    yes, I agree with Mr. Clutch. "God bless you."

    but is it ah-sheek or "ah-sheik" or "ah-sheikh"?

    All I know is that any blocked shot and I'm yelling: "YOU GOT TURKED!"

    The layup drills we have had against us for the past few years will be non-existent to minimal with Asik. Guy has unbelievable length and speed for a big man.

    Morey needs to be commended for this pickup.

    If the Bulls announcers already did Asik and Destroy, Bullard will need an original tagline.

    "Asik and Ye Shall Dunk!"

    He dunks like a young Shaq.

    Don't mention Shaq please. Guy can dunk, but it is pretty much all he can do on offense. It isn't look good.

    After seeing that I would like to now officially "flip-flop" back to the AH-sheek bandwagon please.

    He didn't get dunked on, why do people all over the internet post videos when a guy drives past someone or just dunks from the baseline and just because someone is standing there, they say he got dunked on? Asik tried to go for the block but he was still not in Westbrooks line of drive. It doesn't even matter, at least he tried.

    Even though Asik is not really getting dunked on, what is so wrong with that play? He made an attempt to block Westbrook and had to pull back his hand because he couldn't make a play.

    I also wonder what is the point of these type of posts/ For instance, Yao got dunked on several times throughout his career. Would you take a healthy Yao still on this team today? These type of posts just come off weak, knee-jerk, and silly.

    Weak critique of Ashik!

    he certainly dunks really well, and the timing on blocks without body contact is impressive, missed in all the dunking is he get into a good position really well and reacts to the helping and shifting D, his rolling off the pnr is pretty good and subtle, his hands on the catching are great when he wants to keep the ball high, which should bode well for a probing Lin

    the only question mark for me is most of the highlights all seem to come at the end of the 1st Q and start of the 2nd quarter, my worry is foul trouble versus starters, but he certainly has some nice upside and damn he plays fricken hard

    He dunks with authority none of that "namby pamby" stuff .... The Rockts havent had a guy who dunked like that since ..... damn its been a while.


    Man Bullard is awful ..... No Gene Peterson , no Jim Foley and now no Bill Worrell. Im not looking forward to the broadcasters this season. It could get ugly.

    I'd rather him try to make a play than step out of the way to avoid getting embarrassed. The team is greater than the individual.
