Ersan Ilyasova has, for many years, been a fine basketball player. A 6-foot-10 power forward for the Atlanta Hawks, Ilyasova was averaging 13.8 points and 5.8 rebounds a game through Thursday. He is a dependable defender and an excellent outside shooter. He even has a cool nickname: Turkish Thunder. But Ilyasova, 29, does one thing better than anyone else in the N.B.A., a specialized skill that often goes unnoticed: He draws charges like a magnet. “He knows exactly where to be,” the Hawks’ first-year guard Malcolm Delaney said. “He’s always in the right place.”
