Cavs Getting Swept?, Can Houston Win Game 2?, New Michael Jordan Doc | O...







On today's episode of #OutofBounds, sports announcer and commentator Mauro Ranallo joins Gilbert Arenas, Adam Caparell, and Pierce Simpson to discuss the Celtics beating the Cavs despite a monster game from LeBron James to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference Finals. With King James clearly giving his all — returning from a scary head shot to post a 42-point triple-double — the panel points fingers at the teammates who need to step their game up.

One player who would be excused if he were underperforming is Celtics guard Marcus Smart, who revealed that his mom is undergoing chemotherapy treatments for bone marrow cancer but wants him to remain focused on basketball. Mauro — who had to do a broadcast after losing a close family member — and Gil talk about trying to perform at your best when you're enduring a personal tragedy.

Looking ahead to tonight's Game 2 between Houston and Golden State, OOB asks if the Rockets can “withstand” Kevin Durant going off, as head coach Mike D'Antoni said they could after he torched them for 37 points in Game 1. Are the Rockets capable of shutting down one or more of the Dubs' other stars? Plus, the panel makes their picks for the game.

Then, with the NBA Draft Lottery over and the Suns now in possession of the first overall pick, the crew debates whom Phoenix should draft at No. 1. Also, Gil explains why the NBA's new draft lottery format designed to eliminate tanking won't actually stop the league's annual race to the bottom.

After ESPN Films and Netflix announced Tuesday that they will be releasing a 10-part documentary series on Michael Jordan in 2019, the guys ask if it will reveal anything we don't know about MJ or just show younger generations why he is the GOAT over LeBron and Kobe. Plus, Gil lets Mauro know why Jordan's return to play for the Wizards wasn't the typical case of an athlete being unwilling to move on from their playing career.

With his own documentary, Bipolar Rock 'N' Roller, premiering next Friday, May 25, on Showtime, Mauro explains the motivation behind the project, which candidly discusses his mental health issues. Plus, Gil opens up about his battle with depression and how he learned to be himself.

Finally, with philanthropic hedge fund manager and outspoken Trump critic David Tepper expected to buy the Panthers for a record-setting $2.2 billion, OOB asks if he is precisely the kind of owner the NFL needs now. Does politics even matter when it comes to the bottom-line business of NFL ownership?

Celtics Embarrass Cavs in Game 1; Is Marcus Morris the Real LeBron Stopp...







On this episode of  #OutofBounds, Gilbert Arenas, Pierce Simpson, and Adam Caparell discuss the Celtics' thorough beatdown of LeBron James and the Cavs in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Marcus Morris — and the C's team defense — limited King James to 15 points on 5-for-16 shooting with seven turnovers. Is Morris the real LeBron stopper? Plus, the rest of the Cavs took and missed some terrible shots, so do the Celtics have the defensive game plan to shut Cleveland down, or was the loss just a poor shooting night and LeBron feeling things out? Also, Gil reacts to LeBron's remarkable photographic memory and ability to recall games play by play.

In "Fire Fit," the panel grades LeBron's Game 1 Thom Browne fit to determine if he managed one win for the day or caught two L's. See how many fire emojis the crew awards him.

Warriors superstar Steph Curry recently credited Rockets All-Star Chris Paul for mentoring him the summer before he entered the NBA. Looking ahead to tonight's Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals, Gil and the guys discuss what impact CP and Steph's relationship will play in the series, as well as which guard needs to have a greater impact.

In "Fair or Foul?" the team weighs in on the Raptors “Coach of the Year” recipient Dwane Casey after the Cavs swept his team out of the playoffs for the second consecutive year. Did Toronto do him dirty? And is the future brighter for Dwane Casey or the Raptors? Also, with Metta World Peace saying Drake would be a good coach for the Raps, the crew debates that seemingly absurd statement.

Finally, OOB predicts the future of Philly after head coach Brett Brown said the Sixers “need help to win a championship.” Who would be the best pickup for Philly, in terms of both talent and fit: LeBron, Paul George, or Kawhi Leonard? And will they land any of them? Also, with a big-time signing, would the Sixers become a desirable destination for vets on veteran minimum contracts or mid-level deals? See what Gil has to say about that.

