Okur's having a career season, but it doesn't mean he'd be performing like this under other circumstances. Look at his career stats. Rebounding? Good. Scoring? Eh, decent. His %'s tell the whole story. He's never shot this well in his career, which means he'll plumet sooner or later. Good seasons happen, but it doesn't instantly mean that the player is "very good". Okur's numbers will stabilize next year.
This is Okur's furth season only........... he has never got so much court time............ shooting like he has his whole career, just has the opportunity to take more shots.
It took time for other big guys to develop and play well eg. Jermaine O'neal. Many players took time to develop into stars and productive players - Payton, Kemp, Billups, Garnett......... No way is this a fluke by Mehmet Okur! He is doing what he is doing, with the majority of the defense focussed on him, especially when AK was injured for so long, because he has the skills and ability!!!!
