Mason Plumlee honors FDNY firefighters

On the 12th anniversary of 9-11, NBA Cares has released a video of Mason Plumlee honoring New York's firefighters, one of whom is his uncle.

Plumlee attends a fund-raising breakfast for an FDNY charity and he talks about the sacrifices the firefighters make, including the greatest sacrifice that 343 of them made on 9-11.

"it will mean a lot to him as he gets acquainted with New York to meet with a couple of real New Yorkers," said Dan Melia, an FDNY battalion chief, after meeting the Nets rookie.
