Before you accuse Olynyk of "dirty" play, read the timelines of @MalikRose and @Rick Fox, two veterans of the NBA rebounding trenches.

Kelly Olynyk on Kevin Love’s accusation of intentionally injuring him: ‘That’s ridiculous’ dlvr.it/9Z4vkB

Joe Vardon

So what, precisely, were Olynyk's intentions?Look at his left hand!?!?!?! http://t.co/WFlJ6CURXd

Kelly Olynyk: I would never intentionally hurt Love or anyone else sportando.com/en/usa/nba/159…

Ben Rohrbach

Olynyk/Love play fairly simple: It was a dirty play; he didn't intentionally hurt him, but it wasn't clean. No sense debating any further.

La jugada de la polémica: Olynyk lesiona el hombro de Kevin Love. ¿A propósito? youtu.be/ZZ31539Cg04 Vosotros diréis.

Kelly Olynyk holding Kevin Love's injured arm though is just plain cold blooded! WhewLawd twitter.com/NBAonTNT/statu…

Chris Fedor

Oh my goodness!! The Celtics Gone Fishin on TNT had Kelly Olynyk holding Kevin Love's arm. These guys man...

Jay King

TNT's "gone fishing" for the Celtics had pirate Kelly Olynyk holding Kevin Love's arm: http://t.co/9MsinYeZ4o

Tom Halzack

Love Wojo. Like Kevin Love. But...premature and IMHO, illogical that Olynyk incident would influence Love's FA decision making

Rick Noland

not defending olynyk by ANY means. in real time, that sequence took about 1.5 seconds. HORRIBLE result, but intentional dislocation? no

Rick Noland

agree with Shaq! Olynyk tried to tangle up Love, but did not try to dislocate shoulder. but still bad for Cavs, cuz it happened

Rick Noland

Charles says what Kendrick and JR did was worse than what olynyk did

Rick Noland

olynyk might get a game, but it will be 1st of 82. does no good for cavs

Jay King

Also, @Mark Murphy reported that Olynyk has tried -- unsuccessfully, so far -- to reach out to Love.

Jay King

Did Olynyk's foul hurt Boston's chances of landing Kevin Love? masslive.com/celtics/index.…

Brian Robb

Strong denial from Kelly Olynyk via @Mark Murphy on Kevin Love's accusations. bostonherald.com/sports/celtics…

Jay King

My man @Mark Murphy got the story. Olynyk denies trying to hurt Love, says "That's ridiculous." bostonherald.com/sports/celtics…

Jay King

Even if Olynyk meant to pull Love, a ridiculous stretch to think he planned to yank the arm out of its socket or cause injury in any way.

Jay King

Olynyk is the guy who responded to Hassan Whiteside's cheap shot by saying Whiteside is "a good human being" and wishing Whiteside the best.

Sean Highkin

Can't decide what would be funnier: Love leaving the Cavs after they traded Wiggins for him or if Olynyk actually blew the Celtics' shot.

Adrian Wojnarowski

Column: For months, Boston has quietly gathered momentum as free agent destination for Kevin Love. Olynyk blow it? yhoo.it/1Jum91D

Jason Lloyd

Kevin Love believes Olynyk's act was intentional, J.R. Smith 'nervous as hell' he could be punished: BOSTON:... bit.ly/1bIyZeU

Chris Fedor

I think Kelly Olynyk did his training at the Cobra Kai dojo. #FinishHim

Brian Robb

Kevin Love rips Kelly Olynyk for his "bush league" foul. http://t.co/2vb4pD45YJ

Jason Lloyd

Another look at Love/Olynyk. Appears Olynyk's left hand was wrapped around Love's forearm/wrist while he was pulling http://t.co/2q5g30wOhK

Michael Lee

Don't think Kelly Olynyk meant to seriously hurt Kevin Love, but KL has a right to be upset http://t.co/UajACtCWUL (h/t @Thatknicker)

Brian Robb

Evan Turner comes to Kelly Olynyk's defense on Love injury. Says he can't box out anyone. http://t.co/Gse4KjNeey

Adam Himmelsbach

Kevin Love on Kelly Olynyk causing injury: "I thought it was a bush-league play...I have no doubt in my mind that he did that on purpose."

Chris Forsberg

Turner defends Olynyk: "Kelly doesn’t have a mean bone in his body… With a star player it looks bad, but Kelly’s not that type of dude."

Jay King

Blatt on whether Olynyk's play was dirty: "I don't think it's in the character of Olynyk to do that, but I hope not."

Geoff Lepper

Kelly Olynyk committed a dirty, dirty basketball move. J.R. Smith committed battery.

Chris Fedor

Not once have I said I agree w/ any of what is being said about the Love-Olynyk play. I'm passing along info. Ur welcome for that. Relax.

Stefan Bondy

It was a dirty, unnecessary and indefensible move from Kelly Olynyk.

Jay King

MT @Scott Souza: Evan Turner: Olynyk wasn't being malicious. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body. He just can't box out to save his life

Chris Fedor

Doug Collins on Love-Olynyk play and Love's comments: “I think (Love) spoke out of emotion. I don’t think it was an intentional play."

Mark Murphy

Love said he has no doubt Olynyk was trying to hurt him. Evan Turner: "Nah, that's just the way Kelly boxes out."

Chris Fedor

Jalen Rose on Love-Olynyk play: "I don’t think it was premeditated. There’s a lot of grappling that takes place in basketball games."

Zach Lowe

Tougher to suss out the Olynyk play in real time, but he didn't exactly let go in a timely fashion. That arm-bar stuff can get dangerous.

Andrew Perna

LeBron, Love essentially labeling Olynyk a goon after the shoulder injury. When are we going to stop stereotyping Canadians?
