The Brooklyn Nets didn't have a lot of athleticism last year, and their point guards this year have struggled with injuries. No more problems there. Watch as point center Andray Blatche lofted an alley-oop from beyond the three-point line a little too high, and Mason Plumlee, the seven-footer with the 36" vertical, reaches high above the rim to slam it down.
Brooklyn Nets rookie center Mason Plumlee has been one of the team's few bright spots, and he showed off his skills again with an athletic reverse two-hand dunk off a pretty Andray Blatche feed against the Los Angeles Lakers. This isn't the first time Plumlee has taken flight, and it's refreshing on a team lacking athleticism. Watch above.
I wouldn't necessarily say Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Garnett turned back the clock with this slam dunk, since he's been doing this for a while. But maybe he turned it back to just last year. Garnett's struggled to score both at the rim and from midrange this season, and he was primed to put this one back as soon as the shot went up. A powerful jam from the team's emotional leader.
The last time Jason Kidd, Richard Jefferson, and Lawrence Frank were in the same building, it was for the 2007-08 New Jersey Nets. Even though it's 2013, RJ is still giving Nets fans a taste of the good ol' days. Jefferson, now with the Utah Jazz, went vintage against the Brooklyn Nets, throwing down a nasty reverse dunk midway through the 2nd quarter.
To my amazement, Jefferson still has a little bit of gas left in the tank. No matter what team RJ is playing for, I'll always appreciate one of his classic dunks.
