This paper intends to analyze the association between NBA statistics and winning percentage and determine if that same relationship holds for player compensation and individual player statistics. To determine the associations, two separate multiple regressions are utilized during the NBA seasons, 2013-2014 and 2014-2015. This paper finds that teams are not effectively compensating players, with more analytical inclined front offices being more effective at compensating players.
