Their sigil may look more apt for the Milwaukee Bucks, but the latest NBA/Game of Thrones mashup from Bleacher Report nails the Pacers: They are House Stannis.
Now, I’m no reader of fantasy books, so I don’t know what is to come for Stannis Baratheon, the Red Woman, and Onion Knight Ser Davos. I have a sneaking suspicion that they may regain some glory as soon as this weekend.
But so far, they have been the “rightful” heir to the crown that simply couldn’t get any support. And when they did mount their best challenge, they were beaten back by a combination of better strategy and opponents more experienced in playing the game of thrones.
Since then? They have mostly sat around praying for a savior (like the Pacers, with the Lord of Smashmouth) to win them what they so naively believe is their birthright. While setting people, even some in Stannis’ own family, on fire.
And, yes, Lance marooned on a rock trying to blow out wildfire is the funniest moment of this whole video.
FYI: The video above is actually the second “Game of Zones” episode. You can watch the first one below (though it includes no Pacers’ references).
