Real life is gonna be like a video game with the live data... 
"Look, Kobes stamina is low, time to rest him"... :laughing: 
I could actually see "auto subbing" as a real possibility because of this.

 

 

The NBA announced Thursday that it will install motion-tracking cameras in every arena this season to provide coaches, players and fans reams of data aimed at pulling back the curtain on what it takes to succeed at basketball's highest level.

The NBA has partnered with STATS on the SportVU cameras, and the relationship has grown from a single arena during the 2009 NBA Finals into a league-wide initiative that will be up and ready for the start of this season. The technology can monitor every move a player makes on the court, gauge how tired he is and can even keep an eye on the job referees are doing.

Want to get an idea how close to 100 percent Kevin Love was in his first few games back from a broken hand? The system could send information to the team trainers and doctors about his endurance and how quickly he is tiring during a game, thereby painting the most accurate picture possible of his recovery.


Want to see how successful Ricky Rubio was at guarding Russell Westbrook? The system could break down the shooting percentages and results of each head-to-head possession.

 

Want to see how many times Al Jefferson touched the ball on the left block in the first half? The system could send information to an iPad that showed the location of every one of his possessions and allowed coaches to make adjustments on the fly.

Great more stats.


"Well tonight Venus is aligning Saturn, and the Lakers have a 100% winning percentage under those conditions, but there's also a full moon out tonight and when the Lakers play on a full moon Kobe has a tendency to shoot more, but because it's cloudy with a chance of rain it should be at a higher percentage, but because we're on the second Saturday of March Kobe could shoot lower than expected, but it's also a PM game which means he should be ready, factoring the calculation that he only sleeps 4 hours a day if this game goes into overtime he could tire, and when tired on a back to back full moon night in the second weekend of the month he seems to struggle, so you'd have to calculate that if the Lakers don't finish this game off in 4 quarters that Kobe won't be a factor in overtime." 

**Kobe hits a game winner in triple overtime while recording 55 points 14 rebounds and 13 assists on 63% shooting**

"Well [expletive]..."


 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

:laughing: for ^ Majesty.

Whats funny is your pointing out what was once an extremity but now could be a viable explanation spewing from a talking heads mouth.
