One of the positives coming into the draft for Duke center Mason Plumlee was that he was a good athlete for his size — he moves well when he rolls, he runs the floor well in transition, and he can finish at the rim.
Combine those attributes with the up-and-down, disjointed game of Summer League and you get the Mason Plumlee third quarter dunk-fest.
Plumlee has looked solid for the Nets in the preseason, which is a good sign, still the first round pick is going to have a hard time finding minutes in Brooklyn behind Brook Lopez and Andray Blatche.
