Maps That Show NBA Players Where to Shoot...

 

What is considered a good play or a bad play in most sports is situational and depends on context.  One of the many contexts in basketball that determines that constitutes 'a good shoot' is where you are on the court in relation to the hoop.  In essence, this is a spatial factor, and spatial analysis is critical to informing sports strategy and a geography professor did just that in this study.  In this month of March, mentioning sports in a geographic context might help students see how spatial analysis matters is a wide range of subjects.

CoreyMabray's insight:

What seems like a good shot to you might not technically described as a good shot. Where you are in comparison to the basket will determine whether it is a good shot or not. whether or not you are squared up facing the basket when you shoot is a factor on how consistent your shot will be.

How would it feel to be doing the thing you love more than anything else surrounded by members of the opposite sex. Some wouldnt do it because they know they will be criticized that they are not in the right place.  http://newsone.com/2815055/violet-palmer-nba-female-referee-violet-palmer/?omcamp=sf_N1FB

Robot Japan 5: Autonomous Basketball

A humanoid robot from Seoul University of Science and Technology, operating completely autonomously during the Performance competition at Robot Japan held in Tokyo.

The robot locates the basketball hoop, walks across the court, positions itself, raises its arm, and tries to throw the basketball through the hoop.

The difference between the first and second attempts was the robots distance from the hoop. It was further away the second time.

Now we have robots being able to do anything they are programmed. How long is it gonna be until robots are the ones actually playing the game?

Sometimes it is nice to see the President focusing more on his family than his job. We need to realize that he is no better than any of us and he should be able to enjoy games with his family just as we do.

CoreyMabray's insight:

Some might say NBA players are too pampered in the locker room. Desiring anything they want or any treatmnent they please before a game. Pretty soon with all the new techology in these locker rooms it will only be robots or high powered machines to do these tasks and put those workers out of a job.
