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.

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.
