NBA players: are they paid for performance?
Article publication date: 1 July 2000
This paper studies the relationship between NBA players’ salaries and their performance on the basketball court. In other industries executive compensation has been found to have a weak yet significant link to company performance. We find a positive and significant relationship between an NBA player’s salary and a player’s points per game and rebounds per game for 1997‐98 basketball season. These results may be improved by considering qualitative factors and including more years of data.
