Sure, it may have been in a gym with roughly 84 people watching, and it may have been in a glorified V-neck T-shirt that made him look like an overly dressed, middle-aged dude at the gym, but it was still a nasty dunk.
Mason Plumlee after the furious dunk yells "COME GET SOME." Love it.— NBA Legion (@MySportsLegion) July 7, 2013
Plumlee took the ball into the lane, spun around the transitioning defense and slammed home a monster jam over Kentavious Caldwell-Pope.
Yes, I'm aware of what Mason Plumlee just did. I'm just as stunned as anyone.— Mike Prada (@MikePradaSBN) July 7, 2013
Was that the Mason Plumlee Era getting under way? He crushed that.— Josh Newman (@Joshua_Newman) July 7, 2013
Even better, on the ensuing defensive possession for the Nets, Plumlee drew an offensive foul on Andre Drummond.
Mason one-upped his brother Miles with this dunk, who had just put together a stat line of nine points, nine rebounds and six blocks in the game prior. That's definitely inspiring after he came up with 13 points, 22 rebounds and three blocks in 14 appearances last season.
All I can say is that the Zeller trio better look out, the Plumlees are coming on strong as the moderately productive brothers to beat following the long, drawn-out Collins Era of Jason and Jarron.
Then again, we're talking about the NBA Summer League here folks—don't get too crazy.
