There are a lot of dudes in the NBA with awful facial hair. Sometimes, it’s just not meant to be, but they see the Hardens and Goodens of the league and decide they want a piece of the action. They don’t care that their chin-growth is patchy, uneven, or doesn’t achieve full coverage. They want the facial hair, and they don’t want to wait.
I’m willing to bet that hair only really grows on the part of Kelly Olynyk’s chin where it already is. See how the beard doesn’t extend up his face at all but stays confined to the under-chin area? It’s a classic neckbeard, folks, even if it slightly more well-kept than the usual. It might seem weird to complain about Olynyk’s repulsive pube-beard (pubeard) when he’s on a team with Tyler Johnson on it (proud owner of the league’s most disgusting neckbeard ever since Gallinari shaved his off), but I can’t stay silent. He’s had this thing for a long time now, and I get that you want to avoid looking like a girl by growing a little something extra to go with the flowing locks, but god damn. The thing is transparent.
