Whenever I see Ersan Ilyasova play, my mind is filled with questions: “Has this guy ever been outside? Why does he look like he fell into a vat of off-white paint? Is he a mole-person? Is that why his real name is Arsen Ilyasov?” The jury’s still out on the mole-person thing, but one thing we know for sure is that the Ersanator can sometimes be a total beast. Take this game versus the Failblazers. He scores 27 points, hits all three of his deep balls, and even gets some assists.
New hypothesis: Ersan loaded up with liters of potato vodka = good. Ersan sober = bad.
