On our periodic forays to Bergen Street Comics we’ve been watching the new Barclays Center go up a few blocks away, so it’s good to know that
comics-loving Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez knows where to get his books:
Lopez smiled and headed to Bergen Street Comics, where the NBA star and superhero junkie dropped $75 after an in-depth conversation about “The Rocketeer.” “He was pretty knowledgeable,” an impressed worker at the shop said. Comics in hand, Lopez headed to hipster hot-dog joint Bark with his brother Alex and Nets execs.
That’s exactly where we go after a trip to Bergen Street! This Lopez guy knows his stuff.
