ATHENS, Ala., May 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Anthony Tolliver, NBA veteran who played for the Detroit Pistons during the 2017-2018 season, has joined the Noah Basketball advisory board. Tolliver and Noah Basketball will be working together to forward the company's mission of being used on every basketball court—both professional and non-professional—to assist every player in reaching his or her shooting potential.
John Carter, CEO of Noah Basketball, and Tolliver were introduced in March of 2018 and Tolliver joined the Noah advisory board on May 2, 2018. When Carter and Tolliver met, Carter spent time watching Tolliver shoot and analyzed his data through Noah Basketball's analytics service, Noahlytics.
"Anthony's shot is solid. When looking over his Noah data, I noticed immediately that he shoots the ball very straight, which is the number one indicator of a great shooter," said Carter. "However, I also noticed his trajectory was a bit flat and inconsistent. With feedback from the Noah shooting system, he was able to correct the trajectory in real-time and saw immediate results."
"I got a chance to shoot on Noah for the first time, and it changed the way I started thinking about shooting," said Tolliver. "Down the stretch this season after using Noah, I started playing some of the best basketball of my life."
After using the Noah shooting system, Tolliver went on the most successful shooting streak of his career, shooting 53 percent from the three for his final 15 games of the season. Tolliver also broke the all-time record for the Detroit Pistons single-season three-point shooting percentage.
"[Noah Basketball] took a part in [breaking the Pistons record] because of the way I finished and the way I shot the ball down the stretch in the year. [Noah Basketball] helped me get to a whole new level of confidence that I've never experienced before in my shot," said Tolliver.
"I'm very much looking forward to working with John and the Noah team" said Tolliver. "There are players at every level of basketball that are not reaching their potential and we hope to change that. I could not be more excited about working with this company."