Guest Arian Foster Talks Transitioning to Entertainment Bobby Feeno and ...





On today's episode of #OutofBounds, former NFL running back turned rapper, actor, and podcaster Arian Foster joins Gilbert Arenas, Adam Caparell, and Pierce Simpson to wrap up the Eastern Conference Semifinals and look ahead to the next round of the NBA playoffs.

On Wednesday night, the Celtics beat the Sixers 114-112 to advance to the Eastern Conference Finals, where they'll take on LeBron James and the Cavs. The panel talks about Boston's young stars and what they've shown advancing far in the playoffs without their team's two biggest stars. Knocking off King James is a much bigger challenge, and Gil breaks down what could be a matchup nightmare before everyone makes their series picks. Plus, with Philly starting its summer vacation, Gil and Arian highlight what 76ers star Joel Embiid needs to work on in the offseason to take the next step in his career.

After retiring from football, Arian Foster has devoted himself fully to podcasting and making music. Rapping as Bobby Feeno, he's released his well-received debut album, Flamingo & Koval, as well as Becoming Bobby Feeno, a Tidal/Uninterrupted documentary series about his transition to music. Arian shares the keys to successfully crossing over from sports, the feedback he's gotten from established artists, and the reason he didn't start putting out music while he was still playing in the NFL. Gil reveals how a teammate of his balanced basketball and DJing.

Tiger Woods recently defined greatness as prolonged superiority when asked about LeBron James, who's heading back to the Eastern Conference Finals for the eighth straight season at age 33. Gil and Arian give their views on athletic greatness and whether it requires longevity. They also get into a passionate debate about Steph Curry when Gil refers to him as a "regular guy." Plus, Gil names some great players who didn't achieve as much as they could have because they lacked the will and heart, contrasting that with a fascinating story that illustrates Floyd Mayweather's insane dedication to being the best boxer of all time.

Finally, in "Top 5," after the Mets were penalized for screwing up their lineup cards and accidentally batting out of order, the panel breaks down The Top 5 Worst Blunders in Sports History. Gil's inclusion is a head-scratcher but he makes up for it by sharing the behind-the-scenes story of one of his most painful losses.

Joel Embiid Swagger Back, 76ers Avoid Elimination; LeBron James Sweeps R...







Published on May 8, 2018
On today's episode of #OutofBounds, Gilbert Arenas, Pierce Simpson, and Adam Caparell discuss the 76ers avoiding elimination against the Celtics, with T.J. McConnell having a career night and Joel Embiid getting his trash-talking swagger back. Was the Game 4 win a turning point for the Sixers?

Also, the LeBron James-led Cavs completed a series sweep of the Raptors with a blowout. Did Toronto stars DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry give up? And do either the Celtics or Sixers stand a chance against Cleveland in the Eastern Conference Finals?

Looking forward to tonight's games, will the Rockets close out the Jazz in Houston? And was Game 4 proof that — unlike in past years — the Rockets can win when James Harden has a subpar performance now that he has CP to help carry the scoring load and Clint Capela holding things down on D?

Next, will the Warriors close out their series with the Pelicans? What can New Orleans do to win and force a Game 6 back in Louisiana? Plus, with a Rockets-Warriors Western Conference Finals seeming inevitable, Gil questions whether coach Mike D'Antoni can make playoff adjustments to hang with Golden State.

In "Fair or Foul?" the team weighs in on the Pistons firing head coach and president of basketball operations Stan Van Gundy. Gil breaks down what his old coach is like and why there's a limit to how long he can work with a team. Also, the crew debates whether the timing of the firing is foul, and if it was wrong to saddle the next coach and executive with the roster and contracts that SVG was responsible for. Plus, will the Pistons be improved and make the playoffs in the next couple years?

After Kylia Carter, mother of former Duke basketball star Wendell Carter, compared the current system of NCAA basketball to slavery, Gil and the guys respond to the analogy, as well as the idea of free labor and education in college sports.

