According to the world of video games, the Phoenix Suns will win that elusive NBA title this coming season for the NBA. A virtual season was run on Electronic Arts game NBA Live 08. In this simulated season the Suns defeated the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals to capture the title. The Suns were heavy favorites in real life last year, and should continue to be favorites again this year along with Western Conference teams the Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs.

Also according to the NBA Live virtual season:

"Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat averages 31.6 points a night to earn the league MVP title. Chicago Bulls forward Ben Wallace earns defensive player of the year, while Kevin Durrant of the Seattle SuperSonics receives rookie of the year and Randy Foye of the Minnesota Timberwolves collects the most improved player trophy.

The Suns post a 58-24 regular-season record to finish atop the West, and go on to knock off San Antonio in seven games in the Western Conference finals.

The Celtics rebound from their last-place finish in 2006-07 with the addition of Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen in the off-season, finishing atop the East at 49-33. Boston beats the New Jersey Nets in six games in the Eastern Conference final." (Source: Canadian Press)
