Moody wore the number 5 on his jersey, and had a role as a shooting guard for the Arkansas Razorbacks. He has an overall score of 93 out of 100. And here is some analysis about his strengths and weaknesses done by senior basketball players, Glen Rice and Robert Covington on the NBA draft website:

“Moses Moody has good size for a wing with a frame that should be able to add strength and muscle … Excellent length with a 7-foot wingspan …Excellent feel for the game – Has instincts that allow him to always seem to be in the right position at the right time … High-level understanding of the game, knows how to create spacing for his teammates and find openings in the defense … Looks to capitalize off defenders’ mistakes … Rebounds the ball well for a guard … Uses jab steps very well to create space and read how defenders are guarding him … Can shoot effectively even with defenders in his area … Uses opponents’ momentum against them to create opportunities for himself by using pump fakes and jab steps … Always on balance – on rare instances where he is off-balance, he can regain his balance before making a move … Plays solid position defense … Shoots the ball well from college and NBA three-point range.”

And here are some of his weaknesses pointed out by these professionals:

“Moody doesn’t play with speed/enough athleticism to create his shots on a routine basis … First step and ability to create offense off the dribble and get to the rim remain a work in progress … May need to rely on team offense and playing with other creators to reach his ceiling … May struggle when NBA athletes crowd him, forcing him to become better at moving without the ball … Lacks explosion, especially on his first step, which allows defenders to stay in front of him with regularity … Many scoring opportunities for him at Arkansas came when they used him as a screener – his team will have to scheme him open to get good looks … May struggle when defending very quick or explosive players that can take angles away from him … Doesn’t create a ton of looks for teammates in the half-court, but part of that was the way Arkansas used him within their offense”

 

Number 3:

Moody was a college athlete. Since he was not an employee of his college, he was not paid. But college athletes do receive free tuition, and a platform to showcase their skills for professional teams. Since the college athletes were not paid, Moses Moody had not earned a penny from his college career. Later, NCAA passed a bill, according to which the college has to pay their athletes; the average basketball salary would be around $500,000, as reported. Since Moody is no longer a college athlete he is not going to be paid. But he still needs some money so he works as an ambassador in a sports agency “KLUTCH”.. Now moody has been drafted to Golden State Warriors and his Salary is going to be a whopping $3,562,080 which is quite good for a rookie. And it only going to be increased every year if his basketball skills continue to improve.

Number 2:

We might think that the only sport that Moody is interested in is basketball but that’s not true. Surprisingly Moody loved football as a kid and would play football all the time. He was part of the football team until 4th grade from there he developed an affection for the Arkansas football team and this became his reason to join the Arkansas basketball team in college time. Here is a clip in which he tells his amazing story of how he developed a love for basketball.

He is often seen posting stories and posts in which he is practicing boxing in a ring. He also visits a gym and that’s a big reason for the athletic body he has today.

Number 1:

Moses Moody was thought to be a top 10 pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and he believed he would be a good fit for the Sacramento Kings and Golden state warriors too. The Kings had the No. 9 pick in Thursday’s draft while the Warriors had No. 7 and 14 pick slots. Moody was high on the wish list of both teams. Moses discussed his pre-draft workout with the warriors. He said:

“I would love to play for the Warriors, honestly, especially being a rookie. It’s just somewhere I could really develop. They develop their guys really well, and it’s almost like a head start just because you’re in this system that works. I feel like that puts you at an advantage just being in this environment and this community.”

Moody was selected by the Golden State Warriors as an 14 overall pick in round 1 of the NBA draft. Here are some moments of his selection:

Moody is compared to Mikal Bridges in terms of his skillset; Mikal is turning into an excellent 3-and-D player for the Phoenix Suns. Bridges being a steady starter broke out in game 2 of the NBA Finals. Without a doubt, Moody can also deliver that type of production. The Warriors chose Jonathan Kuminga as an overall 9th pick. The duo of both young players was preferable for the Warriors. Now, they’re loaded with young talent, with a high ceiling.
