came out, and she cooked for us. It was very relaxed," Brook said. "We hung out, we got Thanksgiving dinner, and two hours later, myself, Robin and his girlfriend went to 7-11 and got Slurpees, junk food, chips and queso. We just decided to all be fatties."
