These Kelly Olynyk fake handoffs are getting out of control. Do these dumbass NBA players not even watch film? It’s like his only move, it’s the only way he can do anything, and these meatballs are still letting him do it. Kyle O’Quinn, you need to take a good hard look at yourself and remind yourself that you’re an NBA player. Not some random at the park. Have some self respect, and up your game, because you got torched by some hippie-looking dude.
Worst of all was the nutmeg. I don’t know where that term came from, all I know is that you can snort nutmeg and get a really messed up high, but that’s beside the point, but Olynyk totally nutmegged O’Quinn on that pass to Richardson for a dunk. Sorry I didn’t show a replay, but if your mind is creative enough to imagine the ball going straight through O’Quinn’s legs while his bearded face twists itself into a grimace of confusion, you’ll be fine.
This is Olynyk’s first game with double-digit assists, obviously, because prior to this season he hadn’t shown a whole ton in the way of playmaking ability. Some of these assists suck, lame pitchbacks to Wayne Ellington, but they are actually about as good as the average Nikola Jokic 10-dime game. Maybe a little better. If that doesn’t make you want to watch this vid, I don’t know what will.
