EA Sports has simmed the 2006-07 NBA season with NBA Live 07.
"NEW YORK and REDWOOD CITY, CA, OCTOBER 30, 2006 – The Dallas Mavericks captured their first NBA championship by defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in six games during an Electronic Arts NBA LIVE 07 videogame simulation that offers complete fantasy results on the entire 2006-07 NBA season.
Mavericks’ forward Dirk Nowitzki was named The Finals MVP after averaging 20.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in the playoffs. During the regular season, the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Garnett received the MVP award after scoring 25.8 ppg, leading the league in rebounding (12.1 rpg) and finishing third overall in blocks (2.5 bpg).
The fourth playoff seed in the Western Conference after posting a 56-26 regular season record, the Mavericks reached the The Finals for a second consecutive year after defeating the top-seeded San Antonio Spurs in a seven-game Western Conference Finals. The Cavaliers defeated the defending NBA champion Miami Heat in seven games to capture the Eastern Conference Finals. Last year the NBA LIVE simulation correctly predicted Miami would advance to the NBA Finals (losing to San Antonio) and Kobe Bryant would capture the regular season scoring title."
