After Paul George recently got his foot caught under a basket stanchion during a scrimmage in Las Vegas last week, the case for creating additional open space on the baseline in basketball has been gaining support. Celtics forward Kelly Olynyk, who is playing for Team Canada this summer, had his own baseline issue in an international friendly against Serbia on Monday. Thankfully for Olynyk, the situation wasn’t nearly as serious as George’s injury, but after chasing a loose ball out of bounds, the seven-footer did find his right foot stuck in a courtside billboard.

The legend of his tresses began when Olynyk was attending Gonzaga University. He lived with two soccer fans who got him watching European games. Olynyk noticed a Spanish player, Sergio Ramos, who sported long hair held back with a headband during matches. The college student was inspired. “I saw Sergio Ramos’ hair and all these other European soccer players,” Olynyk explained. “They wore a little band and had it (their hair) behind their ears. I liked how it looked and I wanted to try it out, so I just started growing it. Part of it was because I’ve never gotten my hair cut in the USA. I always had it cut in Canada.” Basketball Insiders

Olynyk doesn’t have a specific reason for Canadian-only salon visits. It’s just something he does, part of his no-explanation-necessary mentality. “(Long hair is) kind of against the social norm, I guess. I just like the flow,” he said. “It’s just kind of part of my style now.” Basketball Insiders
