Calm down dude. I have a different opinion than you. No need for patronizing people with different opinions.
According to FIBA's website, Gielo and Olynyk have never even played each other in an official game. If he really did dominate a guy who is likely going to be picked in the lottery of this year's draft then this guy should enter the draft as soon as he can and I wouldn't mind the Cats/Hornets to give him a look. But I digress.
As for Olynyk being a top 3 player in the NCAA, he had the highest PER in the country, was top 10 in several advanced statistics categories, and was a First-Team All- American.
I don't understand your comments on being "absolutely dominated" in the NCAA tournament either. He posted 21 points and 10 rebounds and 26 points and 9 rebounds in his two games. If that is your understanding of being "absolutely dominated" then that makes me a little bit less worried about your friend "dominating" Olynyk too.
Should have stated that his team was dominated, the scores didn't indicate it but each game the Zags played... well they didn't look to good and Olynyk was the beneficiary of that as he had no one to match up with him until he got to Wichita State.
Also you obviously know the international game is different from the American game. You can be a very good player on the international stage but be a piss poor NBA player (Sean May)
I guess we'lljust have to agree to disagree, I don't see his game transferring well...
He is a finesse player, plays below the rim, not very quick, isn't really that athletic, struggles against dominsnt post players, and isn't the most polished defensive player (i.e. shot blocker).
I believe most have him compared to Spencer Hawes.
I'd rather land that number one pick and take Noel.
