The Trail Blazers’ practice on Sunday featured a free throw drill that appeared to be inspired by an iconic scene from HBO’s Game of Thrones series. The video from the Blazers’ social media team starts with what seems like a routine drill, but a miss from Zach Collins quickly revealed that this was not your typical shooting exercise.

Collins’ miss was greeted with shouts of “SHAME” as he was directed towards coach Jim Moran and an empty chair. The end of the video features Blazers’ newcomer Jaylen Adams highlighting the GOT-inspired free throw exercise.

It wasn’t exactly a horrific march through King’s Landing toward the Red Keep, but it was a way to lighten the mood during practice.
