The biggest positive for the Nets in 2014 was the emergence of Mason Plumlee. Plumlee had high expectations coming into the season and when he got off to a slow start this season it was concerning for the Nets. When given a chance to start, Plumlee started to shine for Brooklyn. As a starter this season Plumlee is averaging 14.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game to go along with a field goal percentage of 65 percent. Plumlee is already off to a good start in 2015.

Plumlee’s emergence has been so impressive that the Nets have virtually made him untradeable. The Nets can only hope that Plumlee keeps up this level of dominance in 2015 and for many more years to come. Plumlee being drafted by the Nets was overshadowed by the Nets acquiring Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Kevin Garnett via trade on draft night. Quietly, the best thing that happened on that night was taking Mason Plumlee with the 22nd pick in the 2013 NBA draft.
