2K Sports NBA 2K11 Simulation Predicts Chicago Bulls Will Win 2011 NBA Championship

According to a simulation of the NBA Conference Finals and Finals through 2K Sports’ NBA 2K11, the Chicago Bulls will take home the NBA championship this season following a seven game series victory over the Dallas Mavericks. NBA Finals MVP Derrick Rose led the way for the Bulls, averaging 33 points and nearly 10 assists in Games 5-7, with the Bulls facing elimination in each contest.

Below are some key statistics from the NBA 2K11 Conference Finals and NBA Finals simulations.

Eastern Conference:
  • The Bulls out-rebounded Miami in five of the series’ seven games, and the duo of Joakim Noah and Carlos Boozer combined for more than 17 rebounds per game.
  • Rose had a stellar series; averaging 32.4 points a game to go with 7.6 assists.
  • LeBron James (27 points, 8.6 rebounds) and Dwayne Wade (25, 5.6) played well in defeat.
Western Conference:
  • Kevin Durant averaged 33 points and nearly 11 rebounds a game, but Dirk Nowitzki (30, 9) matched him every step of the way.
  • The aging Jason Kidd showed he wasn’t ready to retire, averaging 7 points, 5 rebounds, 8 assists, 3 steals during the seven game series.
NBA Finals:
  • Rose had ice in his veins under pressure. In the deciding Game 7, Rose sealed the title with a 42 point performance.
  • The Bulls’ role players came up huge when it mattered. Luol Deng’s 33 points in Game 5 helped get the series back to Chicago, while Carlos Boozer’s 23 point and 17 rebound performance forced a Game 7. Boozer and Joakim Noah combined for 27 points and 17 rebounds in the clincher.
  • Despite a stellar performance from Nowitzki throughout the series (25 points, 8 rebounds), he mustered just 17 points in Game 7 on 6-14 shooting.

# 2 Trash-man143 @ 05/21/11 11:27 AM
seem realistic but i want dallas to win
# 3 blarg. @ 05/21/11 11:41 AM
i could see it happening. i feel like all 4 teams left have a realistic shot of taking it all. it just depends on whos playing hot for the next few weeks.
# 4 xITSxDAWKINSx @ 05/21/11 12:34 PM
anyone but the heat, yes im a *****
# 5 BleacherBum2310 @ 05/21/11 12:42 PM

I can't see Dallas going up 3-1 on the Bulls, let alone it going 7, though that is Dallas' history speaking for me there. I'd much rather see OKC vs. Chicago. Seems like a better match up to me. Hopefully the Thunder can get both games at home.

What makes OKC vs Chicago a better game?
# 8 dochalladay32 @ 05/21/11 02:24 PM
Dirk is just boring for me to watch. OKC is exciting to me. Now if Jason Terry goes off and takes over some games, they have my interest, but Dirk just doesn't play a game of basketball I can be interested in watching. Westbrook vs. Rose also seems like it could be an incredible matchup if Westbrook can figure out what he's doing again.

ANYbody pourin' in 48 on NBA competition is NOT boring to watch for me.
# 10 dochalladay32 @ 05/21/11 05:11 PM
I never said I spoke for everyone, and half those 48 came from the Kevin Durant treatment. If he didn't have 40 somethin points after 24 free throws, then I'd be surprised.

I am excited to see Chicago vs. Dallas I think it could go 7 I am rooting for Dallas as Kidd is running out of time to win one
# 12 Perfect23 @ 05/21/11 05:52 PM

I hope the Bulls win it all sick of hearing about the Heat .If the Bulls don't make then I hope the Mavs do.

ya I dont see the bulls getting past miami, not with the way the heat have played in the playoffs. Boozer and noah have been way to inconsistant, and Lebron, wade, and bosh have all played great, and if haslem continues to give them good play off the bench. Rose will play great night in and night out, but that and the bulls bench isnt going to be enough to match what the heat's big 3 can do.

And I see the mavs getting past the thunder easily, dirks play is just great, his shot is just something youve never seen before. All we need to see is more consistancy out of their bench and slightly better defense and they will be heading on. In the end I see dirk dominating the heat, however I dont think thats going to be enough for the mavs to win. If Z was faster, then I think he could contain dirk, too bad hes not.
