#5 – Kelly Olynyk Ends Kevin Love’s Playoffs
Boston Celtics forward and product of Kamloops, BC Kelly Olynyk ended Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Kevin Love’s playoffs when the two got tangled up fighting for a rebound in Game 4 of the Celtics and Cavaliers first round playoff matchup last spring. Love was not impressed with Olynyk, calling it a “dirty play”. The injury to Love may have cost Cleveland an NBA title, as the Cavs lost in the Finals to the Golden State Warriors with Love and fellow All-Star Kyrie Irving also sidelined, leaving LeBron James all on his lonesome facing the mighty Warriors.
