This project uses pairwise comparisons to determine the most likely team to win the 2003 NBA Championship. Statistics were gathered for four semi-final teams and were used to measure team strength. Project team members used the data to base their judgment when comparing teams. Comparisons began with no data available and the amount of data was increased sequentially until six statistical criteria were available with which to substantiate the scores. Probabilities were calculated using the Pairwise Comparison Model (PCM) software.
