Lights, Cameras, Revolution

I don't often link to articles not about the NFL or the Eagles, but this one deserves a read. Zach Lowe of Grantland gets an unprecedented inside look at the camera-tracking system used by the NBA's Toronto Raptors to analyze and compute optimal playing styles. I don't want to be that guy who always yells, "This is the future of sports analytics," but it sure is cool. Some NFL teams are also experimenting with cameras, GPS, and other similar systems.
