B- Omer Asik's defense is excellent. The problem is Houston's defense as a whole has been terrible due to the pace, making his numbers appear worse. When isolated to just his defensive skill set they are much better. He has dominated as a rebounder becoming 3rd in defensive rebound rate and 3rd in defensive rebounding %. If we didn't have Shittie *** Morris and Patterson ****ing up at the 4 with their retched defense and piss poor rebounding he'd look better.
AND C. Motiejunas hasn't had the opportunity to play. Mostly because we're paying Patterson and Morris a hell of a lot more money AND we're trying to showcase them for a trade. He will have his time and he will shine mark my words. I have followed this guy since he was 16 years old, even seeing him play in person in Europe.
Now as far as Parsons goes, he is probably the best trade piece we have. He's good but he DEFINITELY is expendable. He will be traded I can almost guarantee you that. He is just a cog, nothing that makes you say wow. He is an above average player, that's it. Comparing him to the players of the same draft is silly. Compare him to other NBA players Yes he measures up, he is above average. But let's not pretend this guy is our 3 of the future, especially if we can get a Josh Smith or a REAL superstar.
