LeBron and Cavs Unfazed by Lance Stephenson; Raptors Falling Apart Again...
On today's show, Gilbert Arenas is back from China and dishes to the #OutofBounds crew about his travels as Agent Zero, International Man of Mystery. Able to put aside their understandable jealousy, the team talks Sunday's busy slate of Game 4's.
The Bucks tied their series with the Celtics in Milwaukee, but considering the C’s have been without stars Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, should Giannis and company feel good about this being a competitive series? And, following Marcus Morris complaining about getting a tech, has playoff refereeing been any better than it was in the regular season?
The Spurs avoided elimination with Warriors stars Klay Thompson and Draymond Green shooting terribly, but is the feel-good moment worth a delay of the Warriors-Pelicans series Gil wants to see? The Raptors went to Washington up 2-0 and looking dominant, but now they're heading back to Toronto tied 2-2 with the Wizards. Given their history of playoff inconsistency, how worried should the Raptors be?
Lance Stephenson's antics haven't proved effective in stopping LeBron and the Cavs, but are they actually hurting the Pacers? Plus, how many fire emojis should Cleveland get in "Fire Fit" for their uniform black suit look?
Then, looking forward to tonight's Game 4's, OOB asks what the Timberwolves blowing out the Rockets in Game 3 means for the series and specifically for Karl-Anthony Towns, who finally came alive after struggling in his first two playoff games. The Thunder are in a 2-1 hole and have been letting rookie Donovan Mitchell and Ricky Rubio — who's not known for his scoring — go off on them. What is OKC doing wrong and how can they stop Pretty Ricky? The Pelicans completed a sweep of the Blazers on Saturday night in a playoff twist, and while Anthony Davis was dominant as usual, he got a lot of help from Jrue Holiday, Rajon Rondo, and Nikola Mirotic. Are the Pelicans a threat to win it all now? And what should Portland do in the offseason?
Finally, in "Fair or Foul?" Gil and the guys weigh in on Dana White and the UFC possibly signing disgraced NFL lineman Greg Hardy — who has an ugly history of domestic violence — as a fighter. Beyond the moral question, how would signing Hardy affect the UFC brand?
