Watch Mason Plumlee ask strangers in New York for their autographs

The title pretty much says it all: This is a short, funny video of Mason Plumlee asking strangers in New York for their autographs.

Per Sports Illustrated, which made the video:

Being that he’s new to New York (and the NBA), Mason was able to navigate the area largely without interruption, save for the occasional chirp from a Dukie or particularly devoted Nets fan. That made him just a random dude asking other people for autographs—albeit a random dude who’s 6’11.

Okay, it may not be as great as Matt Harvey's video on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, but it's still good. Then again, Matt Harvey isn't 6-foot-11.
