That NBA Lottery Pick:
If you happen to be attending a Houston Rockets game this year at the Toyota Center, you going to be seeing a rather huge scoreboard that the team has installed for the fans to get a better look at the action.
Here are the specifics of the scoreboard that were released by the Rockets back on Tuesday:
The new scoreboard will be manufactured and installed by Panasonic and will feature the largest combined viewing area of any indoor center-hung scoreboard currently used in the U.S. The scoreboard will contain four large screens — two rectangular-shaped displays that will face the east and west seating areas and a pair of square-shaped screens that will face the north and south ends of the bowl. The larger boards will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 58 [feet] wide. The two end panels will measure approximately 25 [feet] high by 25 [feet] wide. All the boards will display a full HD signal with 1080 lines of resolution.
Below is a mock-up photo of what it will look like:
