Mason Plumlee latest Dukie to go viral
First it was Kyle Singler's impressive trick shot video, which you may have seen during ESPN's broadcast of the Duke-Michigan State game Wednesday night. The latest Dukie to create an incredibly cheesy viral video? One Mason Plumlee, who demonstrates his "three-ball dunk drill" to the dulcet sounds of "Danger Zone" in this week's Duke Blue Planet release.
Yes, the "three-ball dunk drill" is exactly what it sounds like. Though I'm not sure it's technically a "drill." Observe:
Plumlee has another impressive dunk about halfway through the video: He catches a Nolan Smith pass off the back of the backboard and finishes for a reverse slam, the kind of thing you usually only see in dunk contests. And, of course, Seth Curry's brief cameo -- "Look up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Mason Plumlee!" -- should not go without mention.
More than anything, though, it's another reason to be impressed with Duke so far this season. The Blue Devils are the best team in the country despite the fact that they seem to spend all their practice time creating YouTube clips.
