appearing on”good Morning America,” Moore announced his decision to call it quits here:
Well, I guess it’s time to move on to the pro basketball life. I left four seasons ago, but wanted to officially retire. This is such a lovely time for us and our family. The work we have done I want to continue this in my next chapter. Be home to my community and family. … That’s what I’m moving into. To hang it
