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.

LeBron James Joins Justin Timberlake on Stage to Drink Shots

Justin Timberlake fans in Cleveland received a wonderful surprise on Saturday night during the pop star's sold-out concert at Quicken Loans Arena. Concertgoers understandably went nuts when Timberlake brought Lebron James on stage. James did not come empty-handed: He brought a tray full of shots for Timberlake and his dancers.

This may not have been a huge surprise to the superfans: Timberlake was seen at Friday's Cleveland Cavaliers game against the New Orleans Pelicans (the same game where James surpassed Michael Jordan’s consecutive double-digit scoring record). The two exchange some friendly words while covering their lips with their collars to fend off intrigued lip-readers. 

In February, Timberlake earned his fourth No. 1 album with Man of the Woods. The accompanying tour was just as successful, reaching the $100-million mark during its early stages. Arthur Fogel, president of global touring for Live Nation, said, “We've got 50 shows on sale in North America and 16 in Europe, and we're over 700,000 tickets [sold] and $100 million gross… It’s huge.”

LeBron James Surpassed Michael Jordan’s Double-Digit Scoring Record

Friday night, LeBron James further etched his name in the GOAT conversation. James drove left past New Orleans Pelicans forward Solomon Hill with approximately 6:01 remaining in the first quarter for a two-handed dunk to notch 11 points in the game. That gave LeBron his 867th consecutive game scoring at least 10 or more points, breaking Michael Jordan’s previous record, which James tied on March 28.

Officials briefly stopped the game and honored James’ accomplishment.

“It’s not like I set out to say that I want to be the No. 1 in scoring 10 points, double digits or consecutive games or whatever that and whatnot, but anytime, like, a statistical category comes up and I’m able to accomplish something like that, I mean, it's pretty incredible,” James said, in pregame comments obtained by ESPN. “I think it’s been like 11 years that I’ve been able to accomplish this feat, so I’ve been able to take care of my body, that’s one, and I’ve been around some great teammates and coaches and two organizations that have allowed me to be who I am, so that’s two, and just going out and playing for the joy of the game.”

James and the Cavs ultimately beat the Pelicans 107-102, as James finished just shy of a triple-double with 27 points, nine rebounds, and 11 assists.

Kobe Wins an Oscar; Does Kawhi Deserve a Signature Shoe? | Out of Bounds

Black Mamba strikes again! Last night, at the 90th annual Academy Awards, Kobe added to his impressive trophy collection when he won the “Best Animated Short” Oscar for “Dear Basketball.” Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew rank the win among his many accomplishments and debate if it changes the GOAT conversation between him and Michael Jordan. Next, Gil and the guys discuss whether the NFL Scouting Combine — where some prospects have performed poorly — is important or total BS, considering teams have actual game footage to help determine if players are any good. Then, following reports that extension talks have broken down between Jordan Brand and Spurs star Kawhi Leonard, Gil keeps it all the way real in “Secure the Bag” and determines Kawhi’s market value, whether or not he deserves a signature shoe, and where he’s most likely to sign his next shoe deal. Finally, with Floyd Mayweather Jr. telling TMZ he’s developing a boxing video game, the OOB boys say what they want to see in his game before getting into heavyweight star Deontay Wilder’s latest win. See why Wilder blows Gil’s mind, and not in a good way.

Drake’s Dad Cosigns LaVar Ball: ‘He’s an Outspoken Guy’

Drake's pops is officially a Big Baller. According to TMZone of music's most famous fathers is a supporter to one of basketball's most famous fathers. Dennis Graham is the latest person to cosign LaVar Ball and the Big Baller Brand. 

 

“I love [LaVar Ball] because he's outspoken,” says Graham. “He's an outspoken guy and that's what you gotta be. You gotta speak your mind.” 

While the fair share of people don't seem to share the same sentiment for the Godfather of Big Ballers, Graham has no problem with the father's headline-grabbing antics. 

“People have been kissing butts for too long. He doesn't do that. He speaks his mind,” Graham told TMZ.

The father of the 6 God definitely isn't lying either. If there's one thing that Ball does, it's speak his mind. In just this past year alone, he has been involved in an feud of sorts with the President, called out the Los Angeles Lakers head coach Luke Walton, and professed he could beat Michael Jordan in a game of 1-on-1. In fact, there isn't much that Ball won't say, which is what has made him such a polarizing figure in sports and put the entire Ball family at the forefront of sports conversations for the better part of the past year. 

While Ball has solidified his spot on the unofficial Top 10 list of celebrity fathers, Graham has also done his fair share to occupy a spot with his impeccable suit game and cameos in everything from Drake's music videos to ads for his Virginia Black whiskey (along with a fantastic slogan).

While his haters will remain abundant, a Dennis Graham cosign could do wonders for the LaVar and Big Baller Brand. Better yet, it might even plant the seed for a future Lonzo Ball/Drizzy collabo track or a BBB x Drake sneaker given the rapper's shaky situation with Jordan Brand. One can only hope.
