Mamadi Diakite has replaced Robin as Brook Lopez’s ‘little brother’ originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

During the 2019-20 NBA season, the Lopez Brothers -- Brook and Robin -- got the rare opportunity to share the court at the professional level. Both members of the Milwaukee Bucks, it was their first time as teammates since their college days at Stanford.

This season, Brook is still with the Bucks while Robin has joined the Wizards. No longer together, it appears that Brook has found a replacement sibling for the time being.

Prior to the sibling's matchup on Saturday night, the Bucks released a video on Twitter in which Brook Lopez and rookie Mamadi Diakite showed a blooming bromance. Within it, Lopez referred to the former Virginia star as his "little brother."

He didn't end there, as Brook -- who is one minute older than Robin -- made sure to get in a slight diss and Diakite played along. 

"My real little brother, I could do without him. I don't mind him not being there anymore. But this brother, my real real little brother," Lopez said.

"Sorry Robin, sorry. That's the way it is though. It's all love, all love. I haven't met you yet, but I love you too," Diakite said.

Of course, Robin wasn't going to let that slide without getting a word in. The Wizards big man took to Twitter to share that the feeling of not missing his brother is mutual.

As the two face off on Saturday night, there could be a few extra shoves and bumps in the paint. Chalk that up to some old-fashioned brotherly love.
