A tribute to Marshall Plumlee, who just signed with the Clippers

Grabbed some rebounds, made some faces, ate some seafood.

NBA: New York Knicks at Memphis Grizzlies Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Happy birthday hermano!!! @willyhernangomez

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).
