    Coming out of college and now, he has always been knocked for his motor and intensity.

    Also, his court awareness is incredibly low. All the physical tools in the world, but to put in bluntly, his basketball brain is essentially the exact opposite of Larry Bird's. I have seen him numerous times in SL with extremely high hopes. He reminds me a lot of Sean Williams.

    Thanks for the info. I had heard that but I figured his level of production outweighted the negatives.

    Funny you mention Sean Williams. I'm read the undoing project by Micheal Lewis and the whole first chapter is about Morey and they have a two page discussion about Sean.

    Did you know he is the half brother of Myles Garret?

    Truthfully, I'd love to let John Lucas and Dream get their paws on CWood, because I think If someone simplified the game for him (Let him play a pick and roll backup Center) he could be a useful player. He is still so young and sooooooo ideal as a physical specimen. Get his ass motivated!

    Yeah man Sean Williams is so damn elusive. That said, Eddie Griffin will always be the king of what ifs, imo. When it comes to natural talent, SHEESH that guy was a freak. Sad, sad story.

    He's a better fit for Rockets than Tarik Black.

    Think so?

    Including locker room impact? Tarik Black (If nothing else) is a fantastic person, hard worker and a great and happy guy to have around our team. A positive influence which is tough to find in a decent 3rd string C. Christian Wood requires a baby sitter. You willing to risk that with a championship level roster?

    I don’t know man.

    Bro if millions of dollars can't get him motivated nothing can get him motivated.

    His age doesn't really matter if he doesn't have passion for bball no amount of external pressure will make him motivated look at Larry Sanders.

    Sometimes 22 year olds just haven't figured **** out man. His time is running out, but he still has a little time.

    Its not about figuring **** out its about taking his job a bit seriously lol. With his talent he should be a locked for an NBA roster and making millions every year but if he is not motivated I dont want him on the team because there is always a chance he will pull a Larry Sanders and leave after getting his money.
