The always colorful and quirky Robin Lopez brought a new presence inside the Bulls' locker room.
Following the Bulls' first victory of the season Thursday night, Lopez talked in front of his locker with a framed picture of the pop star on the top shelf. Lopez said he and teammate Quincy Pondexter found the haul as they exited the Air Canada Centre last week following the season opener against the Raptors.
"We were pleased with the find," Lopez said, smiling.
Lopez then engaged in a playful give-and-take with reporters, detailing his fandom.
"You've got to respect Britney," Lopez said.
"Obviously, I don't want to show you (reporters) how young I am, but I grew up when she was in her prime," he said.
Lopez said his favorite album is Baby One More Time but that he isn't listening to Email My Heart.
"I don't know anybody who is listening to Email My Heart," Lopez said.
Lopez said he hasn't seen Spears in concert but he has seen Mariah Carey, whom he called "my No. 1 diva."
How long will Lopez keep up the picture of Spears?
"We'll always have Britney looking down on us," he said.
