Abstract

This study looks to explore ‘superstar’ influences within the National Basketball Association. ‘Superstars’ are players awarded accolades by sportscasters and sport writers through their exceptional play. Through looking at variables integral to determining the outcome of basketball games, the addition of ‘superstar’ variables should explain the exact influence that recognized players have. I apply a lag to the ‘superstar’ influences on account of player’s reputations for success before they are awarded, controlling for a constant value.
