Golden State Warriors Are Taking Over

A Golden State dynasty is emerging and people should be grateful

We are witnessing a dynasty and people should stop complaining.


In the NBA, team dynasties are considered to be almost the complete favorites whenever that team reaches the Finals. However every time that team wins the championship the years later become a lot tougher. Other teams are designing ways to stop them, and another factor is losing the mentality of winning consistently. Golden State has faced these types of adversary and with this year's recent championship they are emerging as a dynasty. So people should be grateful to see it regardless of whether you like them or not.

Despite sweeping the Cavs in the Finals, the Warriors had a much tougher time in this regular season and in the Western Conference Finals. One of the main reasons why this team couldn't finish number one in the West standings was due to the injuries of their star players. The Warriors' many injuries and their disenchantment with their 82-game regular-season obligations were real. Kerr's health problems were also a big factor of the Warrior's regular season struggles. The Warriors also might never admit it publicly, but they were concerned at various points of the season and experts questioned if the team could even get to the finals. Yet they endured like true champions should and even if the people didn't believe in them during the regular season, look what they did in the playoffs.

The Warriors had an easy path up until the Western Finals where they faced off against the number one spot team; the Houston Rockets. Down 3-2 the team had to dig deep within themselves to avoid elimination. Keep in mind that even though Rocket's player Chris Paul was out in Game 6 and 7 the Rocket's team still had the Warriors on the ropes, but they never gave up and continued to fight on. Eventually they overcame arguably the team's biggest adversary in this championship run and went to beat the Cavs in a rather predictable outcome by many fans and experts. No one should be complaining about this at all. Before Durant came to the Warriors, Stars were drafted by the Warriors themselves. The great Kobe Bryant stated that "But if you build the team organically, that dynasty team tends to stay longer." This just proves that the Warriors team has done things the right way and adding Kevin Durant into the mix is just icing on the cake. It's unfair but that's what happens when team management plays the patient card correctly.

The Golden State Warriors have come a long way from decades of mediocrity, misery, and being the utter laughingstock of the NBA. A third title in four years that cements their status as a dynasty and if people think that this dynasty will go away then think again. Kevin Durant plans to re-sign with the Warriors and keep this going. Curry is signed through the next four seasons, Draymond Green for the next two seasons and Klay Thompson for next season. If they find more solid role players that can fit their style of play, who knows how many championships they can win.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
