Robin Lopez takes selfie with Simpsons Doppelganger (Photo)


While much of the focus in the NBA right now is on the free agency period in which the NBA’s dynamic could potentially change dramatically, players already secured in their contracts are simply enjoying vacation during the NBA offseason.

Some players enjoy vacation trips with their families, while others enjoy relaxing in the comfort of their own home. For Portland Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez, he apparently enjoys taking trips to the Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, Florida.

The park is famous for its Simpsons section that envelopes theme park goers in the wacky world of Springfield. While meandering through the park, Lopez happened to stumble upon a doppelganger from the famous television franchise and thankfully took a hilarious selfie to share with the world:

Along with the picture was this caption from Lopez:

Die-hard Simpsons fans will undoubtedly know who Robert Terwilliger is, but the casual fan may know him as his stage name ‘Sideshow Bob’. Kelsey Grammer is the actor who has voiced the character for nearly 24 years, when he appeared in the first season of the Simpsons.

As for Lopez’s basketball career, he is coming off his strongest season of his six year career. After joining the Blazers last season, Lopez finally found his footing in the proper offense and became a force on defense as well. In 31 minutes per game, Lopez averaged 11 points, eight rebounds, and nearly two blocks.

With the Blazers showing promise this past year in the playoffs, they will certainly have high expectations going into next season.
