One of the nicest things about NBA 2K17 is its ability to simulate games. Players can easily move from one game to another, that is if they're too lazy to play a match. Regardless, this is still an interesting feature to utilize. Yeah, something like using it to predict the contenders of the NBA Finals. Or perhaps, by forecasting the best possible DraftKings lineups.
Forbes very own Brian Mazique did this to the game. He wanted to test and see just how accurate NBA 2K17 could be when it comes to predicting the aforementioned. (Well, he should remember the prediction it did last year, only to know the Warriors lost). The particular day would be for March 7, which he points out to only have three games on the schedule. Hence, it would only create fewer boxes in terms of scores to cycle through it.
Apparently, the results were quite surprising. That despite the flexible schedule, it says otherwise. There's basically a lot of work to be done. For instance, instead of Russell Westbrook owning the Portland Trail Blazers, it was Damien Lillard who went home with the W. The latter didn't only make some solid scores, but he also did big in terms of rebounding and assisting.
The Wizards, on the other hand, were in an odd situation in NBA 2K17. As many would expect, it should be John Wall carrying the weight of the world on his shoulder. But hey, that time around, it was Bradley Beal and Bogdan Bogdanovic, newly acquired players, who went on to save the day.
Simply put, the simulation process on predicting the DraftKings lineup are a bit interesting yet odd. That's because one can't surely expect for such things to happen -- most especially in real life. Well, good thing it's just a simulation of sort.
