The Many (Sad) Faces of Omer Asik

Omer Asik

It seems you can’t go anywhere these days without hearing the name Omer Asik. “Omer Asik this.” “Omer Asik that.” Kids today just love their Omer Asik.

Everyone’s Favorite 7-Foot Tall Basketball Playing Turk™ has been having a rough go of it lately. With the addition of Dwight Howard in the offseason, Asik has seen his minutes dwindle from 30 per game to around 18, while picking up eight DNPs (a mix of Coach’s Decisions and a “Bruised Thigh”). But all of that is about to change. With a move out of Houston seeming imminent, I thought we should take one last look at the many faces of Omer’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad season.
