Brook Lopez (born April 1, 1988) is a 7'0" American basketball center who plays for the New Jersey Nets of the NBA. He is the twin brother of fellow basketball player Robin Lopez. Lopez was selected 10th overall by the Nets in the 2008 NBA Draft, after playing two years for Stanford in the Pacific-10 Conference of the NCAA.

Brook Lopez was born in North Hollywood, Los Angeles to Deborah Ledford and his now-estranged father Heriberto Lopez, a native of Cuba. He was born into a life of basketball and art, as his grandfather played at the University of Colorado. Lopez moved from Hollywood to Oak Harbor, Washington while in second grade to be near his older brother, Alex, who was playing basketball at the University of Washington at the time. He moved to his current hometown of Fresno, California a year later, where he attended San Joaquin Memorial High School. While there, he played with his twin brother Robin Lopez, as well as Quincy Pondexter, a fellow NBA player for the New Orleans Hornets . Both teammates played with Lopez on their successful AAU team, the Elite Basketball Organization (EBO), along with Derrick Jasper and Tre'Von Willis, both of UNLV.

Both Brook and Robin competed in the 2006 McDonald's All-American Game against several current NBA players including Kevin Durant and Greg Oden.
