The tech helping the Warriors to winThe Golden State Warriors are setting records for their winning streak and their three-point shots, and technology is playing a role. CNET's Brian Tong talks to Klay Thompson about the tech the team uses.
[MUSIC] Watching the Golden State Warriors's Seth Curry and Klay Thompson at practice is witnessing an exercise in precision and persistence. You know, I love to shoot, I've always had a passion for it. Repetition is key, and now so is data that tracks all those shots, where they're taken on the court, and how players are holding up. The Warriors love to apply anything they can to get ahead and we've got a device that tracks our movement and how much energy we are expending.>>Getting player and game data is easier than ever thanks to a camera system that is built into every NBA venue called Sport View. Six cameras spread around the catwalks And we're tracking the movements of the players 25 times a second. That data from the real-time tracking system is sent to servers that generate a host of stats. Passes, dribbles, touches, to how fast a player's running, how far did he run, how much physical load has been on his body. But this type of technology will soon be available for your neighborhood court. Spalding and shock tracker will soon release a team tracking system. Multiplayer, multi ball, really builds the track data in a real time environment. For now consumer basketball tech is focused on helping one player who is shooting and dribbling. Shot tracker's individual system uses sensors that go on the net and your shooting arm. The app runs you through drills and calculates your shooting percentage. This might look like an average basketball, but this is the Wilson X. Inside, there are sensors here that tell you when you've made your shot, the distance you've taken that shot in, your misses The Blast Basketball Replay is a motion sensor that connects to an app. It can record slow mo videos with three different steps so you can beef up your highlight reel.
