Marshall Plumlee Won Dunk Contest Thanks to Teammate Andy McMillian
Marshall Plumlee is the younger brother of Duke players Miles and Mason Plumlee, and has committed to the university himself. Back in December, Plumlee, a 7-footer, won the City of Palms Dunk Contest, but it looks like it had more to do with the talents of a teammate than his own:
None of the dunks Plumlee did without the help of teammate Andy McMillian seem impressive enough to win any dunk contest. We’ve seen all of these passes before, but never from a kid who appears to be about 15 years old, which could be attributed to the fact that he’s standing next to Plumlee. It seems to me like Plumlee should bring this kid along with him to Duke ala Greg Oden and Mike Conley Jr. I stumbled upon this video and thought you Duke fans might like to see what you’ve got to look forward to and the rest of us can hate you even more for your good fortune.
The City of Palms Classic is one of the top high school basketball tournaments in the nation. Teams from all over the country, including Elizabeth St. Patrick (N.J.) led by Mike Gilchrist and Winter Park (Fla.) led by Austin Rivers, brought their talents to (not quite) South Beach for the five-day event last month.
