Drake NBA’s Most Annoying Fan?; Jrue Holiday Takes Over; Harden’s Step-Back | Out of Bounds

On today’s show, Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew get right to the important stuff — Denzel Washington movies. What’s to debate? He’s a national treasure and can do no wrong. Moving on to sports, with three NBA playoff Game 2’s played last night, Gil and the guys get into the biggest stories. Has Raptors ride-or-die Drake — who was popping much sh*t to the Wizards — officially become the NBA’s most annoying celebrity fan? Will small-market Milwaukee ever put the pieces around Giannis to become a serious title contender? How are the Pelicans winning without Anthony Davis being the go-to guy? Looking ahead, OOB dives into tonight’s slate of Games 2’s. How can the Cavs fix their suspect D? What version of “Playoff P” will Paul George bring when the Thunder host the Jazz? How can the Timberwolves stop James Harden? And is his step-back legal? Moving to another star-studded hoops league, OOB caught up with players and coaches at the BIG3 Draft and talked about changes to the league, how players are approaching season two, physical play, trash talking, and more. Plus, Hibachi explains what it will take for him to join the BIG3. Finally, in “Fair or Foul,” the team weighs in on president of adidas North America Mark King saying the company would want to sign polarizing QB Colin Kaepernick IF an NFL team signs him. Is it just lip service? Taking advantage of his name? And how would actually signing him affect business? Last but not least, Gil inserts himself into other people’s personal lives, talking about Candace Parker’s $400K alimony payment.

Klay Thompson Unaware He Has Critics; Paul George Gives Himself Nickname | Out of Bounds

On today’s show, Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew get started by talking trolls and how to defeat them. One person who’s apparently not bothered by trolls or anyone else’s opinion is Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who claims he’s completely oblivious to critical comments. The guys question the truthfulness of that statement and debate whether it’s better to ignore comments or use them as motivation, and Gil shares his old strategy for blocking out noise during the season. While Klay ignores everyone, Pacers star Victor Oladipo says he’s motivated in his playoff series by the shade Cavs owner Dan Gilbert threw him last summer. Were those words worthy of becoming bulletin board material? Also, with Oladipo pointing out the small-market struggle for recognition, Hibachi breaks down how you get attention in the NBA and imagines what would happen if Paul George left OKC for the LA spotlight. Sticking with PG13, in “Fair or Foul?” the squad weighs in on George giving himself the nickname “Playoff P.” Is it cool cause he actually backed it up with his performance? Plus, Gil shares the horrendous nickname he once gave himself and why it didn’t work out so well for him. Then, with legendary Steeler linebacker James Harrison announcing his retirement, OOB remembers his greatest moments, from his play to his prison workouts, and Agent Zero reveals how a pro sports career affects family life. Finally, in “The Step-Back,” the panel presses pause on the “controversy” surrounding injured Pelicans forward DeMarcus Cousins missing his team’s playoff game, seemingly to hit Coachella. Gil provides some perspective on that, as well as some strip club knowledge for innocent young Pierce.

Nick Young’s Wild Playoff Outfit; Cowboys Cut Dez Bryant; Pop’s Kawhi Shade | Out of Bounds

On today’s show, Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew kick things off by weighing in on whether or not they’re about that Coachella life. Plus, coming off his kids’ AAU tourney in Las Vegas, Gil explains why he’s the king of Sin City. Then, after the first weekend of NBA playoff action, OOB discusses the biggest stories, including the Pacers waxing the Cavs in Cleveland despite LeBron’s triple-double. Out West, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said star forward Kawhi Leonard continues to be absent because his personal medical team has not yet cleared him to return. The guys ask how this is affecting his relationship with teammates and the franchise, and Kawhi critic Gil has an unexpected take. In epic fashion news, Warriors guard Nick Young showed up to Oracle Arena for Game 1 of Golden State’s playoff series against the Spurs wearing a silk robe and boxers. The squad reacts to the stripped-down fashion statement in “Fire Fit,” and Gil shares the exchange he had with Swaggy after he saw the look. Moving to the NFL, the panel take sides after the Dallas Cowboys released star receiver Dez Bryant and things got messy between him and America’s Team. Can revenge motivate Dez for the entire next season? Finally, in “On This Day…” the crew remembers the 15th anniversary of Michael Jordan’s final NBA game — a 107-87 Wizards loss to the 76ers in which 40-year-old Jordan scored 15 points. With everyone slurping LeBron for balling out at 33, Gil makes clear what King James needs to do to be in Jordan’s rarefied air.

Russell Westbrook Averages Triple-Double (Again); NBA Playoff Predictions | Out of Bounds

On today’s show, Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds boys catch NBA playoff fever! But first, they discuss a curious cosmetic/medical trend that shows just how lost, vain, and celebrity-obsessed humanity is. With the 2017–18 NBA regular season in the books, OOB takes a closer look at the Eastern Conference matchups. Gil is intrigued by one in particular, but also throws water on the idea of another potential “upset” and dissects the sure-to-be-hyped LeBron-Lance Stephenson showdown. Plus, the guys make their picks for which team is coming out of the East. Before discussing the Western Conference playoffs, the team reacts to Russell Westbrook grabbing a career-high 20 rebounds last night to become the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double twice. A hand wave from one host leads to a heated defense of Brodie and his hustle. Plus, Gil explains why the triple-double average was MVP-worthy last season but not this one. Next, OOB breaks down the playoff matchups in the West, and Gil makes a case for the Spurs against the Warriors before throwing water on Pierce’s Rockets-T’wolves intrigue. As with the East, the crew shares their picks for the team that will make it to the Finals, then adds who they think is winning it all. Finally, in “Fair or Foul?” the guys weigh in on the Miami Marlins claiming foreign citizenship in the Caribbean to wiggle out of a lawsuit with local Miami and Miami-Dade governments. Everybody feels strongly about the story, but Gil’s take is…something else. Following that up, the squad asks how new Marlins owner Derek Jeter is doing so far. Let’s just say life isn’t as charmed as it was in Yankees pinstripes.

