With 65 regular season games now under his belt - and five more remaining - Kelly Olynyk has had plenty of time to experience everything that goes into being a professional basketball player. However, it wasn't until Monday night that he got his very first shot at an off-court endorsement that was in no way connected to the Boston Celtics.
Olynyk spent the evening shooting a commercial (two or three actually) for Roster Stores at their location in the Natick Mall. Roster, which sells both apparel and memorabilia for all four major Boston sports teams, had Kelly sporting a couple of different outfits they put together from their gear in the store, each being directly related to the theme of the commercial. For instance, one of the themes was old-time hockey. So there was KO, standing tall, dressed in a Ray Borque hoodie and covering his long hair with a Boston Bruins snapback hat - backwards of course.
Kelly also filmed a Red Sox themed commercial that will be very similar to the one he did in his Bruins attire.
Overall, Olynyk handled everything like he had been there and done that. But perhaps what was most impressive was his willingness to offer ideas and suggestions that he thought would make the commercial that much better.
Kelly's commercials will most likely be airing on NESN during Red Sox and Bruins games with there potentially being a new one made for the 2014-15 Celtics season.
Unfortunately, due to team policy, Kelly was unable to answer any questions or comment on either the season or what he thought about the commercial making process.
