Diverse Conversation Regarding the NBA Bubble

Project Description

The NBA season was cut short in 2020 due to a world-wide pandemic, and rather than postpone the season until next year the NBA decide to create a “Whole New Game“, where they will keep the players isolated from the outside world for the duration of the season by keeping them at Walt Disney World Resort to play at one of their three stadiums. 

The O.Y.E. tool was used in order to examine twitter conversations around NBA Restart and the NBA Bubble. O.Y.E. is able to segment this data into groups based on ethnicity, age, and language is spoken. Additionally, the language analysis tool can gather sentiment and keyword data to breakdown diverse conversations around the NBA Restart.

Methodology
