The writing on the wall may have been clearly visible once the Knicks made official the signing of invitees Nigel Hayes, Xavier Rathan-Mayes and Jamel Artis, but now we know the truth: Marshall Plumlee is headed to L.A. to join the Clippers.

Thus ends the Knicks’ one-year Plumlee phase. Every club goes through a Plumlee phase nowadays—it’s just a part of growing up.
Marshall averaged a small number of points and rebounds and other such stats per game. He even started once, I think! He also made some funny faces.

The big man was a consummate end-of-the-bench glue guy, regularly performing GOOD TEAMMATE ACTS, like introducing young Spaniard Willy Hernangomez to American culture by taking him to see the...Jets? Eww...this was actually a very cruel prank to pull. You were history’s greatest monster, Mr. Plumlee.
He was even seen recently mentoring the likes of Damyean Dotson, Nigel Hayes and Luke Kornet—all of whom will be at the next Knicks training camp—at a local seafood restaurant. I’d rather eat seafood than go to a Jets game, and I’m allergic to seafood.
Good luck in L.A., Marshall Plumlee. You seem like a good dude (except for the Jets thing).
