Gilbert Arenas makes a triumphant return to #OutofBounds with absolutely no chill! The team kicks things off with the 2018 NCAA Tournament bracket, discussing which schools were done dirty, which ones are likely to pull of upsets, and which team the guys like to win it all. Gil takes issue with the NCAA letting teams like struggling Oklahoma slide in on the strength of early wins and explains why Sooners star Trae Young is in trouble come pre-draft workouts. Next, OOB tackles vengeful cornerback Richard Sherman, who signed with the rival 49ers shortly after the Seahawks cut him. Gil weighs in on the revenge factor, incentive-based contracts, fans burning jerseys, and how the 49ers view Sherman’s outspokenness in the wake of the Colin Kaepernick protest drama. In other NFL news, the crew reacts to the viral video that appears to show superstar Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and an IG model with a blunt and some coke. Opinions vary on what the substances are and what the fallout may be, and Gil shares a weed-tastic story of an old girlfriend to illustrate his point, plus breaks down why you’ll never see him in a viral video. Finally, following Grayson Allen’s latest dirty dickhead incident (add a hip-check to his list of trips), bitter Duke hater Gil and the boys list the most annoying Dukies ever. The words are strong and so are the cases they make!
Spurs doctors have reportedly cleared Kawhi Leonard to play but the star guard is holding himself out and Coach Pop doesn’t expect him to play again this season. Gilbert Arenas and the #OutofBounds crew discuss Kawhi’s lengthy absence with a quad injury and what it’s revealed about him and the Spurs. Next, Gil and the guys react to Anthony Davis’ assertion that the Pelicans would have run through the Western Conference playoffs if fellow New Orleans big man Boogie Cousins hadn’t injured his Achilles. But seeing as Boogie is in a wheelchair now…are the Pels’ wings clipped? Moving to the NCAA, in “The Pull-Up” Gil gives career advice to Trae Young, the Oklahoma guard whose fire freshman season has cooled TF off. Finally, with a report that the Warriors and Kings will play a preseason game in Seattle, the OOB gang wonders if and when the Emerald City will get the Sonics back, before the conversation gets messy determining which cities without an NBA team deserve one and which NBA cities should lose theirs.
