The first good impressions of Christian Wood in Dallas

Like Damian Lillard and many other league players, Christian Wood also gives his time to budding basketball players. ” I was once that little kid who looked up to NBA players and hoped they’d sign my shoe or meet them in person. With children, I can be myself and become a child again. So it’s nice “, testifies the interior during its passage to the camp of the academy of the Mavs.

Arrived two weeks ago in Dallas, the interested party, who was able to meet a few teammates in training, spoke for the first time to the local press since his transfer, announced in mid-June.

His first feeling? ” Tiredness ! All this time I’ve been in the gym and pushed myself to exhaustion “, describes the player who says he appreciates a city of Dallas ” a little quieter than Houston, thank goodness! »

The interior knows it is expected next year, more than with the Pistons and then the Rockets, the two teams with which it has changed status in the big league. Mavs executives saw in him the “ missing piece of the workforce, which has just reached the conference final.

A player who, after failing to establish himself as a leader among the young Rockets, will this time have to behave like one of the first lieutenants, if not the first, of Luka Doncic.

Especially since he is coming to the end of his contract next summer and will be aiming for a salary increase ($ 14 million this season). “ It’s a great opportunity for me and for this franchise to try and take the next step. I want to win games. My main goal is to try to reach the Finals “, Ends the one who has never played a playoff game, or even played in a team with a positive balance sheet (apart from a brief stint at the Bucks in 2018). The ambitions of the Mavs will change it.
