NBA 2K17 Predicts the NBA Playoffs

The NBA Playoffs tip off today and the premier basketball sim NBA 2K has simulated the entire thing and given us the sure fire winner of this year’s Larry O’Brien Trophy.

After a series of expected first round results the upset really start flowing in the second round when John Wall and in the Wizards beat (my) number one seeded Celtics and MVP contender James Harden carries the Rocket’s past the Spurs.

However, the conference finals go as expected, and for the third year in a row Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors meet LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. With all the virtual 3-1 lead memes surrounding what is certain to be an epic series, the Warriors finally put last year’s demons to bed and get their revenge by taking down the defending champions in a 7 game series.

Will this all happen as 2K predict, let’s hope not for my Celtics sake, but certainly a lot of fun to see how these simulation game predict these matchups. You can see the full bracket of the entire 2K playoffs below.
