NBA Twins Forced to Find Separate Homes Because Their Cats Hate Each Other

NBA Twins Forced to Find Separate Homes Because Their Cats Hate Each Other

Robin and Brook Lopez are two of the most recognisable faces in American sport at the moment, but it appears not everything is hunky dory behind the scenes.

The duo are regarded by many as being amongst the best basketball players currently playing the NBA, and the brothers are notoriously tight.

They once admitted to skipping out on practise during their college days at Stanford to spend an afternoon at Disneyland, and with Brook currently playing for Brooklyn Nets, and Robin moving just across town by joining the New York Knicks last summer, surely it was a no-brainer to share a flat, right?

The rent in New York can be ludicrous at times, so, on the face of it, it seems like a straight forward decision to share digs but there’s a sinister reason behind why they can’t: Brook’s evil cat.

Ahead of their first match against each other, Robin told The New York Post: “Brook’s cat is very two-faced.

“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 pushed on how much sense it would make, he added: “The cats really wouldn’t get along. They just wouldn’t allow it.”

The Knicks and Nets, along with the Lopez twins, take on each other this coming Friday night. We’re sure the cats will have it on Sky+.
