While real-life players and the league are cracking their heads on methods to best finish the currently-suspended NBA season due to Covid-19, the makers of the NBA 2K franchise, 2K recently simulated the remainder of the season which saw LeBron James-led LA Lakers win their 17th title.

Facing the Milwaukee Bucks who is led by 2k19 cover athlete, Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Lakers needed seven games and a miraculous three-game comeback to win LeBron’s fourth title, and his first with the Lakers.

After going 1-0 up thanks to a dominant first game showing, the Lakers went on a three game losing streak before turning the tides and capping the series win with a slender 103-101 win in Game 7. 2k20 cover athlete, Anthony Davis was named Finals MVP.

Losing in seven after coming up so close must really hurt for Giannis. Perhaps it’s time to switch teams for a better chance at winning a championship. It worked for KD didn’t it?

Anyway, since we are at it, 2k20 is on sale right now at the PlayStation store at a ridiculous price of RM22.77. Yep. It’s going for 91% off. If that’s not a steal, then we don’t know what is.
