NBA Finals ’08 Redux (What Might Have Been?) July 8, 2008

Posted by Brian L. Belen in Video Games.

Back in early June, Kotaku’s Brian Crescente wrote about how EA Sports ran a simulation of what was then the soon-to-be-played NBA Finals to see who would come out on top. It’s something the folks over there — both at EA (who use their games in this way from time to time) and Kotaku (who write about it accordingly) — do somewhat regularly. The results? Lakers beat the Celtics in seven.

I wanted to write about it in the run-up to the actual Finals but never got around to doing so. All for the best, I suppose: since the real thing is already over, it’s fun to compare how the actual Finals measure up.

It also goes without saying the write-up makes for a curious look into what might have been — especially for Lakers fans out there.
