Officials say the death will "kill its trade-in value."

BOSTON, MA – NBA 2K9, this year’s standout NBA video game, was found dead Sunday morning mere hours after wrongly predicting the outcome of the Bulls-Celtics game 7.

While the cause of death is still under investigation, local officials suspect suicide. The video game disc was found in its master bedroom with a bullet wound to its main printable area.

“He’d made a few poor predictions in the past, but he never let it get to him,” said NBA Live 09, NBA 2K9’s considerably less-popular business rival, but long-time friend. “I mean we’re only as good as our coding. Take me for example, I couldn’t predict a playoff round if I had a gun to my head.”

“That was inappropriate. Please don’t quote me on that,” added NBA Live 09.

NBA 2K9 leaves behind its son, College Hoops 2K8, and wife, Top Spin 3.

“NBA 2K9 is in a better place now,” said College Hoops in a touching eulogy. “I like to think it’s in heaven with All-Pro Football 2K8.”
