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 in his life (considering his haircut, I’d have guessed his favorite hobbies include sailing, wine tasting, and big game hunting).  However, Plumlee is actually leading Indiana’s summer squad in blocks, and he’s second in points and rebounds.  He’s shown a fair bit of athleticism in the process of collecting these digits, too.  In yesterday’s loss to the Celtics he elevated for a one-hander over the high-flying Sean Williams, then gave shot-blocking prospect Fab Melo the business with two hands.

Well damn, Miles Plumlee, those were a couple of man’s jams!  I’d say it’s time for a buzz… that schoolboy cut needs to go back to fifth grade.
