EA says Lakers in 7, I say Lakers in 6
6/5/2008 8:04:00 AM
EA simulated the NBA finals with NBA Live 09 and their outcome was the Lakers winning over the Celtics in seven games. I think it won't go that long as the Lakers will be rested and ready for the weary Celtics who got taken to seven games twice and beat the Pistons in six. I look for the combo of Bryant, Gasol, and Odom to beat the three of Garnett, Allen, and Pierce and take home the title back at the Staples Center in the sixth game.
EA SPORTS NBA LIVE 09 SIMULATION PREDICTS LAKERS WILL WIN 2008 NBA FINALS
EA SPORTS NBA LIVE 09 has predicted that the Lakers will capture their 15th NBA Championship by defeating the Celtics in the 2008 NBA Finals simulation. In a historic match-up that was last seen 21 years ago, the series lived up to its billing in a seven game thriller. It was NBA Finals MVP Kobe Bryant who led the charge, averaging 29 points and 6 assists per game throughout the series. With this victory, Phil Jackson set a new record by winning 10 NBA Championships as a coach. The Finals tip off this Thursday at 9PM EST on ABC. NBA LIVE 09 will be in stores on October 7, 2008.
