I asked about player tracking, which is used by several NBA teams to show the continuous movement of players throughout games. This yields the kind of data scale that you see from Pitch FX and Field FX is baseball -- namely, enormous! It's not part of NBA.com/stats yet, but it may be added in the future if all teams embrace that technology. You need six cameras throughout the stadium and some pretty high-end equipment to capture this data.

Good decision by the NBA to upgrade this service. I look at a lot of basketball statistics but haven't used the NBA's official site in ages. Up til now, ESPN's site has been more comprehensive and has paid more attention to advanced metrics, such as PER.

Would like to see stats DB go earlier than currently available 96-97 so I could see Michael Jordan's entire pro career beginning in 1985. Even more, to go back to the 1950s to compare stars of different generations would be very interesting although an imense and expensive data acquistion project. Any PhD statistics candidates need a project, here is your opportunity. Basketball stats have a long way to go to match the depth of baseball. One can dream...

InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
