On his way to the National Basketball Association scoring title last year, Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks made 669 shots, not counting free throws. Starting Monday, you can watch every single one of them on the league’s stats page. You can also watch any of Anthony’s 820 missed shots, 460 rebounds, 175 turnovers, or just about any play by any of the 400-odd players in the league.
Virtually every statistic in the NBA’s online database, beginning with last season, will be linked to video showing the play it describes. Go to the box score for the decisive game of the finals from June, for instance, click on the 3 that denotes LeBron James’s offensive rebounds for the night, and up pops a box with all three clips.
