    Plumlee led the Pacers with 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting. He also contributed eight boards and three blocked shots.

    Certainly, Plumlee moving closer to gaining the "most consistent" player award for the Pacers this Summer League following the Lance Stephenson sequel gives Larry Bird just a little more reason to be pleased with the pick. The Pacers touted Plumlee as a player who was ready to play immediately, and he has shown a lot of that through the first three games. A better offensive touch than previously given credit for and a rebounding game that is, at the very least, there, unlike Orlando Johnson's touted offensive game.

    This is the perfect example of what college is for. I really don't think that if Miles had went to Stanford that he would be this far along. Duke put him in a great position. He has a ring, degree, and a family that opens doors. Miles is also opening his on doors now by his ability. I think this will give Mason and Marshall more confidence and relief. I say relief because when your bro has first round money and it was unexpected, it is just gravy for the whole family. I am sure they were doing fine but I am also sure that over the years and countless camps and such for three boys that the gas bill added up

    I hear he's already beat Tyler Hansbrough out for a spot. He will be the first Big off the bench. Tyler being shopped to the Bobcats .... Oh dear god...

    "It's not a fashion show out there." You're right Tyler, it certainly isn't.

    Probably playing basketball, as opposed to being the team's hockey goon.

    Usually UNC fans want make a bogus claim about a lack of Coach K players in the NBA and his inability to develop NBA players. Now it's "just another boy playing with other boys on the court".

    maybe i'm wrong, and we're already started the 12/13 NBA season, but no one has played a second for anyone yet.

    the fact remains.... he's just another boy playing with other boys on the court....

    http://arizonasports.com/41/1672038/Plumlee-had-most-surprising-preseason

    The Phoenix Suns' President of Basketball Operations, Lon Babby, believes his team had a great preseason, which it finished at 5-2.
    "We are a summer league and preseason juggernaut," he told Arizona Sports 620's Dan Bickley Show with Vince Marotta, jokingly.

    "I thought it was a terrific preseason, not because we won five games -- I think that's good for our confidence and all of that," he went on.

    "But I just think we learned a lot about all our players and implemented a system and did a good job with that."

    Babby went on to talk about the play of new players like Eric Bledsoe, Gerald Green, Archie Goodwin and company. He discussed the Bledsoe and Goran Dragic backcourt and how it worked out. And he mentioned improvements on the defensive end.

    But when asked by the show which player he thought had the most surprising performance in the preseason, Babby's answer was a bit surprising.

    "If you limited me to one, I think I'd have to say Miles Plumlee," he said. "He's played very, very well."

    In seven games this preseason, spanning 130 minutes, Plumlee managed 32 rebounds, second only to Marcin Gortat and Markieff Morris, and eight blocks, which trailed only Gortat among Suns players.

    "Miles has been terrific," Babby said. "You know, rebounding the ball, blocking shots, running the floor. I think that he was a very pleasant surprise."

    Babby later explained how general manager Ryan McDonough targeted Plumlee, who spent his rookie season with the Indiana Pacers, as a player who would fit the team's needs.


    "Ryan saw it in summer league," Babby said of McDonough's trip to Orlando to scout.

    With the Pacers last season, Plumlee played in just 14 games, averaging just under four minutes per game and accruing 13 total points with 22 total rebounds.
