Olynyk is being talked about as a NPOY guy.
Where would you rank him among B1G big guys?
He's just so ugly I find it hard to respect him.
Anthony Davis says that ugly players never pan out.
Oh, and Fuck off, Nucky!
I remember Olynyk when he was a freshman at Gonzaga. He was a baby-faced bean pole who stood around the perimeter and jacked 3s. Two years later he transformed into one of the best bigs in the country. Haven't seen an overhaul like that in a long time.
"RCMB: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainry." - some dude from MgoBlog
Kelly Olynyk is caucasian and ugly, please name an ugly white dude who panned out? Adam Morrison hahahah.
That Larry Bird guy was pretty good.
He was rather good looking NTTIAWWT. Also way to go back to the seventie./80's My favorite non African American basketball players of all time are Drazen Petrovic, Pistol Pete, Kevin Mchale, and Kevin Love.

He'd probably be up there. He's good.
Cody "Little Bitch" Zeller and the Payne/Nix combo would make him work much more than anyone in his conference though. Hell, even that white boy from Illinois and Aaron White would make him work more than anyone in his conference.
Second behind Payne. He's ridiculously skilled for a 7-foot guy. Great footwork, passes, cuts to the basket, runs the floor, shoots 3s. He's good. Zeller does maybe two of those things and just hopes to get fouled when he receives the ball in the paint.

If based on looks, Olynyk should be NPOY...in women's basketball. His appearance is more befitting a lesbian Pat Summit desciple more than John Wooden's.
thought the same thing .... then learned that he's growing his hair out for cancer patients. Oooops. Mug is still not attractive, but that's not a pre-requisite to be a big in the NBA. What MIGHT be a pre-requisite is strength, though. He's pretty fast, athletic, and has a good shot and great footwork. But I think the bigs in the B1G would move hiim around at will...
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
In the words of Colonel Jessup, "aren't I the fuckin asshole". Interesting info.
Good player no doubt. Agree as well that he does not play as tough as you need for the Big Ten rigors. I'd like to see him match up with Mbakwe, Zeller, Payne/Nix, McJesus on consecutive nights and see how he fares.
