KD and Warriors in Championship Form; Is James Harden the NBA's Best 1-o...
On today's episode of #OutofBounds, streetball legend Bone Collector joins Gilbert Arenas and the crew to discuss the NBA playoffs, with four semifinal series seemingly headed to quick ends. Kevin Durant dropped 38 points on the Pelicans as the Warriors rolled to a 3-1 series lead. With Stephen Curry only recently returned from a knee injury, is Golden State already back to championship form?
The Rockets took a commanding 3-1 lead over the Jazz in their series, thanks in large part to Chris Paul's scoring and Clint Capela's rim protection. James Harden had an underwhelming night, but with ankle-breaker Bone Collector in the house the squad debates whether Houston's herky-jerky superstar is the best one-on-one player in the league right now.
Looking forward to Game 4 and potential eliminations in the Celtics-Sixers and Cavs-Raptors series, the panel predicts if Philadelphia and Toronto will lose and start their summer vacations. Plus, Gil and Bone break down the problems with Ben Simmons’ and DeMar DeRozan's games, and ask whether Toronto should blow their team up if/when LeBron bounces them for a third straight year.
In "Fire Fit," the guys rate the outfits athletes wore to the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. Which athlete had the best outfit at the Derby: Von Miller, Jason Witten, or Laila Ali? Plus, a curveball contestant you have to see.
The Bucks plan to interview Spurs’ assistant coach Becky Hammon for their head coaching job, making her the first woman ever to interview for such a position. Will she land that gig — or any other NBA head coaching spot — in the near future. In a heated debate, Gil explains what he thinks will be the biggest obstacle for Hammon at that level.
Finally, in "On This Day..." OOB looks back to May 7, 1994, when the Nuggets beat the SuperSonics 98-94 in OT to become the first eighth seed in NBA history to eliminate a one seed in the playoffs. The guys rank the feat among the all-time greatest upsets.
