Nets big man Brook Lopez has a new admirer: Supermodel Chrissy Teigen
Yeah, that’s Chrissy Teigen, by the way. You know what Brook Lopez looks like.
Moving on, while Brook Lopez has been putting up big numbers throughout his five-year NBA career, the Brooklyn Nets center appears to be having a coming-out party of sorts this season. Perhaps it has something to do with the Nets moving to Brooklyn or maybe people are simply just starting to catch on to what a phenomenal big man Lopez has been during his young career.
The fact is, Brook Lopez is beginning to get noticed big time. And not only that, one of the many perks of an increasingly higher profile is the kind and caliber of people who take notice. Case in point: Supermodel Chrissy Teigen.
Teigen was at Barclays Center on Tuesday to watch the hometown Nets host the Los Angeles Lakers and the stunning model took to Twitter to gush about how much she is turning into a huge fan of Lopez.

Not too shabby.
For those unfamiliar with Teigen’s work, here’s a very brief primer:
And get this: Not only is she drop-dead gorgeous, Teigen is also something of an accomplished cook with her own food blog.
Sadly for Brook Lopez, Miss Teigen is already taken. She is engaged to singer-songwriter John Legend. But what can he offer her that Lopez cannot? Okay, never mind on that one. But how about a fellow blogger?
