Default Kelly Olynyk 100% ROY

Are we really going to act like Kelly Olynyk isn't going to win the ROY. His post moves are better than 90 percent of the centers already in the league. He can run the floor and that shooting touch! Him and rondo will be an amazing Tandem. I know his defense is a little weak but I am sure he will improve over the next few years.

Ish who would you compare his game to?

A bigger Luis Scola. Probably might be even better.

If he was so good then why didn't OKC draft him? They've made pretty much the correct pick with every draft pick since taking KD.

Dude isn't strong enough to bang in the post. Many PG's put up more reps than the guy. He has a short wingspan. Is a bad defender. With his lack of athleticism he's not going to have much success unless he can perfect his footwork and develop a Dirk like one footer to compensate for that.

Just too many question marks with him. Steven Adams will be a boss in 2-3 years. 10/10/2 type of guy

I think he could be a great 3rd option playing off of a scoring wing and a decent PG.

The answer is Cody Zeller.

And as far as who Olynyk compares to, probably some tall white guy because he's a tall white guy.

Don't get me wrong I do think his athleticism is weak. His footwork isn't perfect but It's better than the majority of centers in the NBA. He's also going to be able to take majority of them off the dribble. His defence is bad but I am sure he will adapt and find a way to compete. Will go back to this thread in a few years and see who is better between them and Steven Adams

Reminds me of Chris Kaman when he was on the Clips. Kind of. Just with a better jump shot. And because they're white.

McLemore has no shot, Thornton will play the majority of min's at SG and he will have a hard time if he has to play SF. He will have big games but he won't be anywhere near consistent in terms of playing time and production like Zeller/Kelly and some others imo.
