Kelly Olynyk plays better with a man bun, according to the cold, hard sports stats

Kids Sean Smith Jersey Basketball is all about the numbers: points per game, scoring percentage, assists — the list goes on and on. But now, for newly signed Miami Heat forward Kelly Olynyk, we may have the most important statistical breakdown of all — which hairstyle does he play best with?

Kids George Fant Jersey That’s right — during the 2016-2017 season, Olynyk outscored, rebounded, and assisted his headband-rocking self while playing with a man bun. This isn’t a style opinion — no, these are cold, hard sports statistics. You can’t argue with the numbers.

So when Olynyk starts playing in Miami, let’s hope he stays cool in the heat (ha) and decides to wear the man bun all the time — because not only will he be cooler and look cooler, but he’ll play better too.

We’re presenting our NBA free agent rankings somewhat differently this year. We pulled together a list of the top 50 free agents overall, then sorted them by position. (We listed them in the position they played the most last season, according to Basketball-Reference’s play-by-play data.) As such, we don’t have an overall top 50 ranking, or even a top 10 for each position.

Needless to say, with such shaky options outside of the marquee stars, this is all rather subjective. Some players not listed in these rankings could easily be better fits for specific teams’ situations than the players listed. We’ll leave those decisions up to the general managers.

The first night of NBA free agency didn’t disappoint. Besides the usual allotment of big-money contracts to stars and role players alike, the Paul George sweepstakes came to a swift end when the Pacers traded him to the Thunder for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis. That left other teams (*cough Celtics cough*) out in the cold wondering why the Pacers settled for an inferior offer to theirs.
