I don't know why I named a fanpost as "part 2", because it's not really a series nor have that many people read it. Nonetheless, I named it "part 2", and if you haven't already read my introduction to the NBA 2K13 Sixers Simulation (which you probably haven't) you should read my introduction to the "series" here.
Currently at the start of the 2015-2016 season, the NBA looks entirely different than it does in reality at the moment. It's all unrealistic, but it's hilarious and just like I said in my first 2K13 post, I would be remiss if I didn't share the details.
To start, the Sixers won the NBA championship of the 2014-2015 season, and that year Andrew Wiggins was NBA MVP as well as NBA Finals MVP. In the Eastern Conference Finals, the Sixers beat an Atlanta Hawks team consisting of Andre Iguodala, Andrew Bynum (who bolted from New Orleans after the 2013-2014 season) and Lou Williams. The Sixers defeated Chris Paul's, yes, Chris Paul's Houston Rockets in the NBA Finals.

2. Also in the 2014 offseason, Evan Turner, who is now an all-star, raked in a five-year, $79 million deal, also from the Milwaukee Bucks. So, the Bucks now owe $114 million dollars to Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner over a five-year period.
3. During the 2015 offseason, Doug Collins decided to return to the NBA to coach the Brooklyn Nets.
4. Andrew Bynum, after a one-year stint with the New Orleans Hornets, signed a three-year deal worth $60 million with the Atlanta Hawks.
Around the NBA
2. After being ignored in free agency for three years, Nick Young inked a three-year, $9 million deal with the Knicks.
3. Dwight Howard signed a 4-year, $72 million deal with the Detroit Pistons.
4. Chris Paul signed a contract identical to Dwight Howard's, but with the Houston Rockets.
7. In 2014-2015, Josh Smith finished third in the MVP voting behind Andrew Wiggins and LeBron James; alongside Andrew Bynum, he averaged 21 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocks on 52% shooting.
9. During the 2014 offseason, LeBron signed just a two-year extension with Miami.
11. During the 2015 offseason, there were 18 coaching changes. Among them, aside from Doug Collins, Frank Vogel left Indiana for the Phoenix Suns, George Karl abandoned Denver to coach the Orlando Magic, Mike Woodson left New York to coach the Kings, the Pacers hired Rick Carlisle away from Dallas and the Nuggets hired Erik Spoelstra away from Miami.
12. In 2014-2015, Michael Beasley averaged 19 points and 8 rebounds and was an all-star.
I plan on simulating another 5-10 years in to the future to figure out how many banners the Sixers raise and see how Spencer Hawes, Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young's careers end up in Milwaukee. Also, to see if Damien Wilkins lands another job in the NBA before he calls it quits after years of hard work and tremendous play.
