    Asik is averaging 17REB in 31MPG the last 3 Games

    Thats an insane rebound rate


    Here are some quotes from 2 articles on him:
    http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/chairman-boards
    http://www.nba.com/rockets/news/trials-perspiration

    “It’s huge,” says Jeremy Lin of Asik’s relentless rebounding efforts. “You look at his plus-minus and things like that; he affects the floor (in so many ways) getting defensive rebounds and all that stuff – when he’s not in the game we’re definitely hurting on the glass. He’s big time.”
    “He came up to me one day and said, ‘Coach Kel, I’m a great example of why, if you just play hard and care about winning, good things will happen. I come from a team where I averaged three points and five rebounds and only played 14 minutes per game. But I got a good contract because we were winning.’

    “Omer is so team-oriented at all times. He just wants to help his team win games and he knew for him that was defense and defensive rebounding. There are some guys who are stat hounds that are all tied to selfish reasons. But defensive rebounding is such a team-builder. There’s nobody on our team that has an individual strength as good as Omer except for maybe James Harden at getting to the free throw line.
    “He’s never been an offensive player,” Dawson says. “That’s a major hurdle when you’re his age. He’s 26 and you’ve got to get this in his instincts. But the way he’s so enthusiastic makes him really fun to work with. He’s a hard worker, he wants it, he picks it up well.

    “I have never seen how much power this kid’s got. I’ve been behind some of the best, from Moses Malone to Olajuwon to Yao, and you can’t move this kid. He’s 295, 7-foot and he’s strong as an ox. He can get on the floor and help us defensively already. He doesn’t have to be a great offensive player. He just has to handle the situations that come to him. If he does that, he’ll be a big plus for the Rockets.”


    Thoughts on his season? I was hoping all those who vehemently denied his talent/production could come in here and admit their faults.
    Yo Kobe, get at me bro, we'd have a good time, man

    I'll admit I was wrong about him... I thought Houston was ******** for giving him that contract

    I was wrong too. I thought the advanced stats that backed him last year were misleading. This guy is nasty...wish the Raps got him

    Okafor averaging 14 rpg in just 30.7 mpg in the last 8 games. Not too shabby himself.

    Asik's a piece a offensively rich contender would kill for.

    Is he finally starting to come on? Ever since that LA series I was wondering if he would become a regular rotation caliber player but his stats were hideous to start the year.

    So? I may be highlighting 3 games but its about his entire season. Hes getting better with every game and hes actually better offensively than I thought he would be.
    Still feel free to name the last time someone had a rebound rate this high in 3 games. Unless you would rather see more threads about LAL/MIA, what exactly is wrong with bringing attention to players around the league?

    His TS% has risen every month as well. Do you think Washington should/could unload him on a contender?
