The Bed-Stuy product played just seven games at Boys High. But his NBA career was substantially longer: 15 seasons as a point guard and 32 as a coach.
After a five-year ABA career, Moe became a coach whose teams were known for their freestyling, run-and-gun ways—fitting for someone who learned the game at Foster Park.
The Hawk led Boys High to two public school titles, the second after dispatching Brooklyn's Wingate (led by future ABA legend Roger Brown) at MSG in front of 11,000 fans.
Raised in Flatbush, the Kangaroo Kid—like Moe—starred at Erasmus Hall and North Carolina. He then became a five-time All-Star and won an NBA title in 1983 as the coach of the Sixers.
One of three Brooklynites on the Lakers' 69-win 1971--72 team (the others were Happy Hairston and Leroy Ellis), the forward averaged 13.8 points over nine NBA seasons.
