When Mason Plumlee first slipped on his Duke uniform, there were comparisons to Christian Laettner tossed around as his athleticism and surprisingly efficient jump shot were praised.
Plumlee is probably the most athletic player on the team as he possesses super human leaping ability and good speed for a player of his size.
He has, however, struggled with his post play and ability to work on the block.
Still, his rebounding contributions coupled with his stellar passing ability and athleticism is sure to make his presence felt on the court this season.
If Plumlee developed some go to post moves over the summer, he might just be the dominant big man Duke has been looking for.
To be honest though, the chances are slim that Plumlee catapults himself into the Duke big man elite. His services will certainly be of use though, as his rebounding will spark the break and his high flying finishes will ignite the Cameron Crazies.
