Courtside billboard gets the best of Kelly Olynyk

By most accounts, especially this one [1], Kelly Olynyk‘s footwork still needs improvement.

While Olynyk thankfully avoided the same fate Paul George suffered in a Team USA scrimmage last week, the Celtics [2] big man found his foot in a bit of trouble a couple days later during Canada’s friendly against Serbia in Italy.

After getting his right foot stuck in a courtside billboard, Olynyk’s only injury was a bruised ego. He finished with 11 points (5-11 FG), nine rebounds and four assists in 22 minutes of a 78-73 loss. The Serbians will be among the 24 teams competing when the FIBA Basketball World Cup [3] begins later this month. Canada did not qualify.
