Brooklyn Nets Center, Brook Lopez, who is coming off of foot-surgery has been cleared to play, and will be ready to go for the 2014-15 season. "I was fully cleared for play and everything a week and a half ago.  It's great. Now its time to get back in shape.....I love playing in Brooklyn," he added. "Being drafted in New Jersey, it was a surprise the first time i heard we were going there. But its been the best situation thats possible for me. Ownership has made winning its No. 1 priority and when you have that kind of mentality coming from up top, it trickles down to the rest of the team. You cant help but buy into it."
