Every year, NBA fans are treated to an array of photographs that, without fail, put the future stars of tomorrow in embarrassing and absurd situations. This year, the Celtics obviously factored this reality into their draft-day decision-making. Kelly Olynyk has all the makings of a true contender for goofiest rookie photo shoot pictures ever.

Last year, we were treated with Fab Melo breaking a folding chair while waiting to audition for the Celtics Dance Team. I canít wait to hear about the funniest behind the scenes moments from this years photo shoot but until then enjoy how I assume Kelly Olynykís session went:

Looking forward to seeing KO in person when Boston plays the Trailblazers in Portland on January 11th.

Go Bulldogs!

he pictures taken at the NBA's Rookie Premier photo shoot were goofy enough, but what if we took them to another level?

The Rookie Premier is a place for the league's youngest players to show up in their uniform and take a bunch of goofy photos that will be blog fodder for all eternity. What could make all this even weirder? Photoshop, of course!

Take this picture of Kelly Olynyk doing a scissor kick in the clouds. Absurd? Of course. But what if ...

Kelly Olynyk was riding a unicorn!

If you look at the comments, they posted a picture of Kelly for folks to do their own photoshopping. Are you there, WooHoo?
