Based upon my sporadic posts garnering few comments on the Sports Forum:
Freezes the action nicely, captures facial expressions and intensity of players.
The lighting however, is quite harsh, washing out color. The low angle, to me, is unusual, but then I've never been able to use flash on the floor and the pros have mega strobes in the ceiling framework.
The over all angle, again to me, gives the ceiling framework unintended prominence creating a distraction.
I've used a D2x and available light for basketball with some success at f2.8. With a D7000 I'd think available light would not be an issue - just guessing.
Run it by the sports folks, they have a high level of experience and expertise and on occasion can be brutally frank also.
Too, again from personal experience - sports images on Photo Critique as a genre, for whatever reason, do not seem to gather much traction.
Hope this helps,
