    I know a bunch of people don't watch the NBA, but...

    This is some crazy technology right here.

    I'm a stats guy, always have been and always will be. So the idea of putting tons of tiny cameras in the rafters of NBA arenas to do detailed performance analysis and statistics is amazing to me!

    This really could revolutionize the game, kind of the way that fantasy baseball and all the statistics involved with that helped boost MLB back into prominence after so many down years. Not only for the fan who has struggled with a meaningless box score for years, but now teams can use it to better scout opposition and *gasp* maybe gameplan better defensively to make the NBA more balanced.

    I think this year's playoffs have been fantastic. Lots of good young fun teams palying hard. Some really wild finishes and great comebacks. I'd love OKC v Indiana in the finals - networks wouldn't like this, but don't want to see Miami, Boston, San Antonio or Lakers.

    That's crazy. Coaches would have so much data they wouldn't know what to do.

    It could change the way some role players are valued, could create "Moneyball" type scenario's.
