NBA Live 10 Predicts Cavs to Win Title

Posted By on Thu, Oct 22, 2009 at 1:18 PM


As we all anxiously await next Tuesday's season opener against the Celtics, we also anxiously dig into any and all relevant news, looking for something, anything to say about the Cavs. More specifically, something, anything to point us towards the conclusion that the Cavs will finally end Cleveland's sports title drought.

Some good news for us, then.

From the NBA Live 10 Press Release:

An EA SPORTS™ videogame simulation of the entire 2009—10 NBA season using NBA LIVE 10 predicts that the Cleveland Cavaliers will rebound from last year’s playoff elimination and defeat the Los Angeles Lakers in an exhilarating seven-game series during The Finals 2010. Cleveland’s LeBron James completes a legendary season by capturing both the regular season and The Finals MVP awards.

Behind James and the new addition of Shaquille O’Neal, the Cleveland Cavaliers finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference. After defeating the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls in the NBA Playoffs, the Cavaliers tipped off against the 2009 Eastern Conference Champion, Orlando Magic, in a rematch of last year’s exciting Eastern Conference Finals.

The Los Angeles Lakers finished with the best regular season record in the NBA by tallying an impressive 63 wins. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant led his team in scoring by averaging 27.9 points per game, while teammate Pau Gasol finished as the teams best rebounder securing 10.3 rebounds per game. Los Angeles went on to defeat the Utah Jazz, Denver Nuggets and San Antonio Spurs to advance to The Finals.

I dig it.
