Omer Asik looks thrilled to be benched (GIF)

Houston Rockets center Omer Asik wanted out of Texas as soon as they signed Dwight Howard. Asik has asked for a trade and was benched tonight. Asik looks less than thrilled to be sitting on the bench. There is a GIF of him below staring off into space like an angry teenager.

Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle says his benching has more to do with his effort than trade requests.

    It takes extraordinary character to gracefully respond with disrespect and put downs. Jeremy Lin responded with flying colors when he got benched. Asik is sulking like a teenager. Imagine how Asik would react if he scored back-to-back 30 plus points and he’s benched. Lin is Top 10 PG in the NBA right now in points per game, field goal percentage, and points per shot. He’s still being disrespected by McHale with his Jeremy is 6th-man lie.
