Robin Lopez
Wiki

Robin Byron Lopez (born April 1, 1988 in North Hollywood, California) is an American professional basketball player. On June 26, 2008 he was drafted by the NBA's Phoenix Suns as the 15th overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. He played basketball for the Stanford Cardinal, and he is the twin brother of former college teammate Brook Lopez, now playing for the New Jersey Nets.

Robin Lopez was born in North Hollywood, California to Heriberto Lopez and Deborah Ledford. He was born into a life of basketball, as his grandfather played at the University of Colorado. Lopez moved from Hollywood, California 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. There, he played with his twin brother Brook Lopez, as well as current Washington standout Quincy Pondexter. Both teammates played with Lopez on their successful AAU team, the Elite Basketball Organization (EBO), along with Derrick Jasper of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Tre'Von Willis of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Lopez was named MVP of the Adidas Superstar Camp Underclass All-Star game his junior year and to both the 2006 McDonald's All American team and the Parade All-American team his full senior year.

Lopez was one of just three players for the Cardinal team to start all 31 games in the 2006–2007 season. He averaged 7.5 points and 5.5 rebounds per game, while averaging 24 minutes. He led the team with 73 blocked shots, breaking the Stanford record for a freshman and recording the second highest single season record in Stanford history. This mark also was the highest in the Pacific 10 conference. With his twin brother, Brook, the two blocked more shots than seven Pac-10 teams. Lopez also had two double-doubles on the season.
