Zack Plushpaw is an American professional basketball player who most recently played for the Lorain Firestorm of the Furry Basketball Association (FBA). Plushpaw is a guard from Calumet, Michigan who played collegiate basketball for Florida Everglade. In 2013 he was ranked #5 in the Draft Combine and was selected by the Santa Ana Spectrums in the first round of the 2013 FBA Draft.


Growing up in the North, a creature needs to know how to bide their time turning the long winter months. Some turn to a winter sport, like skiing or snowboarding, some take up a hobby, like writing or drinking. Zack Plushpaw took up basketball to bide the time. For a normal creature, this would mean hitting up the local gymnasium. For this pine marten, it meant going out early winter mornings, shoveling off the driveway, and practicing dribbling techniques.

This may be the main reason for his rock-steady motions on the court. When a creature knows how to handle a basketball in the ice and snow, a climate-controlled basketball court is a cake walk.

Zack's cold-weather experience relates to his nature, too. Zack is known as a cool competitor with a very dry sense of humor on the court. He relishes in the fact that no beast likes getting shown up by someone nicknamed the "Plush".

Despite going down to Florida for college, he's kept in touch with his Northern roots, occasionally doing reps in the college cafeteria walk-in freezer or just keeping an ice pack in his paws while on the bench.
