after robin lopez fight, leave it to brother brook to make him the punchline


gee, thanks, bro.if bulls center robin lopez ever gets into another fight with the raptors' serge ibaka like the one that got both players ejected tuesday, lopez's twin brother brook lopez wants it known: he's all team ibaka.robin lopez and ibaka exchanged punches before teammates and coaches pulled them apart during the third quarter of the bulls' overtime loss in toronto. lopez said after the game he expects to be suspended."it was something apparently, a little old school nba," brook lopez said after his own game in which he shot a buzzer-beater to put the nets over the pistons."maybe we'll get a grudge match, who knows? i'm pulling for ibaka, though," he laughed.lopez kept the joke going when asked if he and robin ever mixed it up on the court: "absolutely, we absolutely did, and i can






no robin lopez? no problem as bulls romp past pistons


word from the nba office that center robin lopez would be unavailable to the bulls for their game against the pistons on wednesday night came as a surprise to absolutely no one.when you exchange punches the way lopez did with the raptors' serge ibaka the previous night, a suspension is warranted and the league didn't hesitate with its announcement that the combatants would each be forced to sit out one game.for the bulls, the timing could have been better as lopez's punishment meant he wasn't at the united center when they took the court against the pistons and their load of a big man, andre drummond. needing a victory to close the gap on the pistons for the ninth spot in the eastern conference, that left the bulls with a vacancy in the middle that was exacerbated because backup center cri

bulls center robin lopez finding his range


robin lopez's name doesn't usually come to mind when pondering the nba's top sharpshooters.still, the bulls center has been on target of late — and not just from inside the paint. in the three games before friday night's against the rockets at the toyota center, lopez was a blistering 19-for-27 from the floor for a .704 percentage."my teammates have done a great job of finding me in really good spots," lopez said. "i've had a good feel in the past few games. we're doing a good job of sharing the ball right now."lopez has been effective with his midrange jumper while defenses focus on shutting down jimmy butler and dwyane wade."it's something i've been a little more aware of this season," lopez said.

bulls' win streak vs. raptors ends; robin lopez ejected for fighting


one streak ended tuesday. another is virtually certain to end wednesday.but if a new streak is lengthened to two straight seasons out of the playoffs, think back to tuesday night at air canada centre.that's when the bulls somehow blew a 15-point lead over the final 6 minutes, 39 seconds of regulation, falling to the raptors for the first time since dec. 31, 2013, in a 122-120 overtime loss. suddenly, the 11 straight victories in the series don't feel so great.the bulls endured a scoreless drought of 5:05 in the fourth as the raptors ripped off a 15-0 run to tie the game.in overtime, jimmy butler, whose 37 points marked his first 30-point game since jan. 25, scored 15 seconds in, but the bulls didn't score again until a rajon rondo layup with 9.3 seconds left. that marked the first points b






robin lopez's nba education — and some high jinks — began in phoenix


for a moment during the suns' blowout home victory against the kings on april 3, 2009, shaquille o'neal turned into player-coach.o'neal, in "the big cactus" iteration of his many colorful nicknames, summoned his rookies goran dragic and robin lopez during a timeout."he demanded that goran run a pick-and-pop and i pull back for the 3-pointer," lopez said.the 7-footer's eyes still light up at the memory of the first of his mere five career 3-point attempts."it was an air ball," lopez said with comedic timing. "but it was online."the rest of what o'neal instructed and shared with lopez proved more on target.in fact, think about the basketball wisdom that lopez had around him in phoenix, where he spent his first four nba seasons. steve kerr drafted lopez 15th overall as the suns general manage

back in november of last year, nextbit started a closed beta program for its android 7.0 nougat update for the robin smartphone. many builds and many months later, today the final form of that update is finally going out to all nextbit robin owners. of course, as this is a staged rollout, it may take a while before it reaches all units in the wild. but it is coming.once you install the new software, you'll be running android 7.0, build 88, with the january 5, 2017 security patch level (and not a more recent one, unfortunately).as you'd expect, this version packs everything that google built into the first nougat iteration. not long ago we've seen a robin getting benchmarked with android 7.1.1 on board, so hopefully the beta builds for that will start soon - since nextbit promised to keep s
