Steph Curry is (almost) perfect

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Golden State’s Stephen Curry has been about as good offensively as anyone we’ve ever seen this season, shooting 50-percent from the field and 45-percent on threes on his way to a unanimous second MVP award. And to celebrate Curry’s historic season, the folks at 2K Sports have teamed up with Steph’s shoe sponsor, Under Armour, for a quick tribute. In honor of Steph’s jersey number 30, for 30 hours only, Steph Curry’s in-game rating will be bumped to a 99, the highest in game history.

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — The 2015-16 NBA season tips off tonight, with the defending champion Warriors beginning their title defense against the Pelicans (TNT, 10:30 p.m. ET). And while we don’t know for certain who will win the championship this season — it’s why we play the games!! — the people at 2K Sports tried to figure it out.

Last year they had the Warriors winning the NBA Finals over the Cavaliers in six games, which is exactly what happened.

Using the powerful engine that drives the popular NBA 2K16 video game, according to 2K the Warriors will repeat as NBA champs, besting the Cleveland Cavaliers in a 7 game series.

Other things the 2K season simulation predicted: Oklahoma City winning the West in the regular season; Chicago and Miami finishing second and third in the East; Kevin Durant winning MVP; Anthony Davis winning Defensive Player of the Year; D’Angelo Russell winning Rookie of the Year.
