I know there's another thread as well, but this is just a comments thread for the article. Asik has stuck out to me the last couple of days and I spent Wednesday asking players/coaches what they thought of Asik so far. Here's video of their thoughts.

Thanks Clutch. I am starting to understand Omer a lot better. He is adorable. Love that guy, I followed him actively in Chicago & I said that he would be a beast from day 1. Glad to know that I was right.

If Morey was right, that if you extrapolate Asik's numbers out to starters minutes he is virtually identical to Ben Wallace in his prime, then this will be a very, VERY good signing.

how is Omer compared to Tyson Chandler?

sorry, only followed Lin and hence NBA for a short period, and Tyson is the only Center benchmark I can use.

He isn't as athletic is Chandler in terms of jumping ability, but there is potential for him to have a similar defensive impact.

In terms of defensive impact Asik is already on par with Tyson.

Here Asik #1 fan. But again, its easy to look well when you have absolutely no opposition in front of you. Let's see how he looks against NBA starting centers.

Maybe Asik might be the sleeper Free Agent signing of the year.

With Omer Wallace and Chauncy Linups, maybe we can have a pistons like run into the playoffs?

Oh god. Even if you are being sarcastic, please do not make a Detroit Pistons to Houston Rockets debate.

Omer is the hinge on which our whole season swings. I agree with lottery pick ruiner.

That was great. On the flopping rule:

"I don't know too much."

Not his game.
