Why don't we have this fancy stat tracking camera?


I read this article today on Grantland.com from Zach Lowe

The Height of Wonkery: An In Depth Look at the NBA with the Most Innovative Technology Available

It talks about this fancy camera from STATS LLC that "records every single movement on the court — the ball, the players, the referees, etc. — in three dimensions. The cameras can measure just about anything, and the teams that are using them best have moved far ahead in developing their own algorithms to measure whatever they wish — which team forces pick-and-rolls left most often, where corner 3s typically rebound when they miss, and how often a player accelerates from “jog” to “sprint” during a game."

Half of the teams in the NBA have this camera, and the Blazers are not one of them. The teams with the fancy camera are: Houston, Boston, New York, Washington, Milwaukee, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Golden State, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Orlando, Dallas, Minnesota, Toronto, Cleveland.

It seems ridiculous to me that a team with Paul Allen's money would not have this camera. The co-founder of Microsoft should have the "Most Innovative Technology Available." What do you think?
