For the last year, the folks over at Bleacher Report have been producing an animated NBA-themed spoof of the popular HBO show "Game Of Thrones" (shoutout to Hodor), which they have cleverly titled "Game Of Zones." The episodes tie in NBA events (loosely) to some of the story arcs from the show and are all clever enough to be worth watching, even if the Trail Blazers have never been featured.

Until today! In the newest playoff themed edition of "Game Of Zones," Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum and Mason Plumlee, who play for "The Brotherhood With One Banner," a sendup of The Brotherhood With No Banners from the show to come across a couple of Timberwolves frightened and alone in the forest.

I wish I could make out the entirety of the song they sing to open the episode, though I'd settle for an explanation of the lyric, "Clyde the Glide, he lives inside, of Terry Porter's head." I'd also like a one-to-one comparison of Lillard and Beric Dondarrion, the somewhat unkillable leader of The Brotherhood Without Banners.

The rest of the episode features James Harden and Dwight Howard as defense-averse Dornish royalty and LeBron James and Kyrie Irving being attacked by Detroit's "Stone Men" while boating through Valyria. If none of that makes any sense to you, pat yourself on the back for not wasting an hour a week watching the show and roughly $50 a month for an HBO subscription.
