“This is a huge moment for black people,” Serena Williams said.
On today's episode of Out of Bounds, the crew opens with a video of Sean Kingston claiming he and Serena Williams had a fling. Fake news or nah? They also debate if Kyrie Irving is overrated and catch up on recent updates on the LiAngelo Ball arrest story. Gilbert Arenas is still unimpressed by Lonzo Ball, Mia Khalifa is not a fan of Jalen Ramsey or conservatives, and the two have a heated back-and-forth on whether Grayson Allen still has a chance of making it to the NBA.

UPDATED 3:21 p.m. ET: It sounds like Drake might be out here diversifying his investments.
— Drake Direct (@DrakeDirect_) August 15, 2017
Images showing an advertisement for what looks like a restaurant/sports bar named Pick 6 with the OVO insignia over it have appeared in Toronto's financial district. Pick 6's location used to house the Houston Bar and Grill. There hasn't been an official announcement or confirmation from Drake or his camp that whatever that is opening will in fact be a restaurant. But, it does seem like it's a good guess.
This wouldn't be the first time Drake has been connected to the restaurant business. Back in 2015 Drake came up with the name for chef Susur Lee’s upscale comfort food eatery Fring's in Downtown Toronto. He even DJ'ed for the opening party, which was attended by high profile guests such as Serena Williams, Jaden Smith, and his mother Jada Pinkett.
Drake is also investing in the green tea company called MatchaBar. The company, which is partnering with Whole Foods for distribution, is having its ingredients sourced from a family farm in Nishio, Japan. Matcha is a type of green tea leaf that is finely ground into a powder and contains a decent-sized dose of caffeine.
Shortly after these rumors started taking off, a source close to the situation confirmed to Complex that claims of a new restaurant are simply not true.

Stephen Colbert and John McEnroe discuss those widely panned Serena Williams comments.
Serena Williams is currently going through one of the happiest moments of her life. She announced her engagement to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in late December. Four months later, she revealed on Snapchat that she and Ohanian were expecting their first child. When she won the Australian Open and set a new record for most Grand Slam titles with 23, Williams regained the No. 1 spot in the women's division. So, can someone explain why would anyone want to rain on her parade? Well, let's ask Ilie Nastase.
ESPN is reporting that Nastase, a former U.S. Open and French Open singles champion, was heard saying, “Let's see what color it has. Chocolate with milk?,” when discussing Serena's baby. Earlier today, Williams responded to Nastase's remarks on Instagram.
“It disappoints me to know that we live in a society where people like Ilie Nastase can make such racist comments towards myself and unborn child, and sexist comments against my peers,” Williams wrote. Serena even borrowed some words from Maya Angelou’s poem “Still I Rise” in her response. “Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom?” she wrote. “You may shoot me with your words…you may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I’ll rise.”
Nastase is currently under investigation for her comments, and could face disciplinary action from the International Tennis Federation.

Jackie Robinson helped break down the racial barrier in Major League Baseball 70 years ago. To celebrate the progress he helped usher into professional sports, every player will wear the number 42 on their uniforms tomorrow on the anniversary of Robinson's first game. In honor of Robinson's contribution to the game, Nike's made “Equality” T-shirts with the number 42 on the back that they're giving to their athletes.
Nike made headlines earlier this year with its “Equality” campaign that starred LeBron James and Serena Williams that promoted diversity and acceptance, in wake of the controversy that surrounded this year's NBA All-Star Game, due to North Carolina's Bathroom Bill.
Get a look at the T-shirts, packaging, and Nike's statement for Jackie Robinson Day below.
