NBA 2K12 Predicts Brooklyn Nets 2012-2013 Season. Surprising Results

Okay, I did some simulating in 2K12. I didn't do too much with the team.

WARNING: THIS IS FOR THOSE WITH A SENSE OF HUMOR. THIS OBVIOUSLY ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ THE NOTATIONS I INCLUDED FOR THE STRANGE FACES ON THE ROSTER. I HAD TO GET CREATIVE WITH THE ROSTER BY BRINGING IN GUYS WHO COULD BE THE EQUIVALENT OF OTHER GUYS.

Here is our depth chart. I had to get a little creative with the backups since we're not sure who is going to be in those spots:

PG: Deron Williams / Mario Chalmers (b/c of Tyshawn comparisons) / Gaines (min players)

SG: Joe Johnson / Marshon Brooks / Gerald Green / Anthony Morrow (need bodies, only played 1mpg)

SF: Gerald Wallace / Grant Hill (needed a backup, Green isn't considered a SF, and Hill only has a 67 rtg)

PF: Ersan Ilyasova (even if we can't get him, he can = Teletovic) / Kris Humphries / Reggie Evans

C: Brook Lopez / Marcus Camby (vet min.)


Here's how the squad performed (fairly realistic from a stats perspective)

  • Deron Williams: 20.9 ppg / 6.8 apg (low) / 2.3 rpg
  • Joe Johnson: 19.8 ppg / 4 apg / 3 rpg
  • Brook Lopez: 19.0 ppg / 9 rpg / 1.5 bpg
  • Gerald Wallace: 12.1 ppg / 7 rpg / 1.9 spg
  • Marshon Brooks: 8.1 ppg / 3.1 rpg / 3.1 apg
  • Kris Humphries: 6.9 ppg / 8.6 rpg / 1.5 bpg
  • Grant Hill: 5.4 ppg / 2.4 rpg
  • Gerald Green: 5.2 ppg / 1.4 rpg
  • Ersan Ilyasova: 4.9 ppg / 2.3 rpg
  • Anthony Morrow: 1.7 ppg

Now... here's where the computer surprised me...

Irony? We swept Dallas in the Finals (Yeah...Kidd, Dirk, Roddy, Marion and Delonte West made it...) and went 7 games with the Knicks in the ECF
