10. Stephen Curry

If Kevin Durant was healthy then Curry would not have made this list. The two-time NBA MVP is taking the scoring load while Durant heals up. Behind the three-point line, the man is basically unable to be guarded. As long the Warriors have Curry bet on them in the NBA finals.


9. Giannis Antetokoumpo


The Greek Freak is the best player in his series. All due respect to all Derozan and Lowry fans but Antetokoumpo is carrying his team. It is not often we see someone lead in points, steals, assist, and blocks. The only current NBA player that has done this before is The King. If the Bucks upset the Raptors it will be because of the Greek Freak.


8. Paul George


Paul George is one of the two players on this list that isn't leading in his series. Against the Cavilers no one expected them to lead and if the Pacers win a game the NBA fan-base will be thoroughly impressed. That hasn't changed the fact that Paul George is a bonafide Superstar. He hasn't scored less than 29 points in 3 games and was the only reason the Pacers had an opportunity to win Game 1.


7. Draymond Green

Don't look at Green's numbers on the offense side of the ball. He did score an impressive 19 points game one against the Trailblazers but in game two fell to a measly 6. Draymond is great because he works harder than nearly every NBA player. Green got a double-double with assist and rebounds. Defensively he has been making the Warrior's seem like they have a paint presence.


6. Jimmy Butler

Jimmy Butler is trying to be in the history books. He is putting the 8th seeded Bulls on his back, with the help of Rajon Rondo. Rondo would have easily been in this top ten but his recent thumb injury is holding him back. In both games the Bulls won, Jimmy scored 30 and 22 while shooting over 42 percent.


5. John Wall


Stop sleeping on John Wall. He is the best true point guard in the NBA besides maybe Chris Paul. He leads the east in double-doubles. Without him, the Wizards are a lottery team. He asserted his dominance over the Hawks with 32 points and 14 assists. Every night since then has been a sequel to that performance.


4. Russell Westbrook


The MVP and the triple-double machine is back at it in the playoffs. The only thing keeping Westbrook from being number one is that he isn't leading against the Rockets. The talent around him just isn't there yet. Even with a 50 point triple double in game two his team still lost. The NBA rewards winning more than a great stat line and so does this top ten list.


3. James Harden


Westbrook has been impressive but Harden is cooking it up this series. Not to mention that he is also winning the games. The man has yet to be stopped by a Thunder player. He hasn't scored less than 35 points in a game for this series. as long as he leads the series he will be ranked higher than Westbrook.


2. Kawhi Leonard


Kawhi and Draymond are kinda in the same class of reasoning for their placement on the list. They are carrying their team on defense. Kawhi is already known as the Lebron stopper and has been taking over against the Grizzlies. He is strapping up positions 1 through 5 on the Grizzlies while scoring over 30 points a game. He is the 2nd best two-way player in the playoffs right now. the best two-way player hasn't shown up on this list yet...


1 .Lebron James


This is the best two-way player in the NBA. We all know King Jame's stats but to realize why he is the best player you have to look the stats. Lebron lead a 26 point comeback against the Pacers without Kyrie or love. The best player on the floor with him was maybe Deron Williams. Lebron willed his team back to a win without most of his core. Lebron finished with a triple-double and brought his team back because he is the greatest player since Jordan.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present. Yet it's critical to understand that suicide awareness is not an annual Instagram hashtag to use and forget. Actively advocating for mental health resources, progress in education, and a broken stigma is an everyday ask — an activity that we can each participate in.
