Meet Mrs. Alene Olynyk; she is the beautiful, loving, and proud mother of NBA player Kelly Olynyk. Her boy is the 7’0” Canadian power forward player for the Boston Celtics. Prior to the NBA, Kelly played college basketball with the Gonzaga Bulldogs at Gonzaga University.
No doubt you Celtics fans know plenty about Olynyk; but for those of you who are curious about this talented young man, let me tell you the following facts.
The first thing you need to know is that he was born on April 19, 1991, in Toronto, Ontario; to Ken and Arlene Olynyk, also proud parents of Kelly’s pretty sisters Jesse and Maya.
He first attended at South Kamloops High School; subsequently committed to Gonzaga. He played at Gonzaga until his junior year, after that the Dallas Mavericks selected him in the first round (13th overall) in the 2013 NBA Draft. He never got to play in Dallas though. Instead, the Mavericks traded him to the Celtics right after they selected him for two future second-round picks and the rights of Lucas Nogueira.
