We all know about Charlie Moore’s absurd skills, but a recent piece from the Houston Chronicle (Why Houston?) sheds some light onto Moore’s family life and his connection to his father, Curtis.
"His dad is his light and that was a tragic incident for us what happened. We just wish we could be there to support," Tanya (Charlie’s mother) said, thankful for a trusted Cal coaching staff in Berkeley. "Between work and home, it's a lot right now."
Curtis had a stroke during Labor Day weekend 2015 and has needed extensive rehab therapy in what has already been a long road to recovery.
Moore plays for his proud pop, who also is his longtime coach and still offers the same constant reminders he has since Cal's freshman point guard was about 4 years old beginning to pick up basketball: Stay focused. Stay humble. Don't ever put your head down.
The article is also heavy on compliments and insight from NBA scouts, Coach Cuonzo Martin, and Ivan Rabb.

Congrats to Natalie Coughlin for winning the NFL Celebrity Gold Fantasy Football league—but poor form for having no Cal players!