Finally, the team reacts to Icelandic powerlifter and "Game of Thrones" actor Hafthor Björnsson, who plays “The Mountain” on the hit HBO series, winning the World’s Strongest Man competition. Hibachi turns the heat way up on powerlifting as a sport before sharing what he would do if he were as big and strong as the athletes who compete by pulling trucks and lifting boulders.

Jemele Hill Talks Trump's Kaepernick Invite, Twitter Threats, and Rocket...





Published on May 9, 2018
On today's episode of #OutofBounds, Chief Correspondent and Senior Columnist with ESPN’s The Undefeated Jemele Hill joins Gilbert Arenas, Pierce Simpson, and Adam Caparell to discuss NBA playoff action and the intersection of sports, politics, and social media.

The Rockets advanced to the Western Conference Finals by beating the Jazz 112-102 in Houston. After Chris Paul took over with 41 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists, the panel breaks down how CP3 changed his game to boost the Rockets.

The Warriors also advanced to the WCF, defeating the Pelicans 113-104 with a balanced offensive attack from Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. As good a team as the Rockets are, is there any way they can beat Golden State's Hamptons 5/Death Lineup and depth?

Looking ahead to tonight's Game 5, when Boston will look to close out Philly at home, OOB debates whether the young 76ers — who got their swagger back in their first elimination game after seeming overwhelmed in Beantown — will overcome the hostile playoff atmosphere to force a Game 6. Also, Gil questions Philly's use of Markelle Fultz and Jemele explains why she's not surprised that the Celtics have performed so well in the playoffs.

In "The Step-Back," the panel talks about the ugly side of sports social media after comedian Andrew Polk tweeted that he hoped Draymond Green would get shot in the face. Jemele — who's no stranger to social media controversy — breaks down the line you shouldn't cross. Gil explains why some athletes should respond to haters online and others should not. Plus, everyone shares the ugliest thing someone has said about them on social media.

After President Donald Trump reportedly gave approval to invite Colin Kaepernick to the White House for a series of conversations on race involving athletes and musicians, Jemele takes issue with the motivations behind the move. The crew asks what Kaepernick would gain or lose by accepting the invitation. Also, Gil identifies the Trump critics whom the Donald doesn't go after on Twitter and why.

Finally, OOB discusses the NFL denying running back Mike James’s request to use cannabis as a painkiller instead of powerful, addictive opioids. Jemele offers insight into the league's continuing resistance to the plant, and Gil explains the difference between treating pain with weed and getting high.

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.

Jazz Ground Rockets; Grading Lonzo Ball; NBA's Top 5 Annoying Celebrity ...





On today's episode of #OutofBounds, NBA front office veteran and ESPN analyst Amin Elhassan joins Gilbert Arenas and the crew to make sense of Utah's surprise 116-108 win in Houston. Gil and Amin break down the defensive accomplishment of the Jazz — yes, even with James Harden posting 32 points, 7 rebounds, 11 assists — and debate whether Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni is a good playoff coach or not.
Looking forward to tonight's Cavs-Raptors Game 2, the panel predicts whether LeBron and Cleveland can grab another win in Toronto before wondering what's next for troll Drake after his Game 1 altercations with Kendrick Perkins. Speaking of Perk, Amin gives the man his due for one of the NBA's all-time best trash-talking quotes. Also, in the Celtics-Sixers series, can Philly's young stars overcome the moment and Brad Stevens’ masterful coaching of the injury-depleted Celtics?
While Drake is getting all the attention after his tough talk with Perk, he's not the only celebrity NBA fan who gets on people's nerves. In "Top 5," the panel runs down the Top 5 Most Annoying Celebrity NBA Fans, and even throws in a special honorable mention that's sure to piss a bunch of people off.
In a recent ESPN interview, the Lakers’ Lonzo Ball gave himself a letter grade for his rookie season. Taking it a step further than his on-court performance, OOB grades Zo as a player, brand, and rapper, and measures it all against his immense hype. His report card may shock you.
Finally, with the Knicks reportedly trying to finalize the hiring of a new head coach this week after interviewing many diverse candidates — some extremely head-scratching ones among them — Amin explains how New York's process is atypical for the league. He and Gil clarify what the woeful Knicks need to overcome a history of incompetence before everyone makes their picks for whom the team should hire.
