I really enjoyed doing this project. It was actually the reason I started the course in the first place. I built a K Neighbors model to predict who WOULD have won the 2015 NBA Finals MVP based off of voting patterns. The case for who SHOULD have won it is too subjective/long/a different argument altogether.
It took me like 40 hours to finish but that’s mostly because I was very caught up in wrangling the data. The actual analysis was more like 2-4 hours.
There are improvements to be made on my model. I list them in my Jupyter Notebook. Here’s the link via github:
