Moses Moody layup

The Warriors selected Moses Moody with the No. 14 overall pick in last month's NBA draft.

A viral moment ensued shortly thereafter:

Moody joined ESPN's show "The Jump" on Tuesday afternoon, and the following interaction took place:

Rachel Nichols: "When Perk called your name -- or several versions of your name -- what was your reaction?"

Moody: "[Laughter] It was funny. Everybody was sending it to me. It was a running joke [and it is] still going on."

Perkins: "At the end of the day, you were going to make a household name for yourself anyways. But I think I just added a little spice. Now you're a household name. Everybody knows who Moses Moody is -- even my grandmother."

Moody: "[Laughter] Yeah, for sure."

Moody through two Summer League games is averaging 17.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 25.0 minutes, while shooting 44.4 percent from 3-point range.
