CHI Center: 7’0, 255 lbs; 10th year, Stanford 

NBA Role: active, all-around center • Hybrid

Robin, the younger Lopez, is an active center with an engaging personality in the locker room; has worked his way up from role player to more than respectable starting center since beginning his career outta Stanford in ’08; not the most dominating offensive player or most terrifying defender – Robin simply does everything well; decisive passer – Lopez is always cognizant of who’s open, can hit shooters if the D foolishly decides to converge on his post-ups; w/ his back to the rim, he’ll lend a few hooks and counters – isn’t very quick but likes to fake, then pull a couple protected-baby-hooks that are pretty damn effective*; decent shooter: hitting straightaway 15-footers is Robin’s specialty; vital rim protector & post defender – has Robin finally found a permanent home in the Windy City?

*RoLo’s one of the best bigs at sealing his man underneath the rim – he gets deep in the lane and lofts easy buckets after securing the advantage 

Signature Move: fake, protected hook
