Watching Klay Thompson shoot is a treat for anyone to witness.

That means he’s the perfect candidate to lead the way for rookie Moses Moody, who was selected by the Warriors with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. Moody himself joked he needs to step up his game after watching Klay shoot some threes.

“I’ve got some work to do,” Moody said Tuesday morning on 95.7 The Game’s “The Morning Roast.”

Don't we all.

If Moody is able to improve on his already impressive three-point shot while being able to learn from Klay and Steph Curry, then the Warriors will be thrilled.

"Man, (Klay's shot) looks different in person, that was obviously my first time seeing it," Moody said in late August on "The Jim Rome Show."

"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."

Moody said recently he’s looking forward to working with Klay, as the Splash Brother is someone he’s watched over the years during the Warriors’ dynastic run. Moody even said he sees similarities between their games.

The moment Moody was drafted, analysts said he would fit in perfectly with the Warriors’ free-flowing offense.

During his time through Summer League, the Arkansas product showcased his smooth jumper but knows he still has a lot of room to grow. Still, the talent is there. 

 

Moody's shooting was one of his touted skills heading into the draft, so his plan simply is to perfect it as the season progresses.

Studying Klay isn't a bad start.
