1. A system for evaluating basketball shooting performance, the system comprising:

  • at least one sensor configured to sense a basketball during a basketball shot at a basketball hoop by a player;

    a memory device;

    at least one processor configured to receive, from the at least one sensor, sensor data indicative of the basketball during the basketball shot, the at least one processor configured to select a base point for the basketball shot based on the sensor data, wherein a location of the selected base point relative to a predefined reference point is indicative of a first shot direction for the basketball shot, wherein the at least one processor is further configured to determine a shot placement of the basketball shot with respect to the basketball hoop based on the selected base point, wherein the at least one processor is configured to generate a map characterizing a shooting performance of the player, wherein the map indicates a plurality of shot placements for a plurality of basketball shots with respect to the basketball hoop, wherein the at least one processor is configured to normalize the shot placement to a predefined reference point by rotating the shot placement by an amount based on the selected base point, thereby defining a normalized shot placement for the basketball shot, such that the normalized shot placement is indicated on the map as if the basketball shot was taken from a predefined shot direction rather than the first shot direction; and

    an output interface configured to provide an output based on the generated map.
