The evaluation of results is one of the most important roles in any process .Beside the fact that the evaluation helps in the achievement of one goal, it is observed that this intricate procedure, gives us the opportunity to compare different units together. Through years various assessment methods, have been development methods which broaden the implementation field. The most potent points of "Data Envelopment Analysis -DEA" and the implementation fields have been presented and analyzed with prudency in similar surveys. In this dissertation, after a theoretical review of the DEA, in the research track, there has been an effort to observe the performances efficiency of the players of the American Basketball League (National Basketball America -NBA) via the "Data Envelopment Analysis" which is a method of valuation of efficiency of a set of comparable and homogenous units, under the assumption of variable returns to scale (VRS). The most characteristic attribute of this methodology is the classification of "Decision Making Units -DMU" into efficient and inefficient. After determining the model which was used, the inputs and outputs were defined and analyzed. There has also been an extensive analysis of the results till the third level of efficiency.
