Porzingis Injured; Magic Johnson Giannis Tampering; John Wall Shade | Out of Bounds

Not the Unicorn!!! Knicks fans’ worst nightmare came true last night when Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL — an injury that could keep him out up to a year and change him as a player. Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew discuss the impact of the injury, including whether New York should explore trading KP. Next, they talk tampering, with the Lakers fined $50K for praise Magic Johnson heaped on Bucks superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo. Gil feels some kinda way about the situation and hilariously compares it to dating as only he can. With the reveal of fallen star Derrick Rose’s bulletproof Adidas contract, Gil explains the deal in “Secure the Bag,” from Rose’s initial leverage, to why Adidas hasn’t wiggled out, and how it affects bigger stars on the Adidas roster. One such star, injured All-Star point guard John Wall, recently responded to shade thrown his way by Wiz teammates, and the OOB gang gets into the source of the tension, as well as the effect it might have. Could the Lakers capitalize on unrest in Washington to bring Wall to LA and start building the next super-team? Finally, following an announcement that the San Francisco Giants will retire controversial slugger Barry Bonds’ number 25 — despite MLB HOF voters hating on him for his surly attitude and suspected steroids use — the guys discuss whether or not it’s time to stop being salty and just embrace the steroid era for what it was.

Nicki Minaj and Nas Have Reportedly Been Dating Since May

Nas and Nicki Minaj have been fueling dating rumors for months now. It all started with a rather cozy photo taken at Nas’ restaurant in New York City, Sweet Chick. To be fair, not much more happened over the summer, but the two were spotted again recently celebrating Nas’ birthday at The Pool Lounge in New York City with quite a lot of PDA. And now, a source has told E! News that the two Queens rappers have been dating since May.

“Nicki is not the type to date around,” the source said. “They are still getting to know each other.”

Both Nicki and Nas posted photos with each other on their Instagrams after the birthday party, with captions that at the very least suggest the two enjoy the other's company.

If this source has more or less confirmed that Nas and Nicki are dating, it would be mostly on par with what Nicki herself has been saying all year long. Nicki announced her breakup from Meek Mill in January of this year, and once the Nas dating rumors began swirling, Nicki was forced to address the rumors head-on when she appeared on Ellen in May. Nicki admitted that the she had “sleepovers” with Nas, but also insisted they had not done “the nasty.”

“I'm just chilling right now. I'm celibate. I wanted to go a year without dating any man. I hate men,” Nicki added. If they are taking things slow, the stories seem like they could match up. 

However, in case that isn’t the story you want to hear, E! News also got some contradicting news from yet another source. This other “insider” told E! News that Nas and Nicki Minaj are only close friends and have been for years.

“Nicki and Nas are just very dear friends. Nothing romantic. They've been friends forever and have seen each other's careers take off,” the source said. “Nas and John Seymour have recently just opened their second restaurant Sweet Chick in LA. The original Sweet Chick is in the LES [Lower East Side] in NYC. Nicki has been to both spots and always supportive of him and his new ventures,” the source said, as if he or she knew exactly why people are speculating about the two rappers’s relationships.

“They share a really close friendship and always has each other's back,” the source continued. “Nicki is single now and dating but nothing serious. Nas is a best friend to her so as of now nothing is stirring up. People always joke around though that they make a great couple!”

Well, there you have it, folks. Are Nas and Nicki just incredibly close friends or something more? Pick your own adventure!

R. Kelly Denies That Any of His Tour Dates Have Been Canceled

R. Kelly is crying “fake news.”

While on his way to perform in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, the 50-year-old singer recorded a message for his fans, claiming none of his shows have been canceled.

“I want everybody around the world to know, ain’t no tours canceled, man,” he said. “All right, despite what you hear, don't believe the hype. I haven’t canceled not one show. All right, I’m ready to get it in tonight.”

Last week, it was reported that Kelly’s team had canceled four dates on his After the Party Tour—one in Los Angeles, one in Dallas, and two in Louisiana. Sources close to the artist claimed the LA stop was canceled due to a scheduling conflict, but they refused to comment about the other three shows. Other sources told TMZ the cancelations were due to poor ticket sales, likely caused by Kelly’s recent “sex cult” scandal.

The controversy began last month, when Buzzfeed published a report that accused the singer of kidnapping and sexually abusing a group of young women. Kelly and one of his alleged victims Jocelyn Savage have publicly denied these claims. Savage’s parents, however, said they're convinced their daughter has been brainwashed and held against her will.

“He doesn’t let them get away,” Joycelyn’s mother, Jonjelyn Savage, said during an interview on Atlanta-based radio station V-103. “He basically isolates them from the world.”

There were rumors Kelly would pull the plug on his tour in light of the allegations; however, he later called the sex abuse claims “a bunch of crap” and told fans he had every intention of continuing the tour. He's scheduled to perform Saturday in Detroit. According to the Detroit Free Press, tonight's show has sold out.

Is This the Rarest Air Jordan In Existence?

It's impossible to single out one pair of Air Jordans as the rarest in the world. There's several one-offs, as well as a few mysterious samples that can't or haven't been explained. However, Kris Arnold can make the claim that he at least owns one of the rarest Air Jordans, and he stopped by Sole Collector's Full Size Run last week to share the story of how he obtained this likely unicorn.

During the early 90s, Arnold worked as an account executive at ProServ, a sports management firm that included Michael Jordan as one of its clients. Among the many projects ProServ worked on for Jordan was helping put together his Nike deal. Jordan had parted ways with the company a year early, prompting an office cleanout of gear that had been stored and displayed. When Arnold saw two Air Jordan sneakers on the verge of being tossed out, he asked if he could take them instead. The shoes were early production samples of the original “Chicago” and “Black Toe” Air Jordan 1s.

“I happened to be there in my office while it was happening and I said, 'No, I’ll take those.’” Arnold told us in a 2015 interview. “They were going to just throw them in the trash. That’s what they would’ve done hands down.”

Air Jordan 1 Black Toe 1985 Prototype

At first glance, one may not notice the differences between Arnold's shoes and the pairs that actually released, but there are distinguishing features. For example, the overall shape of the samples is a bit more sleek, the cut is lower, the Swooshes are larger, the toebox cut is minimal and there's subtle differences on the outsole.

To date, Arnold has received big money offers for his Jordans, but not one that has seriously made him consider selling. With that said, he hasn't completely ruled out parting with the shoes.

See Arnold discuss his rare samples in the video above, which also includes segments on the new Spike Lee x Air Jordan 1, DJ Khaled x Air Jordan 3, Lonzo Ball x Foot Locker and more. Subscribe to Full Size Size Run on YouTube and iTunes for future episodes

Skrillex Is Officially Back With From First To Last

A profile picture can tell a thousand words… and emo kids around the world right now are screaming.

From First To Last has changed their profile picture to include past member Sonny Moore, now more popularly known as Skrillex. The band recently released a new single and reunited at LA’s weekly Emonite party, and there have been rumors of a new album, though nothing substantive yet.

We actually called this about three weeks ago, after a GRAMMY red carpet interview with Skrillex, when he said, “I left the band, but I would say I’m not left anymore.” Though the profile picture change is obviously just another piece of damning evidence.
