You know what I like is when, instead of showing game action, the networks that show NBA games have a camera on some vapid sideline reporter talking about useless crap that no one cares about.
I LOVE that.
In case you’re confused, I just used the tried-and-true literary technique called “sarcasm”. I actually don’t like the sideline reporters at all. Funny, huh? Anyway, we should consider ourselves lucky that they cut back just in time to show Kelly Olynyk’s second NBA three.
This is the first game that I would consider a “good” game by him. He shot 7 of 9, had 5 assists, and grabbed 7 boards. Now that he’s comfortable shooting the open J, I’d really like to see the Celtics post him up more. I love watching a good old-fashioned up and under. The new-fashioned “shoot threes until your arms fall off” can be fun, but I like variety.
Variety is the seasoning of our existence, after all.
