LeBron Beasts and Barely Wins; Westbrook’s Prom Fit; Can Spurs Win for Pop? | Out of Bounds

While Gilbert Arenas is off on an Agent Zero international mission, Pierce and Adam hold things down for #OutofBounds, starting with a quick tutorial on black hair care before getting into last night’s NBA playoff games. Those Game 2’s raised some interesting questions: What does it mean that the Cavs eked out a three-point win at home despite LeBron going off for 46 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals? How many fire emojis should Russell Westbrook’s tux look get in “Fire Fit”? With Karl-Anthony Towns scoring a total of 13 points in two L’s to start his playoff career, what the hell is going on with KAT? Looking forward to tonight’s playoff Game 3’s, OOB has some more questions: Will Kevin Hart’s trash talk keep 36-year-old Dwyane Wade cooking in Miami? Is the All-Star Damian Lillard we know and love finally going to show up against New Orleans? After coach Gregg Popovich’s wife, Erin, passed away yesterday, can the overmatched Spurs pull out a win for them against the Warriors? Only time will tell. The same can be said of whether Tom Brady will retire or play QB for the Patriots in 2018. In “The Step-Back,” OOB discusses whether an ESPN story about Brady having not committed to play yet is a legit story or just click-bait. Finally, following a report that “handlers” for standout Penn State running back Saquon Barkley don’t want the Browns to draft him, in “Fair or Foul?” the guys weigh in on players forcing undesirable teams to not draft them.

Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports Landed One of the Most Exciting Players in the Upcoming NFL Draft

Penn State Nittany Lions running back Saquon Barkley has joined Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports. The decision was made official on Wednesday when Barkley posted a photo of himself with Hov. 

Other notable NFL players who have signed with the sports management agency include Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette, Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley, and Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant. “It was a really easy decision,” Barkley said, per ESPN. “A lot of people came around my way, but they were focused on me and they did a great job at selling my family on setting me up for life, bringing value outside of football. I felt like it was harder for other agencies to pitch that family feel when they were working with 30 or 40 guys.”

Barkley has made it clear to every NFL team that he's more than just a threat running out of the backfield. The Whitehall, PA native has the potential to be a franchise talent for the organization willing to take a chance on him.

This year's 2018 NFL Draft will be begin on April 26 at AT&T Stadium in Texas.
