Robin Lopez thanks Bulls in a way only he could

Bulls, Bucks, Robin Lopez

Robin Lopez joined the Milwaukee Bucks this offseason, leaving the Bulls after three seasons. And though he’ll no longer be suiting up in red and black, the 11-year veteran says he’s fortunate to have lived in the city of Chicago.

Lopez sent out a whimsical tweet on Thursday to thank the Bulls. Apparently, he was given some napkins with the word “Chicago” written across one side:

“I was handed this napkin today, just as ‘Chicago’ came up in shuffle,” Lopez wrote in his tweet. “Whether coincidence, fate, or the fact every other napkin said the same thing, I’m fortunate to be able to say I lived there.”

Robin Lopez should be a fine addition for the Bucks. He’ll be joining his brother, Brook, in Milwaukee’s frontcourt rotation. On paper, they could be one of the more formidable duos in the coming season.

Robin, now 31 years of age, made 74 appearances with the Bulls last season (36 starts), racking up averages of 9.5 points on 56.8 percent shooting from the field (22.6 percent from beyond the arc), 3.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.1 blocks in 21.7 minutes per outing.

The Bucks finished the 2018-19 season with an impressive 60-22 record, earning the team a No. 1 overall seed in the Eastern Conference. However, Milwaukee was ultimately defeated by the Toronto Raptors in the conference finals, 4-2.
