There is no animosity between Olynyk and the organization, only positive feelings because of that deep bond. “I’ve always been good with Coach Stevens,” he said. “First and foremost, Coach Stevens is one of the greatest people I’ve ever met in the world. Top to bottom. Good day, bad day. Sunday. Monday. Tuesday. Seven days a week, 24 hours a day, he’s an unbelievable human being. It doesn’t matter what situation is thrown at him, what the circumstances are, win, loss, he is one of the greatest human beings I’ve ever come across in my life.”
Erik Spoelstra said he wants to play Hassan Whiteside alonside Kelly Olynyk some in preseason. “They will have the ability to play together,” Spoelstra said. “How much will depend. Their games are so different. Their skill sets complement each other.” Whiteside is intrigued, saying Olynyk is “a really good passer. He can space the floor. He’s physical. So it’s going to be good.”
Oubre, 21, has played two seasons in the NBA and isn’t a starter on the Wizards, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t targeted by opposing fans. He of course found himself as the center of attention at TD Garden this spring when the Wizards were battling the Celtics in the playoffs. Oubre was suspended for Game 5 after he was ejected for pushing Kelly Olynyk to the ground. Oubre was then greeted by chants of ‘f*** you, Oubre’ by thousands of screaming New Englanders. “Boston is definitely probably the worst. Me and K.O. had our little party. We had a good time. Boston is definitely the most interesting, but everywhere you hear a lot of stuff, honestly,” Oubre said.
