Later today, the 2017-18 NBA Season kicks off, but NBA 2K18 players have already had a month to take part in the basketball action for themselves.
Yesterday, 2K released the results of their official simulation of the upcoming NBA season, with some surprising and expected outcomes. Despite Oklahoma City’s big offseason changes to their roster, the 2K18 simulation has the team barely going over .500, even with Westbrook once again winning the Season MVP. Over in the East, Cleveland had a better regular season record, but it was ultimately the Celtics that topped them in the Eastern Conference Finals, where they would go on to lose to, you guessed it, Golden State in the NBA Finals, with Kevin Durant once again winning Finals MVP.
Fans hoping for a different season outcome can do so with NBA 2K18, out now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, Xbox 360 and PS3, with our review praising this year’s release as another quality basketball simulator.
