One thing that I didn’t know about Portland Trail Blazers center Robin Lopez was that he was kinda obsessed with the realm of Disney.
Recently, the fine folks over at the Willamette Week did an interview with Robin and decided to ask him what his favorite Disney ride was.
Lopez’s answer was beautiful crafted:
What’s your favorite ride at Disneyland?
Pirates of the Caribbean, by far. It’s the best re-creation of reality they’ve done so far. There’s a storyline, and it kind of gets lost. They did such a great job of putting subtle themes in the ride. Everything’s very deliberate. But it is also very natural, very chaotic in its own sense. There’s something perfect about that, and it’s not been topped.
Thanks to the interview, we also learned that Robin has been in the special Disney adults-only “Club 33″”:
Since you’ve become famous, have you been to the secret Disneyland club that serves alcohol?
Club 33? It’s cool. Brook and I became members. That’s one of the things we always wanted to do since we were little, because you always hear about it. Going up there for the first time, that felt like holy ground a little bit. It was surreal.
