The Warriors’ victory tour continues to roll this summer, as each player on Golden State’s championship roster exults in the success of last season.
And on Wednesday, it was Moses Moody that felt the love. He earned the key to the city of Little Rock, Arkansas, Moody’s hometown. The city’s mayor, Frank Scott, Jr., presented Moody with the key while Moody participated in AR Kids Read, a local youth reading program.
That’s gotta be a special moment for Moody. At just 20 years old, he’s already experienced a lot as an NBA player, on and off the court.
As for the upcoming campaign, the plan for Moody is to have more time for fun on the court than a season ago. Though Moody contributed in the NBA Playoffs, he played as much as one might expect for a rookie on a loaded squad, logging 11.7 minutes per game in 52 appearances.
But in 2022-23, general manager Bob Myers expects Moody to get regular rotation minutes. The same goes for Moody’s young and talented teammates, Jonathan Kuminga and James Wiseman.
Team goals remain the same, however, and that’s to win another NBA championship. Moody, along with Kuminga and Wiseman, have learned a lot from the Warriors’ veterans, and now they’ll be right beside Stephen Curry, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson as Golden State attempt to make history yet again — and have another sweet, celebratory summer.
