This year’s NBA Finals are way, way, way up. With the Cleveland Cavaliers boasting a 2-1 lead against the Golden State Warriors, the anticipation is sending spectators into a nail-biting frenzy every game. But Bleacher Report is here to bring some comedic relief with their “Game Of Zones” parodies.
The series is a play on HBO’s stellar show, Game Of Thrones, but instead of fictional characters, the sports site created cartoon-like images of the NBA’s finest from Doc Rivers to Kobe Bryant.
For this week’s episode, Drake’s likeness appears as a singer in a tavern littered with pro-athletes. The OVO leader croons a turnt-down rendition of “Know Yourself” which takes aim at the Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry. “Kyle Lowry goes through the six with all his bitter woes/ And so he choked, and so he choked/ That lord of Toronto,” belts out the Raptors’ ambassador. In April, the Raptors lost their chance at the Larry O’Brien trophy after the Washington Wizards beat T-Dot in the first round of the playoffs.
The mandolin-strumming “6 God” later switches tunes and sings about the Boston Celtics’ magical 2008 championship title, but to the chagrin of Rajon Rondo, who was traded to the Dallas Mavericks after nine seasons with the Celtics.
Tonight’s game 4 matchup between the Cavs and the Warriors tips off at 9pm ET on ABC, but get your chuckle on with the latest from the Game Of Zones.
