The NBA is constantly accused of race affecting the players salary. The research conducted will be able to help determine if that is actually the case or not. Using variables such as assist ratings, rebound ratings, and field goal ratings, and using race as a dummy variable, I was able to come to a conclusion on if the players race played a role in their salary or not. With using just the simple amount of performance variables, I was able to conclude that the NBA players do not get paid according to their skin color.
