Mason Plumlee enjoyed his ride all the way to a GOLD in 2014 FIBA World Cup

Updated: September 15, 2014

Brooklyn Nets backup center Mason Plumlee finished his amazing summer with a Gold medal in the 2014 FIBA World Cup held in Spain Sunday with a 129-92 win over Serbia.

The super athletic center from Duke University went from the Orlando Summer League to being invited to try out with the USA team to actually playing his way onto the team and winning a Gold medal.

Plumlee played a modest nine minutes of garbage time in the gold medal game and scored only one point while grabbing four rebounds although he did average 2.2 points and 2 rebounds in his limited time on the court.

This is by far the craziest scenario I have ever seen for one NBA player going from such modest beginnings to earning a spot on the 2014 USA team in one summer. Its nuts!
