where do i go to get the “kevin.csv” file that you are using?

Schumi Chou on June 21, 2019

I was wondering the same question - could RealPython help to share “kevin.csv” which this course uses? So that we can play with it directly to have more practical impression and experience. Thanks so much!

Thanks for the heads up, you can download the CSV file at basketball-reference.com. Just click on Share & moreGet table as CSV (for Excel) and you can copy the table and save it to a file named kevin.csv.

How do I install the “vincent” package?

pshekhar2707 on March 5, 2020

to install vincent package : i used following command at anaconda prompt (logged in as admin) conda install -c conda-forge vincent

pshekhar2707 on March 5, 2020

After reading file from site mentioned by Dan, you would notice in dataframe 2 columns as :’Unnamed: 5’, and ‘Unnamed: 7’.

So we need to rename those columns as : data.rename(columns={‘Unnamed: 5’:’Home_Away’, ‘Unnamed: 7’:’Win_Loss’}, inplace=True)
