Stephen Curry Moses Moody Warriors


Stephen Curry and Moses Moody of the Golden State Warriors scored a high of five against the LA Clippers.

It took Moses Moody a minute of temper to start his first year with the Golden State Warriors. The 20-year-old didn’t hit double-digit minutes in consecutive games until mid-December. And, at that particular time, he was averaging just 1.9 points per game and shooting 33.3% away.

By the end of the year, however, Dubs’ other rookie made it clear why team president Bob Myers chose him to finish 14th in the 2021 NBA Draft.

In six games spanning February/March, Moody averaged 12.2 points in less than 23 minutes per game and shot 58.7% from the pitch (and 50% from the deep). Then, in the Warriors’ post-season, he found himself pushed through to the grand finals while the club awaited the return of Gary Payton II. For the most part, he also acquitted himself.

However, in the second year, Moody doesn’t want to be just a fill-in or a trash-time hero. Instead, he has designs that drive his development to the point where the team trusts him to deliver in the moments that matter most.

Even if the team signs Donte DiVincenzo to help make up for Payton’s loss, Moody’s still thinks there will be a good time to play next season. Finally, he had some idea of ​​how he would increase his efficiency with the increased minutes.

“Mainly, I’m thinking about getting off the screen, getting off the pin,” Moody told The Athletic’s Anthony Slater of expanding his offensive output. “Slick serves. Take down such shots. I want to be a better shooter than standing still, but also having to move. “

Nor did he focus solely on one side of the court.

“Right now, I feel like a good defender,” said Moody. “I use my length. I use my size. Reaction ability. All. But I want to cause more havoc. Now, you really can’t get past me. But I want to speed you up. I want to mess with the ball. Gets you out of it. Increase pressure. I want to add that intensity to my defence.”

While Moody’s getting more detailed in his approach to game improvement this summer, he’s also being mindful of the bigger picture. The former Arkansas celebrity expressed to Slater that he is confident in his ability to “go there.” [and do what he does]”But he doesn’t want to be just another guy on the ring.

Instead, he’s looking to do the following:

Try to win another championship. Try to benefit yourself. Make it to the point that if I’m in the game, it’s not because someone likes me. It’s not about helping me. I want to be needed. I want you to think ‘I need Moses on the floor.’ That’s on me. I had to turn that into a script.
