While he won’t grab any headlines on an NBA box score, Mason Plumlee has had an immense impact on the Brooklyn Nets this season. The rookie center finished with 8 points, 8 rebounds, and 3 blocks in the Nets’ close 88-87 victory over Miami. Plumlee had the most important play of the game when he blocked a LeBron James shot near the end of the game to seal the victory. There was a ton of complaining from Miami and James about the play since Plumlee did get James’ hand after swatting the ball. Was it a foul?
Plumlee played the game in the Nike Hyperdunk 2013 and made probably the biggest play of his career. Just don’t expect LeBron to salute the play any time soon.
