Mason Plumlee: Nets think they're like the Beatles

Mike Stobe

Mason Plumlee was at the MSG training facility in Westchester Tuesday for the annual rookie photo shoot. He spoke openly about the Nets' own expectations for the season. He chose an interesting analogy.

"I think everybody in the Nets' organization is just excited about us being here," Plumlee said. "They're like 'I don't know what to expect this year. It's going to be a little different. We're going to be like The Beatles.' "

As The Record's Brian A. Giuffra asked, are the Nets now the Fab Five? (If so, we have to know which one is Ringo?)

Beyond comparing the team to the group that broke up four decades ago, Plumlee spoke the small window the Nets have to win a championship, which he said has to be the goal.

"We have to be thinking that because we have a team where we don't have four or five years to figure it out. We have guys who are near the ends of their careers and they want to win and win now," said Plumlee. "Billy King didn't put this team together to make the playoffs. He put it together to win and win big so we have to make that happen."

"I think everybody in the Nets' organization is just excited about us being here," Plumlee said. "They're like 'I don't know what to expect this year. It's going to be a little different. We're going to be like The Beatles.'
