After the Washington Wizards swept the Toronto Raptors in the first round of the NBA playoffs, Paul Pierce taunted Raps fans with a Game of Thrones-themed photoshop.
Washington earned its first four-game sweep in franchise history with a 125–94 win on Sunday night and Pierce celebrated by posting a few memes on social media.
First, he usurped the iron throne from the HBO hit Game of Thrones, proclaiming himself King in the North.
Then, Pierce took aim at Toronto's No. 1 fan (and notorious bandwagoner) Drake.
Pierce made his distaste for Toronto clear right from the outset.
"We haven't done particularly well against Toronto, but I don't feel they have the 'It' that makes you worried,'' Pierce told ESPN's Jackie MacMullan before the series started. "There isn't a team I look at in the Eastern Conference that makes me say, 'They are intimidating, we don't have a chance.'"
After the Wizards jumped out to a 2-0 series lead, Pierce said wanted to close the series out at home. "I don't want to go through customs no more," he proclaimed.
