Select NBA Teams Will Use Scientific Devices to Track Player Movement

Select NBA Teams Will Use Scientific Devices to Track Player Movement

In the NBA, the future is now.

According to Jeff Caplan of, eight NBA teams are experimenting with some seriously next-level technology to measure the movements of their players:

The device, called OptimEye, is roughly the size of an oldfangled beeper and athletes wear it inside their jerseys on the upper back between the shoulder blades. The device records literally every movement the player makes, accurately measuring exertions such as distance, velocity, changes of direction, acceleration, deceleration, jumps, heart rate and more.

The Dallas Mavericks, Houston Rockets, San Antonio Spurs, New York Knicks and four teams who wished to remain anonymous are all utilizing these monitors to get a grip on whether or not their players are exerting too much energy in workouts.
