    Wood has a funky shot in the pant, which makes him hard to guard. But could he benefit from learning the Dream Shake?

    He worked with Yao and Dwight. It's only natural that a center that can move similar to him in the post be his next protégé.

    People don’t realize that Hakeem was a top 5 player ever lol. CWood plays nothing like Hakeem and isn’t the next Hakeem but if he could work with him on some post moves and strength training, I think Wood could improve so much

    No.

    Offensively Wood maybe could get to near Hakeem level. Not the foot work but the scoring out put.

    Also I feel Woods game is so different.
    Hakeem apart from maybe Kobe, hasn't really been able to get players to match his footwork. Hakeem had a special feel for the game.

    But defensively he's not even close.
    I can't seem him changing that drastically over a year.

    Remember Hakeem & Russell are acknowledged as the 2 greatest defenders of the modern era.

    Hakeem played volleyball and soccer long before he touched a basketball giving him an incredibly unique perspective on the court. You can’t teach it and it’ll probably never be replicated.

    Food's scoring in Hakeem's. Nobody's in Hakeem league as an all around game but his offense isn't in elite range
