From NBA to the Rangers

Marshall-Plumlee

Could you guess how many Plumlee brothers played in the NBA and which brother played in which team? I never could. It didn't help their parents named them Miles, Mason, and Marshall (they also have a sister Madeline). While Miles and Mason still play in the NBA, Marshall changed his career path.

After getting signed by the Knicks and playing on their G-League team, Marshall tried to stay in the NBA by playing for the Agua Caliente Clippers and on a two-way for the Milwaukee Bucks. His career wasn't going as well as his brothers' career did so Marshall decided to follow his other passion.

From today on, he is Second Lt. Marshall Plumlee, a member of the US Army Rangers. Marshall Plumlee successfully completed the grueling Ranger school and is now a member of the elite unit. After ROTC at Duke, Plumlee commissioned in the New York National Guard in 2017. His mother Leslie was there to pin his tab on him.

“I'll meet the occasional soldier who'll tell me they look up to me, either literally because I'm 7 feet tall, or figuratively because I played in the NBA,” Plumlee said in 2017. “It’s just so backwards for me, because I look up to them.”

His brothers may have had the more successful NBA careers, but it is quite clear who's the boss now.
