LeBron MVP Over Harden?; Jordan Bad Influence on Tiger Woods? | Out of Bounds

Got an NBA foot fetish? Good, ’cause on today’s episode of #OutofBounds, Gilbert Arenas is in some flip-flops and has to explain himself to the rest of the crew. Once that’s settled, the team talks the NBA MVP Award and whether LeBron James — who says he’d vote for himself, based on his sensational, age-defying season — should win over James Harden. Gil has some strong feelings about a proposal to break the MVP into two awards, for the Best Player and Best Season. Next, with a new Tiger Woods biography claiming the young golfer was warned to stay away from Michael Jordan, OOB debates whether MJ was actually a bad influence and in any way responsible for Tiger’s downfall. Plus, Gil shares what he learned from Jordan back during their playing days and lets everyone know exactly how many points he once dropped on the GOAT. Then, with a new study calling for athletes and leagues to stop endorsing junk food and sugary drinks in an attempt to reduce childhood obesity, Gil and the guys weigh in on athletes’ responsibility as role models vs. the responsibility of parents who, y’know, had the damn kids. Gil shares his diet from his playing days, and it is…interesting. Also, there’s some controversy over chicken spots that could tear the team apart. Finally, the boys touch on Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer donating extra money he got in arbitration to charities as part of his “69 Days of Giving.” Gil sees some secret messaging in the numbers that, frankly, only make the charitable donation cooler.

  1. F all that….you're familiar w/ churches chicken but not popeyes 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤔🤔🤔🤔🤣🤣🤣🤣

  2. Definition of most valuable player
    : the player who contributes the most to his or her team's success

    Not the best player in the league, the MOST VALUABLE.

    Upfront, I'm not a LeBron, Harden or Westbrook fanboy. To be honest, I felt like Harden was robbed two years ago. Two years ago Harden's team would have performed terribly without him. Instead the MVP went to the man who could have easily been considered the BEST player in the league. Last year was Westbrook's year and I can't deny that his team would have performed terribly without his individual success, averaging a triple-double. He has performed the same feat again over 80 games this year and it should be recognized for the record setting value that it is, a record that could describe him as the BEST player in the league this year. Harden's performance this year, yielding the league's highest points per game in 72 games should be recognized as an achievement by possibly the BEST player in the league this year.
    So once again, by definition, this year's MOST VALUABLE player award goes to the man who's team would have performed terribly without him.
    I'll give you some hints.
    82 games
    3026 minutes played
    857 Field Goals Made
    2251 Points
    33 Years old
    15th Year
    …if you're a numbers guy.

  3. This nigga really said russell was the best player in the league last year. I wonder how he sees basketball. Lebron been the best player for 10 out of the 15 years he's been in the league.

  4. Lebron is basically deserving of this award almost every season, BUT Harden is having an exceptionally standout season. I agree with Arenas, sometimes he just sucks at getting his point across. In many cases, he's unknowingly arguing for the opposition.

  5. Gilbert is proof of sympathy votes. He said harden beating Lebron in every category lol.
    Ppg > harden
    Ast > Lebron
    Reb> Lebron
    Fg > Lebron
    Vorp> Lebron
    3p%> both (36%)
    Ft> harden
    And let’s not forget Lebron had two teams this season, the only star on the team for two months with no Kevin Love. Oh and let’s not for get the “bad” month in January where he averaged 23 7 and 7 on 50% shooting lol. All of that and they may end with the same or better record as last year. LeBrons MVP and it shouldn’t even be close tbh

  6. Its bullshit. Harden is having the better season. Yes Lebron has had a better career and it has been at a high level consistently but Harden has had a better season. It does not make Harden better then Lebron overall but it does this season and I think the should stop fucking my boy and give him what he rightfully deserves.
