Golden State Warriors Sweep Cavs In the NBA Finals

The Warriors continue their dominant reign on the rest of the NBA.

The Golden State Warriors continued their impressive dynasty run this past week sweeping Lebron and the Cleveland Cavaliers. This was the Warriors' third title in four years, and Golden State could possibly be the greatest team we've ever seen. While the NBA playoffs had plenty of drama and great games, the finals matchup was just what most had predicted during the last offseason and many were extremely disappointed.

It was the fourth installment of Cavs vs. Warriors and coming into the series I predicted Golden State would win in five games, they didn't even need five. I'm one of the biggest Lebron fans out there so I gave him a game won out of respect. But basketball is a five on five sport and Lebron's supporting cast just couldn't keep up with the amount of talent Golden State has.

Kevin Durant dominated this series averaging 28.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. Kevin Durant showed why after Lebron retires he might take the throne of the best player in the league. His ability to shoot over almost anybody and hit tough shots is something unheard of.

Durant and the Warriors were able to contain the rest of the Cavs but they didn't have to do much. J.R. Smith never really showed up in a positive way, although no one will forget his incredible game one mistake when Smith ran out the clock at the end of the game instead of trying to hit a game-winner because he didn't know the game was tied. Kyle Korver was his typical inconsistent self, hitting some shots but not enough for the big stage, Jordan Clarkson threw up enough bricks to build a house, and George Hill and Larry Nance were basically nonexistent.

The only player the Cavs had to support Lebron in any way was Kevin Love who recorded a double-double through the first three games and was a rebound away from putting one up in the final game of the series. Lebron averaged 34 points 10 assists and 8.5 rebounds throughout the series, which could've been his final game in a Cavs uniform. Regardless of where he goes, the city of Cleveland was given a championship and they should respect Lebron for that. No burning jerseys or trash talk on twitter.

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.

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)

Paramount Pictures

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.
