Description

Halfway through the National Basketball Association, there is an All-Star break where the 24 best players are selected to participate in an All-Star game. Being selected as an all-star has many implications for the player and his organization, including salary bonuses and legacy concerns. This project aims to identify the probability that players in the National Basketball Association will be selected as an all-star. The model uses a number of statistical indicators including points per game, assists per game, rebounds per game, efficiency ratings, and more.
