The Nerdiest Twins in the NBA

The Lopez TwinsI just came across this awesome interview with Robin Lopez of the NBA's Portland Trailblazers. His twin brother, Brook, plays for the Brooklyn Nets.

How many comics do you own? 
Not as many as Brook. He’s pretty much collecting everything DC Comics publishes right now. I have two or three titles I’ve collected and tried to complete those runs.
It gets nerdier than that, but the best Q&A (as called out by Deadspin) is this one:

What are your top three favorite wizards?
Gandalf’s definitely on the list. Trying to pick my favorite Harry Potter wizard, I can easily go with Dumbledore. I always liked Professor Lupin. I’ll put him on the list. [A day after the interview, Lopez asked via his publicist to take Lupin off his list and replace him with Hermione Granger.]
I got to pick a Disney wizard. Can I pick Angela Lansbury in Bedknobs and Broomsticks?
If I re-do my 10 sets of excellent twin athletes, they bump the Morris twins for this answer alone.
