Most of the players always try their best to contribute to their game and profession during the progression of their playing and placed themselves in history. Yet no scientific research has identified the most technically efficient players in basketball considering their performance in the game. The objective of this paper is to evaluate the technical and scale efficiency of players of the National Basketball Association (NBA) using CCR and BCC Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) Models with output orientation. The models are applied to evaluate the technical and scale efficiency of all-time. The average scale efficiency (0.9326) is highest among all the three efficiencies i.e., technical efficiency (0.8360) and pure technical efficiencies (0.8955). The results illustrate that 81 players are scale efficient (SE=1) whereas 21% players have high scale efficiency score. Also, output projections for the inefficient players were presented. Significant outcomes concerning efficiency frontier projections were analysed in this study.
