Dillon Brooks Credits Raptors Training Technology For His Improved Shooting

It's quite the irony. One of the worst shooting teams in the NBA the past couple of years, the Toronto Raptors, are being credited with helping the shot of Canadian Dillon Brooks in his sizzling performance at the just-concluded FIBA World Cup. 

Brooks credits the "Noah Analytics" technology with helping him work on his shot, by tracking the arc of each shot.  

"In Toronto, they got this machine that helps you with your arc and I just had that number in my head every single time," said Brooks, who nailed a game-high 39 points, and hit on 7-of-8  three-pointers, in leading Canada to a Bronze Medal win over the USA at the World Cup on Sunday.

Which, of course, prompted Raptors fans and media to hilariously wonder:

And while Brooks will take his newfound shooting form to the Houston Rockets this season, lone Canadian team will try to fix up their own shooting woes. 

The Raptors finished 3rd-last overall in shooting in the NBA last season, 3rd-last in three-pointers above the break, and 4th-last in corner threes. 

Maybe this revelation by Brooks will get some Toronto players to take the Noah technology more seriously?
