Although it's been said a picture is worth a thousand words, Sports Illustrated, with an innovative eye toward the future, has developed a method to quadruple the figure used in that old adage. SI's photographers can now set four shutters to capture the same piece of the action from four separate angles. It allows, for instance, multiple perspectives of Kobe Bryant making spectators of David Robinson and Danny Ferry (above) and of Shaquille O'Neal not necessarily saluting the Admiral (below).
