NBA Twitter Prospect Projections App

Social media, especially personal social media accounts, offers us a glimpse into individual personality. The goal of this project was to leverage personality insights gleaned from NBA prospects' twitter accounts as part of the scouting process. In other words, this project answers two main questions.

  1. Can we see a relationship between a player’s social media usage and their on-court performance?

  2. Can we use a player’s twitter account to help project their on-court performance?
