Extracting NBA player movement data

Aug 27, 2015

NBA basketball teams have tracking systems installed in their arenas called SportVu, essentially a system of cameras pointed at the court to track player movements. Some of that data is browsable through the NBA site, but there’s understandably no direct download link. However, there is an API. Savvas Tjortjoglou wrote a thorough tutorial on how to grab data via the API and plot it Python.

This will be fun.
