Christian Wood discusses Luka Doncic and his unique playstyle
Chrisitan Wood is emerging as a legitimate talented big man in the NBA. He is 27 years old and listed at 6 ft 10in. His size allows him to be an excellent rebounder and finisher at the rim. Wood averaged 14 points and 7 rebounds so far in his career. He developed furthermore this year and is currently averaging 17.3 points and 8.4 rebounds. Additionally, he is also shooting an efficient 58% from the field and 47% from the three-point line.The Dallas Mavericks roster was interviewed on media day. There, they were all asked what they considered to be the most annoying trait or habit displayed by Luka Doncic when on the basketball court. Here is what Wood had to say when asked the same question.
“I would say it’s a good annoying, I would just speak on the court-wise. I would just say if a play is working once or twice, he’s gonna keep running that same play until it’s just annoying you and annoying you until you have to figure out… until your defense has to figure out how to stop it. So obviously that’s one of the most annoying things.Quite the amusing reveal by the NBA star. We all knew that Doncic had an excellent basketball IQ. However, the confidence to run the same play over and over again, believing the opposing team and coach will not read into it, requires an unreal level of confidence.
We hope that Chrisitan Wood is soon able to understand how to play better alongside Doncic. If they manage to get things clicking, an NBA title is the only real ceiling for this talented Mavericks team.