Guest Stephen Jackson Unfiltered; Donovan Mitchell Trolls ROY Comp Ben Simmons | Out of Bounds

On today’s show, NBA champion and captain of the BIG3’s Killer 3’s Stephen Jackson joins Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew to speak unfiltered like never before. To start, they weigh in on Tristan Thompson’s Kardashian baby mama drama — true G League levels of cheating. After that, the team reacts to controversial NFL lineman Richie Incognito retiring because his organs are “shutting down” and stress is “killing” him. Stack explains what real stress is, why he had to be forced out of the Association, and the weed-smoking cycle of NBA players. Then, after Jazz phenom Donovan Mitchell wore a hoodie trolling his Rookie of the Year comp Ben Simmons, OOB assesses the troll job as well as the players’ respective ROY arguments. The vote is split, and Gil and Stack make an unconventional argument that turns the debate on its head. Next, the panel responds to Pat Riley’s comments that LeBron James would have won “five or six” more championships and become “the greatest player in the history of mankind” if he’d stayed in Miami. Is Riley right, or going senile at 73? Plus, Gil and Stack explain how players rank — and differentiate between — all-time greats like LeBron, Jordan, and Kobe. Finally, with the small-market Memphis Grizzlies reportedly valued at a whopping $1.3 billion, the guys see if that adds up and name the team they’d most like to own. While market and personal fandom are factors, for one member of the team the strip club scene is as important as anything else. The things you learn on OOB….

McGwire’s Hypothetical Home Runs; Belichick Sons Gronk; Stupidest Athlete Crimes | Out of Bounds

On today’s episode of #OutofBounds, Gilbert Arenas kick things off with some words for Ray Lewis, who felt the need to preach about Odell Beckham Jr.’s relationship with God. After that ethering, with coaches and the media making a big deal out of voluntary NFL workouts and players either attending (Odell Beckham Jr.) or not (Khalil Mack), OOB breaks down the actual significance of offseason workouts in “The Step-Back.” Gil, who always says what he means, has a problem with the very concept of “voluntary” in the NFL. Sticking with football, the team tackles some Patriots drama following a report that coach Bill Belichick “chastised” star tight end Rob Gronkowski in front of the team last season over his TB12 workouts. Is it the beginning of the end for New England’s empire or just a smart coaching tactic? Next, the crew reacts to admitted steroid user Mark McGwire saying he could’ve hit 70 home runs clean. Let’s just say the panel is skeptical on several fronts. Plus, Gil and Pierce break down the fascination with hypothetical sports debates and Gil shares his favorite one. Finally, after police at LAX arrested Packers receiver Trevor Davis for making a joke about packing a bomb, OOB runs down the top five stupidest reasons that athletes have been arrested. With so much f*ckery in sports, making this list is harder than winning a championship. And as Gil gives a heartwarming explanation for his Cavs sweatshirt…Adam quickly corrupts the moment in true degenerate gambler fashion.

Shohei Ohtani Crushing MLB; Paul George “Can See” Staying in OKC | Out of Bounds

On today’s episode, Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds boys kick things off by talking about fights. Next, they react to Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina trying to fight Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo for referring to him as “motherf*cker” while arguing a called third strike with an umpire. Are athletes becoming too sensitive? Gil certainly thinks so, and explains why he was never phased by anything anybody said about him. Then, with Japanese pitcher and slugger Shohei Ohtani starting the season super hot for the Los Angeles Angels, OOB looks at how difficult it is for foreign players to adjust to a new league and culture. Gil, who had international teammates in the NBA and also played abroad in China, breaks down the differences between coming to the U.S. and going overseas. According to Hibachi, one is much more difficult. Following that, the squad looks at how the Celtics used and traded Isaiah Thomas — and the subsequent injuries to Boston’s stars — and debates the existence of sports karma. There are strong feelings on both sides of this divide. Plus, Gil gives his prediction for a Celtics team trying to win a playoff series without Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward. In “The Pull-Up,” OOB closes the show out by offering career advice to Paul George, who recently said he “can see” himself staying in Oklahoma City and isn’t basing his free agency decision on whether or not the Thunder win a championship this year. Gil vehemently objects to reporters even asking about his future, but also has a sober analysis of where PG will take his talents next season…. And finally, Gil manages to disrespect a young fan of the show, so there’s that.

Gil describes being called one for simply being a basketball player, plus breaks down his IG comments and DMs. In “The Step-Back,” Gil and the guys zoom out on Johnny Manziel quotes that seemingly blame the Cleveland Browns for his NFL failure.
