View Full Version : Like it or not, Bulls fans were 100% incorrect about omer asik

Completely and totally wrong about this guy, he's a defensive anchor capable of double digit rebounding, and decent shot blocking and certainly can play over 30mpg

When he left bulls fans said he was over priced, couldn't last an entire game and would foul out of by half time.

Throughout these first few games I think he's show he's more than capable of the task, and also happens to make less than noah while providing more defensive impact and simular rebounding

While obviously noah is better for the bulls now, because they are a balanced scoring team and noah is obviously the better offensive player, asik would have been the way to go still in my book

I would have tried to move noah for a 2 guard in the offseason, but what's done is done

Asik has proven to be a starting nba center, and the bulls have proven to still be the same regular season winning team that can't get to the nba finals due to a lack of a legitimate #2 option, even though their fans will make up excuses about injuries during their first year hurt chemistry, which is the reason they won one game vs Miami while derrick rose shot 30% from the field

And offer even more excuses as to why an 8th seed team was able to beat a 1st seed team just because a player that had been missing for big stretches during the season had once again been out

All in all, asik has proven to be the guy, while making less than asik this season, and the bulls should have traded noah for a piece and kept the Legendary Asik

Noah is a better scorer, passer, defender, and has a greater intangible effect on the game with his hustle and passion. Both are great rebounders.

The key thing is whether Noah can stay healthy which was the only factor as I see it in the Noah vs. Asik discussion. If both guys are healthy Noah @ 12M > Asik @ 8M.

I missed Omer Asik right as soon as the contract was announced. I knew the Bulls couldn't keep him, but I never talked bad about him going to Houston.

Which Bulls fans said he isn't capable of being a double digit rebounder and a great defender?

But I have a feeling this is a dupe account by someone who has been banned.

Also while Omer might give you similar impact defensively as Noah, Omer gives you NOTHING offensively. He is still extremely raw.

He gives more defensive impact than Noah. But I agree, his offensive game is SUCH a liability that I don't blame the Bulls' preference for Noah.

wasnt really bulls fans per se that "disrespected" omer. in fact, most bulls fans i talked to about the signing were upset he had to leave.

his d is dare i say elite (constnatly frustrated dwight last year), and he will pull down a ton of boards (had 19 last night, 15 tonight)...he still needs to work on his offensive game thoguh.


still, for 8 mil a year ill take great d and great rebounding.

Mr. GM, tell me who you would trade for then? FYI...the Thunder only won one game against Miami, and they had three legitimate options.

I didnt realize that Omer Asik was that good. He is going to average 11-12rpg. However, Chicago was still right for NOT matching. For a backup center, his 15 million during the last season would have killed them in luxury taxes.

This thread should have never been made.... Joakim Noah is definitely better than Asik. He has two great rebounding games which he should! He can't score worth the lick, which was frustrating as a Bulls fan but we loved his defense and boards. The Rockets happen to overrate that and sign him to a ridiculous contract, that we can't afford to pay and shouldn't for a backup. I am glad he is getting his shot as a starter but he wasn't going to lead the Bulls to the promise land and certainly won't be the reason the Rockets get there! Close this please and ban this fella!

as a Bulls fan, i loved the Turkish Hammer. he has tremendous upside as a defensive player and he was excelling in Thibs' system and would have continued to do so. the fact is that Noah is a better all around player, and he is no scrub on defense. Noah can hang with the best of them when it comes to his defense and effort.

and when it comes down to the money, we already have a ton of money invested into the front court, and with the contract Asik was offered, it was not worth it and i still believe that. i do miss him though

No Bulls fan wanted Omer to leave, but the Bulls weren't going to pay both him and Noah over 10 mil in year 3 of his contract.

I don't really get this thread TBH.

Most Bulls fans already knew he was a great defensive C that can only score if it's a dunk or uncontested layup. How does his performance through 3 games change that?

It's not like we chose to stick with a turd of a C over him. Noah's not as good defensively, but overall he's the better player.

Bulls didn't screw up on this one.

Given the backloaded contract, and that they had 2 other centers, they made a reasonable decision.

Also, right now the other 2 centers are a BETTER fit than Asik.

Asik being a beast rebounder fits any team, but on a line lacking offensive options, he doesn't fit as well as a player with some offensive skills like Noah.

Bulls made the right choice.

Now, if you have a team with too many offensive options, then Asik is an almost perfect fit....

I was referring mostly to Noah in terms of people wanting to trade Noah and keep Asik.

For the back up C position, Nasr makes alot more sense than Asik, especially with the apron restricting roster moves.

We are hardly playing Nazr ATM which means more Noah and Taj at the 5 or Boozer don't know don't care since they are both the same height. From what I saw in preseason, Nazr can actually shoot the ball and was pretty good rebounding as well. He won't come in play lock down D like Asik did but at least we have someone that will foul hard.

Omer is quite possibly the best defensive center in the NBA. No Bulls fan said he was anything but a stud defensively and none said he couldn't rebound. The man is completely worthless offensively. That's, I'm pretty sure, all anyone said.

JasonJohnHorn
11-04-2012, 01:22 PM
I don't remember Bulls fans dissing Asik at all. I remember them saying they wished they could have kept him. lol

Houston signed him to a poison-pill contract. The final year he will be making a $#!Tload of money and Chi-town didn't want a pay roll that high. Houston did the same thing with Lin and NY responded the same way as Chicago.

Check out this for an explanation of the "poison pill contract".
http://www.denverstiffs.com/2012/7/6/3141613/explaining-the-nba-poison-pill-contracts-of-omer-asik-others

Chi-town ownership and fans wanted to keep Asik. The owenrship just couldn't afford to be paying four players 15 million at the end of Asik's contract.

I think if you ask any Bulls fan they would rather have Asik that Nzar, but they just understand that that contract was too rich. Is Nzar a better deal, dollar for dollar? Maybe, maybe not. What's clear is that Asik has a bigger impact on the game and I think Bulls fans will all agree to that.

This is how Toronto signed Fields and how Houston signed Lin and Asik.

Acually Asik is the better defender. Synergy numbers have him being a better post defender which is critical for any center. I agree with Noah having a better offensive game but he is nowhere close to the defensive ability of Asik.
