CLEVELAND– If you’re not caught up on season 6 of “Game of Thrones,” stop reading now.

While waiting to find out who they will play in the NBA Finals, Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert showed some love for a fallen “Game of Thrones” character.

Both posted photos on their Instagram accounts with the caption, “Never forget. Hodor.”

We already knew they were big fan of the HBO show. While warming up for Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals, Shumpert was caught saying, “Hodor. Hold the door” in between shots.

Love even brushed a question on team chemistry after Cleveland swept Atlanta because he wanted to avoid spoilers.

“‘Game of Thrones is on tonight. I’m trying to get home and watch that,” Love said, while LeBron James and Kyrie Irving laughed. “Jon Snow is back.

Game 1 on the NBA Finals will be Thursday night. If the Warriors win the Western Conference, they series will start in Oakland. If the Thunder wins, the Cavs will play in Cleveland.
