#' Creating Boxplot for NBA Stats
#'  Creates a boxplot of the categorical variable of interest on the y-axis and
#'  the stat of interest on the x-axis.
#' @param dataset  dataframe
#' This dataframe is created after using the nba_scraper.R function or if
#' the csv has already been loaded, read the csv in and pass it as the parameter.
#' @param position string
#' To specify as "POS" if you want to look at Position boxplot.
#' @param teams string
#' The names of teams you want to create boxplot for.
#' *Note you can only choose one of position or teams as a variable to vizualize
#' @param stats string
#' The numeric variable of interest examples:  Points, 3_Pointers, Turnovers
#' @return ggplot boxplot
#' @export
#' @import ggplot2
#' @importFrom magrittr %>%
#' @importFrom stats median
#' @importFrom stats reorder
