…And Russell Westbrook is Bran Stark
"In my dream we’re trying to win the championship when the opposing team goes on a run and Coach Brooks says call a timeout. So I do. But the ref is not looking at me. He won’t call it.
What does he look at child?
"He’s looking at a… a three-eyed raven. It’s up their in the rafters. I climb up to it. But when I get there, it’s not a raven at all. IT’S… it’s–”
Yeah? Go on then. It’s what?
It’s Patrick Beverley.

…and Kobe Bryant is Tywin Lannister
"Sir Mike D’Antoni of House D’Antoni as a reward for your accomplishment of barely getting us into the playoffs we will find you accommodations suited to your name – I hear Mike Brown’s house is on the market. And when the time is right you will be given a position fit for your talents, Utah maybe. And I would let myself be consumed by MAGGOTS before mocking the Laker name by making you heir to Sir Philip’s legacy."

And “Rajon Rondo/Kevin Garnett” are “Tyrion Lannister/Bronn”
These entitled opponents are what I’m good at. Out-playing them, out-thinking them. It’s what I am. KG do you know what they say about South Beach?
“I’m sure you’ll tell me.”
They say it’s impregnable.
“Give me eight good men and three neutral refs. I’ll impregnate the bitch.”
I like you.
And Gregg Popovich is Tywin Lannister
The Admiral, Elliot, Avery all gone. Before long Timmy will be gone, sunning on a beach somewhere. It’s the Spurs name that lives on. It’s all that lives on.
Not your personal glory, not your pride… but TEAM.
The future of our team will be determined in these playoffs. We could reestablish a dynasty that lasted a decade… or we could collapse into nothing. Just look at the Lakers.
“And what of sideline reporters?”
A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinion of sheep.
And LeBron James is Stannis Baratheon
Pat Riley, you said the Heat would make me the Lord of Light? You said you saw my victory in the flames?
“I did. I still see it.”
And if the flames lie? Then I’m no better than a mercenary worshipping a fire god.
“Look into the fire LeBron. Keep looking. The Celtics, the Bulls, they are all thieves. They will bend the knee or be destroyed. Do you see? You see my king?”
I see… only Game 6.
And Kevin Durant is Jaqen H’ghar:
A man pays his debts. A man owes for what his team does for him the three quarters before. How many wins will a team need? Speak the amount and a man will do the rest?
And if a game comes when you need me at the elbow? Say these words: “Valar Morghulis.” And a man will be waiting.
A man has said.
