Los Angeles Lakers Defeat Milwaukee Bucks in the 2K Sim NBA Finals

The Los Angeles Lakers defeated the Milwaukee Bucks in the 2K Sim NBA Finals. The Lakers went down 3-1 in the series, before staging their comeback and winning three in a row to clinch the championship in game seven in Milwaukee.

NBA 2K20 cover star and 2K Sim Finals MVP Anthony Davis (2K Sim Finals: 27.6 PPG, 14.3 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.7 SPG, 1.6 BPG) shared his thoughts on the Lakers’ virtual championship.

“The Lakers winning the NBA Finals in the 2K Sim is really fun. Given the realism of NBA 2K and their past predictions, it’s cool to see our potential get recognized. It makes you excited to get back on the court and try to bring a real ring to Los Angeles!”

NBA 2K19 cover star Giannis Antetokounmpo didn’t seem to show up in the Lakers Game 5 blowout. Check out the Finals results and top stats below.

2K had been simulating the 2019-20 NBA season and playoffs since the season went on hiatus March 11. Let’s hope somehow, some way, no matter where they end up playing, the NBA season can continue their season and crown a new NBA champion, IRL.

  1. So funny they have won in a similar fashion in a few sims I have done. The crazy thing is the pattern that stands true after for some reason is they always miss the playoffs the following year. It is strange because obviously Anthony Davis is still progressing and even if Lebron is regressing he is still the all-star leading vote-getter in the West and putting up #'s but it does not translate to wins. They do lack a true PG and C but still, you think they could be a 6-8 seed with AD and Lebron.
