Moody says Klay's jumper looks 'different in person'

Warriors

Moses Moody has watched plenty of Warriors games featuring Klay Thompson over the years, but the lottery pick said it was a unique experience to see the Splash Brother shoot in person.

"Man, it looks different in person, that was obviously my first time seeing it," Moody said on "The Jim Rome Show" on Thursday. "But watching that repetition, that exact same shot every one, I mean I sat there and watched him shoot for 20 minutes, and it didn't touch the rim a lot, I can tell you that."

Thompson steadily has ramped up his activity level this offseason as he prepares to hopefully return sometime in the early part of the 2021-22 season after two years away from the court due to lower-body injuries.

Moody was a solid 3-point shooter himself in his lone season at Arkansas, making 35.8 percent of his attempts from behind the arc. In four Las Vegas Summer League games, Moody connected on 37 percent of his 3-pointers.

The Warriors rookie hopes to utilize his defensive intensity and offensive skill set to earn time in a rotation that hopes to be contending for a championship after two seasons without a playoff appearance.

Dub Nation has to be quite jealous of Moody, as fans have been clamoring to see Thompson's signature jump shot in a real game since his last appearance on the court in June 2019.
