    I'd settle for AD potential, at this point.

    No, he doesn't. At all.

    That said, he's got AD potential, and that's not bad.

    He's got good footwork and some dreamshake-like moves no doubt, but he's not a defensive, shot-blocking or rebounding force (yet, because the tools are there to be great).

    25 a game and he blcks shots. 4.games of his scoring is no fluke. 25 was a lot for Dream

    No, come on. Not even close in terms of defense.
    He’s been as good as I hoped though. Actually, better. I’m thrilled.

    If Wood keeps this up, Morey is going to send him an iPad right before he signs his extension here.

    You have to understand body types, physical capabilities and instincts to understand that this is incredibly silly, and the AD comp is also sillly.

    Wood doesn’t have the body to be that type of player, he’s way too thin. (Nor the defensive instincts/quickness/footwork).

    Wood will likely be a very nice borderline all star who’s will have huge offensive nights that show flashes of stardom, but he will also have too many nights where he gets exposed on D, where he runs into a defense/defender that’s to physical for him to have his way with.

    Dream quadruple doubled with blocks. Multiple games with double block totals. We’re ecstatic if Wood has 4. Wood is a different player. Half his points are off threes. Dreams points all came in the paint. The rules on defenses and hand checking were much more physical back then. It was tough to rebound and tough to play down low in the post. Game is soft now in comparison.

    Wood has some talent. I’ll give you that. I hope for the organization at some point you are mentioning their names in the same sentence. I see a really good young player. I don’t see Dream.
