Welcome to Basketball VMI



Message of the Day

The NBA is in full Playoff mode.  With Denver, Phoenix, Okalahoma City and Minnesota still in the Postseason run, the VMI's are relatively high at the beginning of each series.  Since every player on each team is exposed to the same climate conditions during shoot arounds and games, then the ADI affects every player for that team.  This is what you saw in Saturday night's game from Lebron James and all the Lakers team mates--and, in the first games in Denver.  So pick your players, but remember what the VMI is for him on that day.  See Basketballvmi and if you sign up during this post season, remember the fee will get you a full calendar year membership, so you will be getting well into the 2025 postseason before needing to renew.

The 3-Point Shot in Basketball

Extreme differences in Barometric Pressure can cause players longer 2-point and 3-point attempts to be too long or too short by several inches.

According to the Noah's Arc "basketball shot analyzer" creator, "at the best arc (45 degrees), the shooter has only 1-1/2 inches of room between the edge of the rim and the surface of the basketball."
Basketball VMI tracks the teams', every game day, and displays a team index for your analysis.

We are not tracking the tiny ups and downs of the air pressure, but the exposure of the players to the big ones as they travel to different arenas.  BasketballVMI provides you with a daily index a day or more ahead of game-time so that you can identify performance issues for teams and individuals in advance.  The "Team VMI's" listed within our reports identify changes in the shooters' "feel" to launch a basketball the precise distance to make the shot.  See https://www.noahbasketball.com/ for analysis of the "perfect shot."

If a perimeter shooter misses, or makes more shots than normal for him, the rebounders from both teams will be affected by greater or fewer opportunities to increase their scores, as well.  

By adding our index to your formulas, you will soon be able to identify certain teams, players and VMI's that give you an advantage no one else has.

Remember for Today's Games: You must be logged in to your account to view Today's or Tomorrow's VMI or PWR Index on the NBA or NCAAB pages.

The VMI Index  

Changing Elevations Creates Extreme Differences in Barometric Pressure.  This Causes the 3-Pt. Shot to be Long or Short by Several Inches, and only 1-1/2 inches off-center toward any edge of the rim will create a potential miss.

A minus index number such as minus 2.5 means the perimeter shooters on this team will tend to shoot a little short in today's game.  A larger index number, such as a minus 10.25 means a shot will tend to be shorter yet.  

A plus index number, such as a plus 5.0 means the perimeter shooters on this team will tend to shoot long in today's game.  A larger index number, such as a plus 15.0 means a perimeter shot will tend to be longer yet. 

The VMI Power Index

The VMI Power Index is built from games performed within today's unique VMI Range for both the home team and the visiting team.  Games played within other VMI Ranges are eliminated from the power indicators, so you see the historical results from only those games played within today's VMI Range of +/-5.99.  You will be able to view both the VMI Index and the Power Index on all the game match-up displays.  Both will be visible in parentheses following the team name.
