Interactive Basketball Training App is a Game Changer

CHARLOTTE, Aug. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- If you ask Dell Curry what his greatest accomplishment is, you might expect to hear about his NBA Sixth-Man of the Year Award or the fact that he's the Charlotte Hornets all-time leading scorer. But he'll tell you that his greatest accomplishment has little to do with his NBA career. In fact, he claims his greatest accomplishment is being a father.

Dell Curry is the founder of Jump Shot Genie, an interactive basketball training app that uses technology and professional coaches to helps players improve their shooting. Dell Curry was a 16-year NBA All-Star and the father of current NBA players Steph Curry and Seth Curry.

Like any typical family, Dell Curry and his two sons Steph and Seth would spend hours playing basketball in their driveway. The two young boys would imitate their father's every move. Under Dell's guidance and instruction, the two boys developed their own shot, which led them in their father's footsteps and paved the way for their own NBA careers.

"I realized something early on, they could practice 800 shots a day, but if they were practicing the wrong shooting technique or form, they were just practicing to be bad shooters," said Dell Curry. "So, I started working with them on their shots. It is important for all young shooters to have the proper coaching early on. It sets the foundation for their success."

Coupled with Dell's 16-year NBA career and raising two sharp shooters of his own, Jump Shot Genie was born. The basketball training tool uses innovative technology to give players of all skill levels access to their very own professional coach, right at their fingertips. Dell hopes this will empower the players of tomorrow to learn the right shooting techniques early on in their careers.

"I go to shooting clinics all over the country, and it is very common to see young players shooting with poor form," said Dell Curry. "That's why we've created Jump Shot Genie - to help players develop the correct shooting habits and motivate them to become better players."

Jump Shot Genie allows players to record and submit their shots from a smartphone or tablet. From there, they will be assigned a personal coach who will provide a detailed shot analysis using voiceover, freeze frame, split-screen and slow motion. Using Dell's exclusive 18-point grading system that reviews all aspects of the shot, their coach provides feedback and shares video drills to help them correct their mistakes.

"Even as a former NBA player, I had my challenges helping my sons train," said Dell Curry. "It can be difficult for parents to know what techniques are the correct ones to teach their child - Jump Shot Genie removes all of their guesswork. Parents can be confident that their child is getting the very best instruction and training from a reputable coach."

The Jump Shot Genie App is available for download in the App Store (iOS), on Google Play (Android) or on www.jumpshotgenie.com.
