I have grown to HATE how Christian Wood plays basketball.

    I doubt it has anything to do with him not practicing FT’s. It’s totally in his head now. Why not give him a try at SF and let Sengun be the starting center. But wait, it might work and we would screw ourselves for top 5. Never mind.

    I understand why a chick would leave him on draft night. Talks confidently but inwardly he's a diva level b!tch. He's not a guy you can consistently depend on. He really wants to pad stats but he has to add strength to his frame to consistently to that.

    I actually would be ok with trading Gary bird also if I get the right deal. Would be awesome if we could flip something like a Gordon for a 1st and use that first along with Brooklyn's first l, add wood and Matthews for a Zion

    Somehow this is the guy that’s preventing me seeing more Sengun.

    I've been saying this for a while now. He's not a Center. He plays better when he's on the perimeter, due to his body type. Plus he guards well on the perimeter too, so why not put him out there.

    Because he is being out muscled, he looks out of place at times.

    He plays best offense when he is a 5, best defense when he is not. I can't wait to trade him;.

    Zion wants New York. Do that deal for someone you know doesn’t have their heart already set on a specific destination

    Legitimate laughter ensued after reading this Tweet because I’ve been wondering this all season long. If he can’t guard centers he’s not a damn center to me. He’s a PF. And if he’s not as effective on offense as a PF too damn bad. Get him out of here. This man offers no basket protection or rim deterrence whatsoever and is constantly out of proper guarding position because of a lack of awareness and poor defensive instincts.

    It's not just his defense though. He has such a terrible attitude on the court. Everytime he's in the post he calls for the ball really aggressively. Actually everytime he's remotely open (even when he's not) he starts clapping his hands or waving them around demanding the ball. How do you play offense with a guy who is doing that almost every possession? It's ridiculous.

    Didn't know that. You are right, I am tired of having players that don't want to be here

    Exactly. I’m just not sure what you do with that. He’s a good scorer, and if he would hit his free throws he could be a very good scorer as a stretch 5, but he’s not strong enough to defend anyone inside. I think his game needs to evolve. I know he wants to be a center, but he’s just too much of a liability there. He’s not a 3 or a 4, but he’s going to need to learn how to adapt and become one if he can’t get stronger, and I just don’t think his body type is going to let him do it. The dude is legit one of the most frustrating players I’ve ever watched.

    Starting Wood at the 5 and then having Tate guard all the 5s... curious if Wood is embarrassed by that? (he should be)

    Easily Top 5 least favorite Rockets to watch all time

    At this point he’s my top 1...surpassing this year’s iteration of Danuel House.

    When he was playing with Harden, and even before his ankle sprain last year, Wood was fun to watch. Or maybe I just hadn’t caught on to how much of a negative he really is and was just fascinated with a shiny new player. But it’s clear that Wood is all flash and no substance. No fun to play with or to watch play. And ****, even his flash has lost its luster to me.

    If we don’t get rid of him this off-season, or if we make a draft pick based on the fit with Wood, I would be apoplectic

    To come along with the same stupid face, both are also delusional about their importance on their teams.
