Only in Summer League: Mason Plumlee dunk-fest (VIDEO)

Jul 9, 2013, 1:22 AM EST

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.

      Let me guess, you live no where near Duke nor have any relevant ties making you a fan.

        I understand there are a lot of fake fans out there but just because someone is not from somwhere or didnt have family go to a certain school to be a fan. Im a great example. I grew up an hour north of Miami and now live in Miami and rep the Heat and Dolphins and am a big University of Miami fan even know i have never been to college. I also am a huge Memphis fan and have nothing to do with and have never been there in my life. No im not a bandwagon heat fan Ive been following them way before Lebron came here and actually know who Mourning and Hardaway is. You can be a fan of any team no matter what ties you have.

        I’ve been keeping up with duke done I was about 11

    He’s going to be good. I was surprised he slid as far as he did in the draft. He’s a polished big man with size and speed who learned under coach k for 4 years….

    I realize he doesn’t have the potential to be a super star, but I could see him being a 10-10 guy or at worst a really good third big.

    Maybe he’ll become good enough to give them an actual trade piece

    Both Plumlee brothers looked good in yesterday’s summer league games.

    Miami had better tighten the defensive screws if they hope to fulfill the promise of an Orlando Summer League Championship.

    Miles looks better so far in Summer League.
