This was just a thought crossing my mind of how Mason Plumlee could be a game changer sort of like how Tyson Chandler was for that other team in NYC . It just the first thing that comes to mind when I him play, to me if he comes out of playing for team USA with anything it should be Rebounding, and a stronger defensive instinct, of course he needs to work on his shooting touch but maybe 2-3 years down the line he will be a contender for a spot on the team.
