The Legend of Kelly Olynyk grows in Orlando

It’s been said that from Kelly Olynyk’s flowing, golden locks comes an aura that can heal the sick. Actually, I’m the only one who said that, but what’s another wildly ridiculous overreaction to the “O’Klynyk” he’s been putting on here in Orlando.  And while we’re all having fun with the hyperbole while watching Olynyk’s play against a bunch of non-NBA competition...

Your Morning Dump… Where Jeff Green is ready to lead

Fighting fatigue becomes latest teachable moment for young Celtics

Kelly Olynyk paused when he was asked if he recalled the last time he played four games in four days.  He gazed towards the ceiling as he flipped through his memories.  And then he shrugged and said “I don’t know.” In their latest “Welcome to the NBA” moment, this contingent of wanna-be Celtics struggled through long stretches of their game against the Houston Rockets...

Dirk Nowitzki, I mean Kelly Olynyk, scores 21 points as Celtics beat Pacers in summer league

The title is a joke people. Kelly Olynyk isn't Dirk Nowitzki, despite the fact that there are some resemblances in their games. It's an unfair comparison for Olynyk to be compared to one of the best players of this generation before he's played in a single pre-season game. No one in league history has has more of an unstoppable fadeaway than Nowitzki, and that shot...

Kelly Olynyk Applies Professionalism in His Rookie Summer League Appearances

Jeff Green, Jared Sullinger, Courtney Lee Reject ‘Rebuilding’ Talk With Celtics
