This NBA’s video is titled Enhanced Condensed Game Trial – Boston vs Washington and credited to NBA. Viewing time is 00:10:18, enjoy our fellow NBA fans!


  1. Best thing you can do to kill the competition of highlight reels is to INCLUDE important plays (strings of plays) that take crowds out, swing momentum, etc. So when we watch these, its not just chopped up, but there are moments where we get how the game suddenly changed in flow.

  2. the stats and game facts are a very good idea and very well done, also the pick & roll etc. indicators, but I feel like having the animation below the player on simple things like them being open is doing too much (e.g. 0:23). makes it feel like 2k which is kinda weird

  3. This looks really good for a trial, and a good way for the Nba channel to add something to just the regular highlights. They could also look into an And 1 graphic and that shows up it highlights every now and then

  4. Cool stuff. Great UI design. Read-able without feeling too intrusive. My only feedback would be in regards to the "floaties" placement. As an interactive content developer, the big thing that came to mind for me was that maybe the stat updates (ex. assist #s after a basket) would be more visible near the basket, because the user's eye is always following the ball.

  5. ONE CRITIQUE. Instead of saying 2 points or 3 points. You should show their total points because viewers can do the simple math in their head if it was a 2 or 3 or can simply tell from watching the highlight.

  6. So I think my primary concern is when the player's stats above their head interfere with the action. The ball and the basket specifically should never be hidden by the player's stats so I'd have them fade to the background whenever the ball or a basket would be blocked by statistics over a player's head. Other than that I think this is pretty cool.

  7. Imagine if the NBA banned all traces of those 10 minute highlight videos that actually make following all 1230 regular season games a possibility, instead of getting with the program. Competition is good.

  8. As cool as this is, I think many would agree that most fans would prefer the ASAP uploads over nice on ball/player graphics. Cause I know that shit take time to track. hahah I think the corner and quarter summary graphics plus fast uploads would be the sweet spot.

  9. There's a lot of stuff going on here. Pretty impressive that they can get the algorithm to recognize plays and players and tag it accordingly in the video. A bit of information overload, but it doesn't really tell the story of the game.

    I liked the play overlays like pick and rolls, screens and shot openness.

    I didn't really care for the stats. It only adds to the narrative if a player is really lightning it up, or if you're showcasing a "duel" between two players.

    Pass-to-assist (hockey pass) might also be cool to see once in a while. Maybe add a category of "very solid play" for when all teammates touch the ball before scoring.

    Pretty cool first attempt. Looking forward to future iteration.
