Each year the NBA draft helps determines the future success of the NBA team and during the 1990’s to 2000’s international players were being drafted at a high rate. Why was this happening and were international players more successful than domestic players throughout their careers? Through my study I wanted to examine what determines success for NBA players and whether certain statistical or award performances affects their career. Furthermore I wanted to see the effects that international players had on team attendance throughout their NBA career. Ultimately I wanted to see how NBA coaches, executives, and fans value international players. This study aims to provide insight regarding international players and their success in the NBA.
