Default Omer Asik, most improved player of the year?

Title says it all...do you agree? Might be the best big man nobody is talking about.

While his play might be more so of an increased role, and not so much on the improvement, it's hard not to take notice of this guy capitalizing on his opportunity and running with it.

5 double doubles this year already, and has been a rebound or so shy of having 2 more. Plus, he's straight KILLED it on the glass this year.

Seems worthy of being at least mentioned at this point.

He didn't improve. He was always this good.

He just got more minutes.

Mayo or Jrue right now. Unless I'm missing someone obvious.

Asik is in the conversation, tho. Especially if his scoring picks up like it has been the last couple games.

He's been an integral part of the Bulls' defense and one of the most underrated big men in the league for years. I'm glad that he's being recognized, it was not really a Derrick Rose one man show in Chicago.

I picked him up about 2 rounds early in my fantasy draft, and I'm reaping the benefits. Anyone who saw him play last season knew he'd be good with increased minutes (which he'd get with the Rockets).

I picked him up in my league about a week ago. Glad I did.

I'm hoping Batum enters the conversation at some point (he needs to in order to justify his contract).

Last year to this year:
30.4 to 38.8 minutes (leaving this out would be misleading)
13.9 to 18.8 ppg
4.6 to 6.4 rpg
1.4 to 3.1 apg
1.0 to 2.5 stl

And he is beasting tonight with a new career high in points.

I wanted to post about him...his stats have been crazy...he can sometimes be a bit of a black hole, but he's been great.

I've only seen Marcus Morris a couple of times this season, but he's shown the goods each time.

Asik is definitely in the running. He's actually underpaid. Giving great production.

He shot like 48-49% from the line in his career...this year he's at 73%.
