When it comes to NBA and predictions, some of the deepest research of the game goes into NBA 2K each year. Therefore, 2K should be a pretty accurate predictor of how the NBA season will play out. So I decided to see what 2K thinks will happen.

We will start with the award winners:

MVP: Russell Westbrook (31.9 PPG, 10.7 RPG, 8.1 APG)

Rookie of the Year: Trae Young (22.0 PPG, 4.0 APG, 41.7 3P%)

6th Man of the Year: Tyreke Evans (20.0 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 4.0 APG)

Most Improved Player: Blake Griffin (22.3 PPG, 8.3 RPG, 4.6 APG)

Defensive Player of the Year: Draymond Green

Coach of the Year: Steve Kerr

We will skip the regular season and just get to the playoffs.

The seeding for each conference are below:

Eastern Conference

  1. Toronto Raptors
  2. Boston Celtics
  3. Philadelphia 76ers
  4. Milwaukee Bucks
  5. Indiana Pacers
  6. Washington Wizards
  7. Atlanta Hawks
  8. Brooklyn Nets

Western Conference

  1. Golden State Warriors
  2. Houston Rockets
  3. Oklahoma City Thunder
  4. Los Angeles Lakers
  5. Minnesota Timberwolves
  6. Utah Jazz
  7. Denver Nuggets
  8. San Antonio Spurs

Here is how it plays out:

1st Round

Toronto beats Brooklyn 4-1

Milwaukee beats Indiana 4-2

Washington beats Philadelphia 4-2

Boston beats Atlanta 4-2

Golden State beats San Antonio 4-2

Minnesota beats Los Angeles 4-1

Oklahoma City beats Utah 4-3

Houston beats Denver 4-0

 

2nd Round

Toronto beats Milwaukee 4-0

Boston beats Washington 4-1

Golden State beats Minnesota 4-1

Houston beats Oklahoma City 4-0

 

Conference Finals

Toronto beats Boston 4-0

Houston beats Golden State 4-1

 

NBA Finals

Houston beats Toronto 4-1

Chris Paul is named the Finals MVP.

 

Some of these seem like a stretch, but according to 2K, all the Rockets needed was Carmelo Anthony (and Steph Curry breaking his back during the last week of the regular season).
