What is Omer Asikís ceiling?
Iím not sure any of us really know but just based on his last four games itís obvious how much his game has grown. In that brief span he has 3 double doubles. In Asikís last four games his stat line is pretty damn good.

Code:
PPG	13.25
RPG	12
FG%	0.459
FT%	0.826
FTA/G	5.75
No one is ever going to confuse Omer for Hakeem but in todayís NBA thatís pretty damn good. Add to the fact that Asik is the premier defender in the league at the center position outside of maybe Dwight Howard or Tyson Chandler and itís more than just a lot of empty stats. This is Asikís first time starting and his first time to get 30+ minutes a night and the man is just a beast. No serious foul troubles, no stamina issues and if he is this good this early in the season when most of us probably thought it would take quite a bit of time for him to adjust to being a starter, then how good will he be in January or February once he becomes accustomed to catching the ball under the basket night in and night out?

James Harden is clearly our key acquisition of the off-season but without a doubt in my mind is that Omer Asik may be the surprise of the season and just as important of an acquisition down the road. I know itís just 4 games and in the next 4 he might only average 5PPG and 50% FT shooting but I think as hard as the guy works he is only going to get better and better on the offensive end under the basket and at the charity stripe.

If he just continues to work I donít think itís a stretch to imagine him putting up 15 points a night with 12 Ė 13 rebounds and elite level defense, and if he does that then he is all-star quality.

I think he can be a Turkish Tyson Chandler, which is pretty good if he develops a decent enough offensive game

Good thread.

I'll be very happy with 10 pts, 12 rebs, 2 blks, much-improved FG % (something like .500 for a C), decent FT % (.700+) and still solid defense.

Basically like a Tyson Chandler with less hops and worse FG %, but maybe even more hustle.

I wouldn't expect him to score a whole lot of points all the time, if that comes at the expense of his energy level on defense. Just enough to contribute and keep the defense honest.

I really like his hustle and to me, he is the most positive surprise of the season so far.

more than 10 ft of clearance that's for sure.

(insert clyde drexler laugh)


I've been impressed with the improvement on his shooting form. If he continues to work, and by all accounts he is awesome at working hard, then 15 and 13 is an obtainable goal by next season.

I think he could easily be a double double 15 pt and 15 rebound a game kind of guy. Id be cautiously optimistic that he could do any better just because hes not a guy you really run the offense through. Completely honest though the points and rebounds arent what impress me the most about the guy. I think his defense is impeccable and the fact that he hasnt been in foul trouble yet. That is what really astounds me about Asik.

chandler does a lot of intangibles.so does omer. i'm saying poor because of asik's offensive abilities ,not because of defensive abilities

and scrub is in the eye of beholder

Omer Asik has been DMorey's Luis Scola...a guy pretty obscure, who will end up getting better over time...Defensively he is already a stud(mind everyone that this is really like his 15th game ever starting) and is doing an excellent job...Offensively he is still raw...and that can always improve b/c this is a kid who wants to learn...he is only gonna get better...

I love his penchant for reverse lay ups and finger rolls. He's developing his own offensive style and flair.

Yeah that is probably the the biggest surprise to me because I fully expected him to fight foul trouble.

It looks like the Rockets are trying to get him used to catching the ball in pick and roll situations with him going to the basket. Obviously in his first few games he had serious trouble holding on to the ball but he is obviously doing much better at finishing the play or drawing the foul at this point. Like most I would like him to finish with a dunk more often but I am assuming he is just trying to use the moves he practiced with Carol Dawson in the off season.

Wasn't Luis Scola Morey's Luis Scola?
