Brook Lopez becomes Nets All-Time Block Leader

Late last night in the game against the Los Angeles Lakers, Brook Lopez swatted his 864th shot to pass George Johnson and become the Nets' all-time leader in blocked shots. Lopez has accrued these numbers in 9 seasons, and it is now the first statistical category he leads the Nets in. He ranks in the top 10 in every other major category except for Assists and three pointers, and he has added a 3 shot to his game this season so perhaps that will eventually change as well. I'll enjoy watching to find out. Unfortunately it wasn't enough as the Lakers pulled out the win.

Here's his card from 2016-17 Hoops, #85. Note that he is being guarded by twin Robin on this card.
Hopefully I will be able to get back into regular posting shortly, I have a lot of things I want to do here, but I couldn't let this milestone go by without a post. You'll see more of Brook in the future, as he's one of my all-time favorite Nets.
