Bleacher Report is not a complete stranger to creating original videos, but I’m not sure if they have ever done anything like this before. This hilarious cartoon spoofs Game of Thrones by adding a healthy dose of television’s other current must-watch offering: The NBA Playoffs.
The NBA Playoffs and Game of Thrones might not seem like a compatible match at first, but on further inspection the parallels are there if you want to look for them. In both we have high drama as teams from various reaches of the realm vying for the ultimate prize. Both have the ability to make you feel excited or sick, and if you ask ten people who their favorite is, you are likely to get ten different answers.
I might be stretching here a little bit, but it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that we have another Game of Thrones spoof, and it is hilarious. That is what really matters.
Since its posting yesterday, it has been viewed over 200,000 times and has over 5,000 likes. With the dual headed monster of NBA playoffs and Game of Thrones, it isn’t hard to see why its gaining popularity so quickly and is worth a watch if you like either of those things.
