The NBA is one of the most tech-savvy sports leagues. A lot of that has to do with CIO Michael Gliedman, who oversees the process of turning reams of data into a fan-friendly stats website.
I feel for the poor person(s) who has to input every movement and shot during the game - and where are the cameras that record the analytical data ? I want to keep an eye out for it next year ....
Come to think of it I might apply for this job - can you put in a good word for me Sara ?
@danielcawrey I am surprised the NFL has not done this as well - but you have a point - they will probably act like Microsoft and buy the assets they cannot develop.
This was really interesting to see. NBA teams don't really need to do Analytics in-house anymore - the NBA is doing it for them.
And Sara no matter how terrible your Knicks are the Lakers are still worse. Kobe, please, please retire !
