The San Francisco Giants are 2012 World Series Champions, winning it all for the second time in three years by sweeping the Detroit Tigers.
It was a wild playoff ride for the Giants, as the team had to come back from down 0-2 to the Reds in the NLDS and a 3-1 deficit in the NLCS versus the Cardinals just to make it to the World Series.
Here’s an MLB 12: The Show reenactment of the last pitch in Game 4 of the World Series mixed with the Fox play-by-play call from the actual game.
LeBron James can finally call himself an NBA champion.
After experiencing NBA Finals heartbreak with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007 and the Miami Heat last year, James’ efforts against the Oklahoma City Thunder helped him earn not only his first NBA title, but also Finals MVP.
With the Heat up 3-1 in the series, James dominated Game 5 with 26 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds in a 121-106 rout. Chris Bosh had 24 points and Dwayne Wade chipped in with 20.
To commemorate the Heat’s victory, I put together an SGS Fan Trailer highlighting the biggest plays of Game 5 using NBA 2K12 footage with audio from the actual broadcast.
I couldn’t help it. I had to do it. With Linsanity taking over the NBA over the past week, it’s only fitting for me to create an NBA 2K12 version of the biggest play of Jeremy Lin’s career.
With the game tied at 87, Lin hit a last second three point shot to give the New York Knicks the victory over the Toronto Raptors. It was the fifth straight win for the Knicks.
Here’s the final play according to NBA 2K12. Feel free to share the video and leave your thoughts in the comments!
On a related note, a new roster update was released today for NBA 2K12, boosting Lin’s overall rating from 69 to 75.
With Super Bowl XLVI upon us, it’s only fitting to simulate this epic matchup between the New England Patriots and New York Giants with one of the greatest football video games of all time in NFL 2K5.
Many experts have predicted this game to be a close one between both teams, however this particular simulation bucks that trend. ESPN’s Chris Berman breaks it down in the video above.
I’ve also been recreating the best plays of the 2012 NFL Playoffs using NFL 2K5, which you can view here.
The New York Giants are going to the Super Bowl after a critical fumble by Kyle Williams put the G-men in prime position to win 20-17 in overtime against the San Francisco 49ers.
Williams was stripped of the ball by New York’s Jacquian Williams on a return just over five minutes into overtime, which set up the game winning field goal by Lawrence Tynes.
Here’s the game winning kick according to NFL 2K5, with audio from the actual Fox broadcast.
The Baltimore Ravens run to the Super Bowl ended in heartbreak, as kicker Billy Cundiff missed a game-tying field goal in the waning seconds against the New England Patriots.
With 15 seconds to go, Cundiff’s 32 yard attempt sailed wide left, giving the Pats a 23-20 victory and a trip to the Super Bowl.
Here’s an NFL 2K5 version of how the play went down with audio from the actual CBS television broadcast.
The Grab. The Throw and Grab. The Catch III. Whatever you want to call it, this single play is what many are calling one of the biggest plays in San Francisco 49ers history.
After the New Orleans Saints pulled ahead 32-29 with 1:37 remaining, Alex Smith drove the 49ers down to the Saints 14 yard line. With nine seconds left, Smith silenced his critics with a single throw, completing a touchdown pass to Vernon Davis to win the game.
Here’s an NFL 2K5 version of The Catch III with audio courtesy of KNBR’s Ted Robinson and Eric Davis. Keep in mind the latest roster update doesn’t include some of the players in the actual game, but I tried my best to mimic the actual play.
In one of the most memorable NFL playoff games in recent history, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow shocked the world by beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Wild Card game with one throw in overtime.
The game was 23-23 going into OT, but the tie was short lived as wide receiver Demaryius Thomas scored on the very first play, running 80 yards for the game winning touchdown.
Unfortunately the celebration was short lived, as the Broncos were eliminated in the next round by the New England Patriots.
Here’s how the play would have played out in NFL 2K5. Although the latest roster update isn’t fully accurate and I was unable to mimic Thomas’ stiff arm during the play, I tried to emulate the situation as close to the real thing as possible.
Expect more NFL Playoff SGS Fan Trailers in the next few weeks, with a NFL 2K5 version of “The Catch III” by San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis coming later today.
