Shaquille O'Neal is a national treasure and these are his top 5 moments

Shaq is a national treasure. His work on and off the court from gold bond to Shaq Soda is unmatched. Here is a quick guide to the best moments from a national hero and our future president.

5. Having Shareef O'Neal

Not only is Shaq one of the greatest basketball players of all time, his son will be too. An absolute beast, Shareef is about to bring UCLA basketball back from the doldrums left behind by Li'Angelo Ball.

4. Inside The NBA

Undoubtedly the greatest pregame show on television, Inside The NBA plays as a comedy show just as well as a sports show. Nothing brings me more joy than watching him and Barkley yell at each other about nothing. It's like a battle to decide who can be the loudest, dumbest, out of shape ex-NBA player.

3. Asking Kobe How His Butt Tastes

The greatest moment in his rap career, Shaq absolutely flamed Kobe Bryant. Pusha T and Drake can step aside because this was the greatest diss track of all time. Shaq carried Kobe to his first three titles and then roasted him when he left. What a legend.

2. Winning 4 NBA Championships

Shaq is in an elite club of winning 4 championships. He was the best player on 3 of those teams and asserted himself as a dominant force that no one could stop. By the third one with the Lakers, Shaq was showing up out of shape and feuding with teammates but still coming out on top of the NBA world.

1. His Acting Career

Championships are cool but no basketball player could pull of the incredible movie career of Shaq. His starring vehicles "Steel" and "KaZaam" would have won Oscars if it weren't for anti-athlete bias from the academy. "Steel" was the real inspiration for the super hero craze and "Iron Man" before "Iron Man."

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
