The data I'm playing with comes from the internet source listed below
nba <- read.csv("http://datasets.flowingdata.com/ppg2008.csv", sep=",")
What I want to do, is create a 2D points graph comparing two metrics from this table, with each player representing a dot on the graph. I have the following code:
nbaplot <- ggplot(nba, aes(x= MIN, y= PTS, colour="green", label=Name)) +
This gives me the following:
What I want is a label of the player's name right next to the dots. I thought the label function in ggplot's aesthetics would do this for me, but it didn't.
I also tried text() function and the textxy() function from the library(calibrate), neither of which appears to work with ggplot.
How can I add name labels to these points?
