How has technology changed the NBA
Transcript of How has technology changed the NBA
How has technology changed the NBA?
Nearly every player has his own social media account. They can use it to connect to their fans. Many people love the fact that they can see into their favorite NBA star's personal life. Cellphones can even access these accounts so they can be viewed from anyone and anywhere in the world.
Instant replay is a critical part of today's NBA. It can be used in situations to verify what happened in real time. For example, if LeBron shoots a game winning three at the buzzer, the referees can look at the replay to see if he got the shot off in time.
Instant replay can also be used to see that awesome Blake Griffin dunk again... in slow motion too!
Fans love watching highlights so they can see whats going on in games they didn't watch. The expanded use of technology has allowed for highlights to be watched anywhere. For example, the NBA game time app and NBA.com, allow for the access of highlights at the touch of a button.
Use of Advanced Stats
Improvements in electronics and technology have allowed for the recording of advanced stats. Advanced stats are a variety of statistics that can be very useful to improving one's game. They include performance while wearing sleeves, with a headband, with certain practice schedules, and more. Coaches and players can view these stats to see what they should be doing for the highest performance possible.
Original Shot clock
To improve the scoring of games and raise fan attendance, the NBA introduced the electronic shot clock in 1954. This gave teams a limit of 24 seconds to shoot the ball and increased the points per game average from 79.5 to 93.1. The original shot clock is at LeMoyne College in Syracuse New York.
(Of course he did though, he's LeBron.)
