Kelly Olynyk checks in with another entry in his Rookie Diary and today he's at Madison Park gym to put on a basketball clinic. 

"It’s important for us to get out here and help these kids learn what it means to work hard, what it means to practice," says Olynyk. "[It's important to] help them get excited about getting better, not only in the game of basketball but bettering themselves everyday and being the best them that they can be." 

It was hard to tell who was having more fun, Olynyk or the kids.

The Celtics rookie offered basketball tips and lessons about hard work.

"No matter how good you are," Olynyk tells the kids, "if you’re the best player in the world, you can still be that much better. You can still practice. You can still get better."

That's good advice on and off the court.
