Last season’s center, Omer Asik, started with this season’s center, Howard, and the Rockets were very good at doing what they do, defend the paint and rebound, and very bad at everything else. ...

Omer Asik airballs free throw; Kevin McHale has great reaction (Video)

Like many other big men across the NBA, Omer Asik is not a good free throw shooter. The Houston Rockets center has hit just 60% of his free throws this season, which is an improvement upon his career mark of 54%. I’m pretty sure the worst free throw of Asik’s career came on Tuesday night […]

Revolting Free Throw Air-Ball by Omer Asik

I’ve always been fascinated by NBA big mean who can’t manage a free throw. It is FREE after all. Professional basketball players with low free throw shooting percentages astonish me. In the real world you’d be in deep **** if you could only complete 30% of the easiest tasks on your slate. At any rate, it seems Houston’s center Omer Asik managed to put up a short-and-to-the...

Rockets Glad To Still Have Omer Asik

The Houston Rockets were unable to find a worthy trade for Omer Asik to balance their roster and instead kept him as an insurance policy. Howard will have missed two straight games on Thursday with a strained left ankle. Asik has been working with Hakeem Olajuwon on his footwork on offense.
