NBA PLAYER ANTHONY TOLLIVER REFERENCE

My name is Anthony Tolliver and I have played in the NBA for 14 years for several teams but currently with the Philadelphia 76ers. During my career I served 8 years as an Executive Committee member of the National Basketball Players Association. First role was Vice President then later I was elected Secretary-Treasurer. In these positions I had the opportunity to strengthen the union and amplify the voice of many NBA players over the years.

I have known Coach Derrick Washington for over 10+ years now. I originally met him in Minnesota at the shared practice facility for the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Minnesota Lynx. I was playing basketball at the time for the Timberwolves and Coach Washington was assisting the women’s team with their practices. I continuously saw him work after hours with players and it made an impression on me. A few years later I reconnected with him and he became my personal development coach. During those seasons I accomplished some career numbers and I definitely give Coach Washington credit for his hard work in the gym with me. He was always on time and never missed a day in the years working together. Coach Washington also took advantage of opportunities to learn from the best coaches on the planet by attending several NBA practices with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Sacramento Kings, Detroit Pistons, and the Atlanta Hawks to name a few.

Derrick Washington has developed a distinguished reputation in the basketball community. He is without a doubt internationally recognized for his coaching skill set, his networking abilities, and his personality. I believe that in 10 years or less Coach Derrick Washington will be coaching on the big stage. Whether that be top level Europe, Australia, WNBA, or NBA he is destined for greatness in the coaching field. His work ethic, basketball knowledge, passion for the game, along with his personality, will win over any GM or manager looking for a great young, upcoming Coach.

Derrick is also one of the most selfless people I have met. Since I have known him he has consistently given back to the communities that he lives in. Not only passing down basketball knowledge but also general life knowledge to the next generation. Any club that decides to put their trust in him will benefit tremendously by having a Coach of Derricks caliber. He will be able to help develop the next generation of basketball players with advanced strategy and skills. I’m sure he will also continue his grass roots approach to developing a great community wherever he is living. Coach Derrick Washington will be an asset to any basketball organization around the world.
