Every year, NBA fans are treated to an array of photographs that, without fail, put the future stars of tomorrow in embarrassing and absurd situations. This year, the Celtics obviously factored this reality into their draft-day decision-making. Kelly Olynyk has all the makings of a true contender for goofiest rookie photo shoot pictures ever.
Last year, we were treated with Fab Melo breaking a folding chair while waiting to audition for the Celtics Dance Team. I can’t wait to hear about the funniest behind the scenes moments from this years photo shoot but until then enjoy how I assume Kelly Olynyk’s session went:
Photographer: Kelly, act like you’re AirJordaning but instead of a stride, think lamaze class. *snap* And push! *snap**snap* and Breathe! *snap*
Photographer: Okay Kelly, now we’re going to go in a different direction. Imagine this: there’s a fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie only Casey Jones is now infected with the ooze and just starting to glow. Go! *snap**snap* Beautiful!”
Photographer: Kelly, what’s it like to be drafted by the most storied franchise in NBA history?
Kelly Olynyk: This is a basketball.
Kelly Olynyk: That’s ‘OH-LYNN-ICK’ not Oleynik.
Photographer: We have four chances to get this shot right. Think the power of getting your heart ripped out of your chest juxtaposed with the serenity of cumulus clouds.
Kelly Olynyk: Nailed it!
