    Tbh - really pleased with the fit of Okynk. Reminds me a bit of Otis Thorpe in a weird way.

    Olynyk vs Oladipo since being traded:

    PLAYER | MPG | PTS | 2P% | 3P% | FT% | REB | AST | STL | BLK | TO | + / - | DURABILITY
    OLYNYK | 28.8 | 17.4 | 59.7 | 41.7 | 95.5 | 7.0 | 3.0 | 1.1 | 1.0 | 1.7 | + 0.4 | Healthy
    OLADIPO | 27.8 | 12.0 | 37.2 | 23.5 | 66.7 | 3.5 | 3.5 | 1.8 | 0.5 | 3.5 | - 3.5 | Injured

    I think that pretty well sums it up.

    Stone with a mini victory. Got Avery Bradley and 2022 Swap Rights for Brooklyn's Pick. Right now the trade looks good enough with just an Olynyk for Oladipo trade straight up.

    Good on you Stone!

    Let's turn it to Porter--Olynyk--Wood (POW) when Wall get's his knee scoped (hopefully soon).

    Kidding aside, I believe Kelly O has exceeded all of our expectations--certainly mine. He's a much more diverse player than I imagined. The solid post up game, defensive rebounding tenacity and court vision/passing have been a very nice surprise. Besides that the dude is a team player. I vote we resign him, need vets like this to help the rebuild.

    always liked his game but call me up when he beats up DMO in the threads count department

    to be fair lets first see if he can get at least half the threads DMO did

    I had the same thought but I think he will sustain this level of play because of Silas’s coaching style in Dallas with big men.

    Why don't we compare Olynyk stats to Hardens instead of Oladipo considering he's the only real player we got back in the Harden trade...

    Not sure, but Kelly is beasting non the less, 18 rebounds!

    That's more than Godzilla and Kong combined in their last two games.

    Stone with the epic win again while all the idiots on here and in the media were laughing.

    Imagine if mia has to lose players in order to resign Oladipo in the offseason, helps our swap next year even more. Brilliant.
