Robin Lopez

Twin brothers Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez are arguably two of the most likable players in the NBA, and it's stories like this one that continue to reinforce why these guys are so beloved amongst both their peers and fans alike.

The brothers, who were born in Fresno, California, donated $25,000 to help restore and rebuild Storyland/Playland, an amusement park in their hometown of Fresno. This is part of a half-a-million dollar need to get the rebuild done by 2016.

From the Fresno Bee:

"It’s important to preserve things like Storyland that give kids a chance to just be kids," Brook Lopez says. "I am very excited to be part of Storyland’s rebirth."

Robin Lopez adds, "Storyland was a great part of us growing up in Fresno and I am so glad we are able to help bring it back to life."

The Lopez brothers now both live in New York, as Brook plays for the Nets, of course, and Robin just signed this summer to play with the New York Knicks. To which I ask...

If you're up for it, Lopez brothers, how about a trip to Playland in Rye, New York? Rides are on me!
