The Golden State Warriors Named Sports Illustrated’s 2018 Sportsperson of the Year - Blogged by: @RaquelHarrisTV ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sports Illustrated will have to change their “Sportsperson of the Year” award to “Sportspeople of the Year,” as the title this year has been given to the Golden State Warriors. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Sports Illustrated announced on Monday that the Warriors would be receiving this year’s Sports Illustrated "2018 Sportsperson of the Year" honors. This makes the team the most recent group of athletes and coaches to have impacted the social status of sports, and the communities. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While the award was made to highlight one induvial instead of an entire team, this isn’t the first time a team has been honored as Sportsperson of the Year. According to CBS, the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team, the 1999 World Cup-winning U.S. women's national soccer team and the 2004 Boston Red Sox also received the honor, which has been handed out annually since 1954. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Golden State Warriors have become a true force to be reckoned with. They’ve won their third NBA Championship in four years, and they set the league's single-season wins record by going 73-9 during the regular season a few years ago. When SI decided to include the entire team, it said Golden State has “always been the most delightfully viewed through a collective prism.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “For all the individual brilliance of Steph Curry—a selection whom few would have protested—the Warriors have always been most delightfully viewed through a collective prism. There have been superteams that have forced us to reimagine how the game is played, but none perhaps in a generation, maybe two, are so beautifully choreographed as the Warriors. At the Dubs' most golden, their movements and pieces seamlessly blur into each other to the point where it impossible to distinguish the magic of one player from another, even magic so singular as that of Curry or KD.”

Kim Kardashian Says Kris Jenner’s Disapproval of Her Ecstasy Use Helped Her Kick The Habit - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Late last month, #KimKardashian revealed on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” that she was high on ecstasy on two of the craziest moments in her life - when she married Damon Thomas in 2000 and when she filmed a sex tape with Ray J three years later. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since then, despite Ray’s refutation in regards to their 2003 sexcapade, the social media extraordinaire has spilled even more tea about her drug-ridden past, specifically how her mother helped her kick the habit. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I would tell my mom everything,” Kardashian said in an interview with Busy Philipps on “Busy Tonight,’ “We always had such a close relationship. So I would come home and be like, 'Oh my God, Mom. I did ecstasy last night.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I remember this so clearly,” Kardashian said, adding that she was “so young.” “So she was just so upset thinking I was going to turn into something and be this crazy drug addict. And I was just like, ‘You know what, she’s so right. I’m so over it. This is so not me.’ And I just never did anything again.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, in her revelation, Kardashian failed to provide a timeline. But in November, a source told PEOPLE that the socialite is far removed from those days, saying, West “definitely does not do drugs and hasn’t for years - and even then she barely dabbled.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Here’s the thing,” Kardashian continued on ‘Busy Tonight,’ “People that were close to me that obviously know that life of mine, they’re like, ‘I can’t believe you said that.’ And I was like, ‘Well, I mean, I never really hide anything.’” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s just weird to people: I've done ecstasy, but I don’t drink, I don’t smoke weed, I don’t do anything,” she said. “So it’s weird to have done that.”
