On Friday, the Sacramento Kings debuted the use of Google Glass during their game against the Indiana Pacers.
Of course, the glasses weren’t used during the actual game – that may take some heavy arm twisting from the league office in the future – but they were used during a handful of moments, including pre-game introductions and more.
They were also used in practice with rookies Ben McLemore and Ray McCallum, who wore the popular technology pieces as they went one-on-one and also teamed up for some tandum plays, like McCallum throwing an off the backboard assist to McLemore for an impressive slam.
Very cool to see and pretty neat that the Kings are becoming known as innovators around the league for their use of technology. It’s just the tip of the iceberg though as the Kings have so much more planned moving forward.
Also – complete side-note, but the NBA would be well pressed to use Google Glass during the upcoming All-Star Weekend. Pretty sure people would love to see it used in game action or during the Slam Dunk contest.
