Warriors watch themselves in animated Game of Thrones parody

Friday October 23rd, 2015

Warriors coach Steve Kerr is facing a tough problem, trying to keep his players motivated after having grabbed the NBA championship last season, so he decided to reach out to the NBA/Game of Thrones parody from Bleacher Report “Game of Zones” to make an All-Warriors edition.

Warning: the video contains brief explicit language

Kerr showed the clip to his team and filmed their reactions as they were transported to Westeros to defend against the hordes of contenders gathering to take back the title, and poke a little fun at themselves and the rest of the league in the process.

The series began during the 2014 playoffs and has run intermittently since then, but this is the first custom episode requested by an NBA team.
