Quick question how high do you see Mason Plumlee going the draft? And what could be his greatest weakness and strength in the NBA?
Greatest strengths: rebounding, athleticism and effort
Greatest weaknesses: very little translatable offensive skill.
I really think he'll shock alotta people
JP - "How high do you see Mason Plumlee going in the draft?"
Siggy - "Late lotto."
JP - "No."
LoL.. Siggy, your opinion is wrong man..
Who thought David Lee would ever be this good out of florida? All he did there was hustle and rebound.
Nobody thought David Lee would be this good but he was much better handling the ball than Plumlee is coming out of college. Lee has an ability to create for himself and others that Mason will never develop. He certainly could be a late lottery pick in this weak draft but I would say he will be picked more around the 18-22 range. I have seen him listed as high as 13 in some mocks but that will really take a team falling in love with him...but it happens look at Indiana shockingly picking his brother in the first round. Plumlee could develop into a good NBA player under the radar because he is very athletic and appears dedicated as you can see by his improvements this season. I still only see him in a best case scenario as a Kris Humphries type player which isn't a bad thing but it won't be that vital in raising any banners either.
P.S. You should probably take him out of the 3rd overall slot in your mock draft. No team is going to fall in love with him that much...
I personally wouldn't take him in the lottery.
He doesn't really have a discernible skill that sets him apart besides dunking.
Ask me how mad I still am at the Pacers for drafting Miles Plumlee. Hint: it's a lot.
And I always thought Miles was a better player than Mason, so no, I wouldn't take Mason in the lottery. Or the first round. Maybe he's worth a second.
