Ever since Steve Kerr took the job to be head coach of the Golden State Warriors in 2014, they have become the dominant team in the Western Conference. In his first two seasons, the Warriors won the western conference championship twice, won an NBA championship, and had a historic 73 wins in the regular season. As for this season, there were recent questions surrounding the team's ability to win the West for the third year consecutively, but they silenced those questions without superstar Kevin Durant big victories last week over the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets, the two teams that are trailing them in the Western Conference.

After losing their big free agent signing in Durant to injury on February 28th, the Golden State Warriors went through a bad stretch to their standards by going 2-4. The Splash Brothers of Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry combined to shoot under 30 percent from outside during that stretch. However, Curry and Thompson would turn it around by shooting over 40 percent from outside and ignited the Warriors to go on a winning streak that has now reached double-digits and have extended their lead as the first seed in the western conference.

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Kevin Durant could return right before the end of the regular season and the Warriors will most likely finish as the first seed for the third consecutive season. Once the playoffs begin, the Warriors can again show why they are the favorites to win the western conference for third consecutive year and possibly win it all.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
