Found July 12, 2012 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:

It’s a slow sports day when I find myself posting highlights from the NBA summer league.  Anywho, in a fierce, nasty battle sleeper between the Indiana Pacers and Boston Celtics summer league teams, ex-Dukie/current Pacer Miles Plumlee showed former Syracuse/current Celtic headache Fab Melo that white men can indeed jump.

Summer league teams are mostly comprised of guys who probably won’t stick in the league.  And judging by the call of this Plumlee dunk, they’re called by announcers who won’t stick either.

POTD Summer League Edition: Miles Plumlee on Sean Williams, and Fab Melo

Miles Plumlee, the 26th overall pick of the Indiana Pacers, is yet to play in an official NBA game, but he’s already getting busy defying stereotypes at the Orlando Summer League.  Plumlee is one of those dudes who serves as proof that a book truly should not be judged by its cover.  You look at the guy, and if he was a foot shorter you’d figure he’s never picked up a basketball...

It was a long time coming.  I hadn't written a What The Hell Happened To in quite some time.  I had writer's block.  A lack of up-to-date information on former Celtics.  So I've decided to make a special exception for a guy that was ready to "rock and roll in Boston."  That's what he said draft night himself...

Was Ray Allen Just a Mercenary?

Throughout this whole ordeal with Ray Allen turning his back on the Boston Celtics and choosing to sign with the team's biggest current rival in Miami, I have been strangely content.
