Star Wars fans from around the world would agree that one of the most highly-debated topics they have is why Chewbacca did not get a medal of bravery in the ceremony at the end of “A New Hope.”
Many have considered that a tragedy and monumental mistake, but thanks to two brothers who were in Disneyland last Monday, they have rectified the injustice Chewie had to endure. These brothers were not your ordinary siblings though, they are both seven-footers who play in the NBA, Brook Lopez and Robin Lopez.
Robin, who will be playing for the Chicago Bulls this coming season, took to Twitter and shared photos of him and his twin brother giving Chewbacca his much-deserved hardware.

These are the kind of scenes we see during the off-season and it’s nice to know the brothers enjoying themselves together with a trip to the “happiest place on earth.”
The fans of the Brooklyn Nets as well as the Bulls, are hoping to see more success from their teams and would want medals to be awarded to their centers, and maybe a championship trophy to one of them soon.
