Conclusions

This project successfully extracts significant insights from NBA data, such as:

  • The team with the highest regular season winning percentage doesn't typically win the league championship
  • Top players in their prime like Michael Jordan and Wilt Chamberlain dominated the league for several seasons in a row in terms of scoring
  • Dynasty teams like the Celtics and Lakers often had the most members of the NBA Greatest 75 Team
  • Spending the most money does not guarantee you a championship
  • ...but keep the hope, Knicks fans. If you are a bad team, there is always a chance for a miraculous single sesaon turnaround that can take you straight to the top
