It's been a while. This last semester of school was decently overwhelming, so I took a break from maintaining the model. Sorry about that. I graduated Bucknell recently, and should be heading to UMich soon to pursue an Applied Statistics degree. This summer, I was not able to secure an internship, so I am making myself as strong of a Computer Science student as I can for the time being by learning applicable concepts such as Machine Learning.
This semester, I had the opportunity to do any project of choice for my econometrics class. I love basketball, so I used an econometric model to investigate a novel idea in the world of basketball -- using the standardized variance of the player efficiency rating to predict team winning percentage. This would prove if the balance of an NBA roster, or at least the starting 6, has an effect on a team's winningness.
I have attached the doc below if anyone cares to read. It was a lot of fun to do this project. Shoot me an email if you ever want to talk about it!
If you'd like access to the model, just write to me and I'll be happy to share!
