As a disclaimer: Yours truly had no idea this was a Game of Thrones reference. The Step Back’s fearless, ever-knowledgable editors Ian Levy and Scott Rafferty pointed it out.

Am I now in the market for decals to plaster up and down the tiled walls of my bathroom? Absolutely. Which probably makes Kaminsky a trendsetter.
In fact, there is no bathroom-decor innovator in the NBA who’s more dedicated and legitimate than the Charlotte Hornets’ 7-footer.
