VIDEO: Sixers rookie Matisse Thybulle eludes Mason Plumlee’s challenge with a double pump poster

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Matisse Thybulle had no plans of getting swatted by Denver Nuggets big man Mason Plumlee. So as he jumped up for the slam, he had to double pump it for the poster finish.

Watch the clip below to see Thybulle’s fantastic slam. Thanks to the rookie’s presence of mind, the potential block turned into a double pump poster and a definite highlight reel material for his young career.

Unsurprisingly, the entire Sixers bench loved Thybulle’s slam.

Notice, too, how Joel Embiid — who was on the floor and was right in front of the carnage when it happened — was so shocked by Matisse Thybulle’s jam that he had to feel his head.
