LeBron Breaks Playoff Scoring Record in Win; Is Brad Stevens’ Coaching Overrated? | Out of Bounds

On today’s episode of #OutofBounds, Gilbert Arenas, Adam Caparell, and Pierce Simpson discuss LeBron James breaking the record for the most playoff field goals made, as the Cavs beat the Celtics 111-102 in Game 4 to even the Eastern Conference Finals. Gil explains why the loss is a bad sign for the Celtics despite Boston still having the home-court advantage, before asking if rising star Brad Stevens is actually overrated as a coach.

Continuing the LeBron talk, in “Fair or Foul?” the crew weighs in on an effort to raise $1 million on GoFundMe to commission a life-size statue of high-school-aged King James in Akron, Ohio. Is it OK to erect a monument to a player while they’re still playing? Will doing so affect whether LeBron decides to stay in Cleveland? Also, the guys give their picks for players who deserve statues, and Gil has some slander for Adam’s Knicks.

Looking ahead to tonight’s Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals in Oakland, OOB asks if Warriors superstar Steph Curry, who exploded for 35 points in a Game 3 blowout win, is officially back. The team also reacts to Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni’s eyebrow-raising comments about the pressure being greater on Golden State and Houston bringing its “A game” in Game 4. Plus, Gil explains what bench players are thinking at the end of lopsided games.

Finally, league documents reportedly show that several NFL teams consider Colin Kaepernick — who remains unsigned — a legitimate starting QB. Debate heats up as the squad asks if these documents increase the likelihood of Kaep winning his collusion case against the NFL, as well as what the case has revealed about NFL teams’ priorities.

  1. I don't see how Stevens is overrated. Just looked at how Raptors has two all stars, and got crushed by Lebron easily. Celtics is just a better home team, I'm not saying they are going to win the series with these young players, role players, but they definitely put up a good fight. Really, imagine what if Celtics makes to the final, that would be unheard of, no true star players in the lineup. Cavs should win, it would be surprised to see C's winning. Celtics record from last year and this year prove Stevens is a one of the best coaches in the league.

  2. Gil is correct about the collusion case. Even those documents can be used against Kap. Teams can say, " yes, we took a serious look at signing Kap, but decided to go in another direction for this or that reason". Let's not forget his numbers were not that good last time he played, and he had been hurt. I'm not saying this whole situation isn't messed up, but it wouldn't be too hard to come up with actual football reasons not to sign him.

  3. Gil is awesome. One minute he'll say the most ignant, trolling comments and a minute later give you a very intelligent and thought out breakdown of a situation.
    BTW, I think the owners lose more money with Kap than without him. The recent election proves there are more self-perceived "patriots" than "social activists", and they are willing to act on it. The NFL will get worse backlash from fans for letting Kap kneel, than from keeping him out.

  4. Why is Brad Stevens coaching being overrated even a conversation??? Because of 2 losses from Lebron&Cavs, that takes away from everything he has done?? I still think Celtics will win but even if they lose in 7, it still shows that Brad should've been COTY.. It's sad how no coaches gave him a single vote
