Stephen Curry Has Returned To The NBA
Keith Allison

Among the many stars that shine in the NBA, Stephen Curry seems to be the most popular of them all. His jersey sales are the highest compared to the others and, with him and his team appearing in the Finals in the last 3 years national wide and winning two of them, he's pretty famous. Also, the fact that he's someone new and winning, adds marketing to the NBA. Sure, Lebron James, is the greatest player in this era, but to others they need someone new. In this year however Curry suffered from injuries that prevented him from appearing in most of the regular season but now in the playoffs word has it that he's cleared to play.

Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry are the Four Stars of the Warriors team, with Kevin Durant being labeled as the best player, however he is far from the most valuable. That honor belongs to Stephen Curry. His impact as the center of the Warriors' offense, a sharpshooting planet pulling defenders into his field, is what truly sets him apart from his contemporaries.

After an inconsistent regular season, the Golden State Warriors started 5-1 in these N.B.A. playoffs, erasing any doubts about their worthiness as a legitimate title contender without their point guard star. Now, as they appear to be hitting their stride, the defending champions were bolstered by the return of Curry. When he returned to face off against the Pelicans in game 2, many fans were excited to see his return and his importance showed. Being on the court, Curry changes the game. Driving lanes widen for this teammates, Open shots become much easier, which is horrible, especially when Golden State has that many good shooters and defenders must pick up the ball immediately or run the risk of Curry sniping from long range.

According to NBA.com, Klay Thompson expresses his joy in seeing Curry return. "It’s his ability to get easy baskets for us." Thompson said. "I think he uplifted the crowd as well. That was fun to hear the ovation he got. And he just bailed us out when we got stagnant. We missed him, I was happy we went 5-1 (in the playoffs) without him and it’s great to have him back." The fans were happy to see him as well, Draymond Green said "Just him walking on the floor, you know, it was kind of electric in here. Pretty fitting, for sure."

With Stephen Curry back, the Golden State Warriors look better than ever to win the championship again. However, things wont be easy. They still need to get past the New Orleans Pelicans and potentially the Houston Rockets or Utah Jazz if they do beat the Pelicans.

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.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
