The Houston Rockets are currently enjoying a comfortable lead against the overwhelmed New York Knicks, and the Rockets bench is enjoying every minute of it.

Well, almost everyone. 


That is Houston big Omer Asik, and he is pretty much the only Rocket not getting in on the fun tonight. Asik has had a bumpy few last few months in Houston: he has asked to be traded, he has been the subject of multiple trade rumors and he has seen his playing time shrink in recent games.

Perhaps Asik should head on down to Bleecker Street, pop in some Simon and Garfunkel and have himself a good cry.
