Robin Lopez’s Guide To Book Shopping

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Just a few weeks ago we linked to a long interview with Portland center Robin Lopez, who talked about how much he’s enjoying his time in Portland and what a great fit he feels Portland is for his personality. In this video from Trail Blazers TV, we see Lopez loping around downtown PDX and visiting the iconic bookstore Powell’s.

Some things I enjoyed about this video:
1. Lopez’s classic Ken Griffey Jr. Mariners jersey.
2. The quick shot of Lopez helping out fellow customers by grabbing books off the higher shelves.
3. He calls the Science Fiction/Fantasy section “the gateway to graphic novels,” which he calls “the real treasures.”
4. His genuine excitement at finding a Walt Kelly “Pogo” book.

And that’s just a start. Watch this. It’s great…

    What a unique guy lol. If I didn’t watch basketball, I would never guess this dude was an NBA player. Kudos to him for being a nerd 🙂
