Rookie Moody reveals funny way he learned to take charges originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Moses Moody‘s willingness as a defender was one of the main reasons the Warriors were thrilled to have the chance to select him No. 14 overall in the 2021 NBA Draft. So far through his time in Summer League and preseason, that defensive intensity has been on display each and every game, taking charges and hustling for steals on a regular basis.

Moody revealed the funny way he learned to take charges while speaking with reporters after the Warriors’ preseason win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

“When I was a kid on my team, I was in sixth grade, my coach, he would give you a dollar every time you get a charge, and I was a businessman so I’m out there trying to make my money. Honestly, that’s really how it started, but ever since then that’s just been a part of my game.

“Even knowing now I got to choose, I got one this game but I know going forward I got to be smart because I might not get those calls early on being a young guy, but just got to figure out the situation and adapt.”

Moody said he ended up making about $20, so clearly he made that an emphasis on defense.

On the offensive end, Moody went 3-3 from behind the 3-point line in just over 10 minutes of action. 

Moody still is just 19 years old and will experience growing pains in his rookie season, but an enthusiasm for doing the dirty work and ability to consistently hit from the outside will go a long way toward earning him playing time in the Warriors’ rotation.
