Brook Lopez May Have An In To Play A Wookiee In The Next Star Wars Movie

Brook Lopez, Chewbacca

Last month Brook Lopez admitted to the Mitch Abramson of the New York Daily News he’s a huge fan of Star Wars. The seven-foot Nets center has been having a hard time recently coming off the bench as Lionel Hollins attempts to shake the Nets out of their season-long slumber; Brook even recorded his first scoreless game against Indiana on Dec. 27. But there’s good news on the horizon, Lopez might get a chance to actually appear in the next Star Wars release as a Woikee (think Chewbacca, if you were too busy getting laid in high school to remember what a Wookiee is).

Nike Introduces The Jordan Melo M11 (Pics)

For those of us getting a bit long in the tooth — guilty as charged — it seems practically an eternity ago that the Jordan Brand shocked the sneaker world by signing a precocious teenager named Carmelo Anthony to be a cornerstone and an ambassador.

Though Anthony was fresh off leading Syracuse to a National Title as a freshman, it nonetheless seemed a bit of a leap of faith, much as it was for Nike to simultaneously sign LeBron James out of high school. This, after all, was no fledgling brand, and with Michael Jordan wrapping up a career that many consider the greatest of all time, this seemed to equate to a passing of the torch. Was Carmelo up to the task? Would anyone be?

Seven All-Star Games, a scoring title and 11 sneakers later, it has become obvious Anthony — who grew up favoring the Air Jordan 9, which he wore both in high school and college — was a perfect selection to grow along with Jordan’s sneaker powerhouse. Read More »
