Predicting MVP is too easy.
Using anlaytics for such a task is overkill.
While that might be a fair point, this is my first attempt at an analytics project. This was a current discussion so I thought it'd be an interesting project that I could learn a lot from. I've already learned a ton of things I can apply to future projects. Have to start somewhere
Alright then. Consider these 3 variables (sorted by weight).
1. Team Wins
2. Total (PPG+RPG+APG+SPG+BPG-TPG)
3. Difference between the 1st and 2nd player in Total (for each team).
These 3 are all you need. But if you want more you can consider adding TS% and USG%. And don't forget: MVP should play at least 75% of his team's games. It's a requirement.
