NBA Salary and Player Data Analysis

For my capstone project, I looked at the NBA salary cap, how it affects player recruitment, and finding a way to present player metric data in a easy-to-consume fashion. You can find the link to the presentation and dashboards on Tableau Public.

Most of my work cleaning was done in Python and using the Pandas package to pull the data from the NBA Stats API, as well as scraping player salary, salary cap, and luxury tax data from ESPN and Sportrac using Beautiful Soup. From there, I uploaded the data onto Tableau and created my data visualizations and storyboard. The slides themselves were SVG files created via Google Slides.
