NBA Salary Inequality for the 2016-17 Season

Now that the NBA playoffs are well underway, I thought I would come back to looking at salary inequality among NBA players.  As I wrote earlier, NBA salary inequality had been improving over the last few years.  So I again I collected the NBA salary data from ESPN and calculated the Gini coefficient for the league as a whole.  For the most recent season, we see that salary inequality has taken a step backwards, with the Gini coefficient now 0.5519 and is worse than the US Gini coefficient for 2014 of 0.480.
