Brothers Brook & Robin Lopez, the big men for the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets, squared off recently in an epic Light Saber battle.

By Robby Sabo

It’s been reported recently that Brook Lopez and his brother Robin Lopez don’t get along too well. Well, actually, it’s their cats who hate each other.

The twin brothers’ cats hate one another so much that the big men could never live together in New York City, via Kristen Fleming of the New York Post:

“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.”

When the cats are left at home, magic like this occurs (video above).
