Kelly Olynyk dunks like Tom Chambers, why wasn't it a technical foul?
I remember Tom Chambers used to throw down two-handed double-pump dunks from time to time (unfortunately I can't find one on YouTube so you'll just have to take my word for it, but here's his jam that ranks among the greatest ever). To the surprise of many, last night Kelly Olynyk pulled off a similar maneuver:
Allegedly the NBA has a rule that says you're not allowed to hang on the rim unless it's for safety reasons (although I'm fairly certain the league just eliminated it without telling anybody). As you can see in the pic above, there wasn't anybody close to Kelly as he did a chin-up and swung his legs in the air.
Technical foul, right?
