There has always been quite a bit of crossover between sports and HBO’s Game of Thrones.
That’s somewhat due to the shared audiences — a lot of men between 18 and 49 — but also because of Bleacher Report’s brilliant Game of Zones, in which Pat Riley used to make appearances as Tywin Lannister, before Tywin died on a toilet.
Sunday, the #BattleForWinterfell brought out all the best comparisons and memes.
Here were a few, mostly NBA-related, because that league runs social media.
Most, naturally, were about Arya Stark.
