HoopsHype Sir Mix-A-Lot rumors

January 20, 2014 Updates

Kelly Olynyk was both surprised and excited when told he has drawn the interest of the legendary Sir Mix-A-Lot. After the rookie’s 25-point, seven-assist game against the Lakers, Mix (we call him Mix) tweeted, “Hey @BillWalton does @KellyOlynyk remind you of anybody? Long hair, smart player, fundamentally sound. . . . I’m just saying.” “It’s pretty cool,” Olynyk said yesterday. “I mean, you don’t realize all the people that are noticing you. It’s kind of interesting — especially from a guy like him where you’ve heard a lot of his music. It’s pretty cool.” Boston Herald
