Ersan Ilyasova Named Eastern Conference Player of the Week

From the NBA press release:

Ilyasova led the Bucks to a 3-1 week, including wins over the 76ers and Knicks. Ilyasova averaged 25.0 points while shooting .638 from the field, .900 from the foul line, and .667 from distance, to go along with 10.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Ilyasova posted three point-rebound double-doubles, including a 31-point, 12-rebound effort to close the week in a 105-99 win over the Raptors on March 11.

If the Bucks had visions of trading Ilyasova, then this past month could not have turned out finer.  Not only is Ersan the player of the week, but if you take the period from mid-February to now, he has been one of the NBA’s best. Period.
