The purpose of this investigation is to present a statistical model to find the dominant skill of the ten National Basketball Association (NBA) superstars that portray muscle memory from the NBA Regular Season 2014-2018. Training and work-outs of every NBA superstar are identified to determine what constitutes muscle memory. This study used descriptive statistics (mean, standard error of the mean, and standard deviation), time series plot, and multiple linear regression to create a reliable model for the ten outstanding player rankings in the NBA. The independent variables within the regression equation included field goal percentage (FG%), three-point percentage (3P%), free-throw percentage (FT%). The free-throws and field- goals have a consistent average throughout the years and positively contribute to scoring. While, as the player gets older, injuries and fatigue are the factors that affect the three-points performance of a player. Hence, the NBA player’s offensive training and work-outs are identified to provide a valuable tool. The person-concerned must take into consideration the science and the various parameters which improve a certain offensive skill of an athlete. And for coaches, athletes, and physical education instructors, it would be better if all their training related to the improvement of basketball offensive skills must be closelybased on the training and workouts provided in this study
