The simultaneous airing of Game 7 of the NBA Finals and ‘Game of Thrones: Battle of the Bastards’ had viewers picking between the LeBron James and Steph Curry matchup or the battle between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton.
At first glance it may be hard to draw similarities between the most famous basketball player and a fictional Game of Thrones character. When you look deeper into the men’s characters, besides the fact that these two men defeat incredible odds to bring honor back to their hometown, you will learn that LeBron James is the Jon Snow of basketball.
Take a look at some of the similarities:
1. Both men are from freezing wastelands (Ohio and Winterfell)
2. On Sunday, they competed in a winner-takes-all battle for title of NBA champion and Control of the North.
3. Both men had to go out of town for their career.
Only one thing is for sure, both James and Snow have their audiences counting down the days until next season.
