Newly-minted Hall of Fame point guard Steve Nash is trying to bring his legendary basketball knowledge to the palm of your hand. During Apple’s press conference debuting the new series of iPhones this fall, Nash came out on the stage to demonstrate a new application called “HomeCourt”.

The application uses artificial intelligence to track individual workouts. However, with the new iPhone Xs camera, it can record shot release time, angle, speed, and height of release. It will also show the number of makes and misses, perhaps the most important statistic to track.
“HomeCourt is giving players immediate feedback to help them understand if they are practicing with the right form,” Nash said during the event. “Release time is also a great indicator of whether the player is shooting at game speed while staying low. These meaningful insights and feedback just weren’t possible before.”
Nash, along with Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, point guard Jeremy Lin, and former Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie are all investors in the application and is currently being used by major college basketball programs.
