I don't know if anyone has been paying attention but since Sullinger got injured for Boston Olynyk has been seeing a major increase in minutes and the results for the past three games go like this:

GM1-25pts (11-23) 12rbs 3 asts
GM2-28pts (10-19) 9rbs 3 asts
GM3-24pts (10-16) 7rbs 5 asts

Pretty amazing considering scouts completely slept on him for most of college you couldn't even find him on a mock draft until late in his last college year. How good can this guy be in the future?

3 game sample size... Biggest steal in the draft? Cmon

He's nice. Should've been taken earlier no doubt.

Right now, Mason Plumlee probably. Olynyk was taken about where he was expected to. He'll be a very good player. Boston definitely chose wisely with him.

Archie Goodwin, next season, should turn some heads too

very weak draft he definitely could be if he improves his d.

Olynyk has a pretty shot. Might become a shorter version of Dirk. He needs to work on his defense and overall awareness during games, though. At least that's what I saw during the draft combine.

I'd say MCW, plumlee and hardway Jr first then KO ... steal of draft wise

They're actually both 7ft.

I think anything decent over like 10 in that pathetic draft is a steal.

I expected him to win rookie of the year, after what I saw from him in the summer.
he was a bit of a let down but the talent is there clearly.
hopefully next year he will shine.

I drafted him on one of my fantasy teams. Thought he'd be a sleeper. Seemed like the front-court for Boston was wide open. Then when he had trouble beating out guys like Faverani, Bass, and Kris Humphries for minutes I had to cut bait. The scoring potential seems to be there. He definitely has range on his jumpshot. And his per 36 numbers are pretty enticing:

16ppg/9rpg/3apg on 47%/35%/81% (55%ts) but with 6 fouls per game per 36.

Obviously has to improve defensively. It will be interesting to see what Boston does with their lottery pick. They could go a lot of different ways.

He's a good player. I envision a long career for him

And Dirk is one of the greatest players to ever step on the floor. Slow down...
