Olynyk leads All-Rookie second team

Kelly “Yes I’m STILL Calling Him King Slender” Olynyk has just been named to the NBA All-Rookie second team.  In fact, he was the leading vote-getter for the second team.   Here’s how the second team voting shook out:

Player   Team First (2 pt) Second (1 Pt) Total  
Kelly Olynyk Boston 19 81 119
Giannis Antetokounmpo Milwaukee 15 86 116
Gorgui Dieng Minnesota 21 54 96
Cody Zeller Charlotte 3 61 67
Steven Adams OKC 9 47 65

Kind of interesting that  after all the talk about the “Greek Freak,” Olynyk ended up with more overall points than him in the All Rookie voting.

Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo, Trey Burke, Miles Plumlee, and Tim Hardaway, Jr. made the first team.

Phil Pressey ended up getting 2 votes.  Nicely done.

    Literally everyone else on the second team placed higher (or significantly higher) than Olynyk for the Rookie of the Year voting. What gives? I think some guys that didn’t make either team even beat him out.

    Danny once again finding value in a weak draft

    Very Nice. I would like to see this kid in green for a long time.

    Was THJ that good? KO should’ve been first team.

    • Curt Hays

      He changed his team for the better. For real.

        Interesting. I didn’t know he had such a good season. Thought it was NY hype.

      He can’t play a lick of defense, but he’s a scorer
