Robin Lopez’s troubled history with NBA mascots is long and infamous. It’s not quite the Capulets vs. the Montagues, but it one of the more entertaining “feuds” in the NBA. It’s certainly more fun to watch than “the Clippers vs. all referees.”
Lopez’s feud continued Sunday as the Trail Blazers toyed with the struggling Raptors.
Before the game, the Raptors’ mascot was taunting Lopez wearing a Lopez/Sideshow Bob style wig. After the game CBSSports.com’s James Herbert asked Lopez about the Raptor and his feud.
He’s up there. He’s putting himself up there. Right now, I think he and Hooper from Detroit, they’re in the top tier. They’re really on my enemies list.
Don’t think this will be the end of it. Not by a long shot.
