Report: Stephen Curry to be Named MVP For Second Straight Year
Amazing husband, father and basketball star Stephen Curry may be currently on the injured list, but the Golden State player is expected to be named League MVP the second year in a row, ESPN reported. The sports website claims that sources from the NBA confirmed this news to them.
It’s believed the announcement will be made in a few days and if it does happen it’s no surprise.
According to ESPN, Curry has had a fantastic 2015-2016 record-breaking season as his team went 24-0, on its way to beat the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls‘ 72-10 record as the winningest single season in NBA history. Other accomplishments include being the first player in league history to average 30 points per game in less than 35 minutes per game and sinking a record 402 3-pointers this season. The 28-year-old player will be the 11th player to win back-to-back MVP awards, ESPN wrote.
We’re sure Ayesha, Riley and Ryan are proud. Congrats Steph!
Again? School District Tells 9-Year-Old To Change Her Natural Hairstyle
Another African-American child has been reprimanded by school officials. The “crime”? Having natural hair.
According to a Texas NBC-affiliate, a school official pulled the child to the side claiming her afro puff ponytails resembled a fauxhawk, which is prohibited by the elementary school dress code. Her mother Marian Reed disagrees with that assessment.
“It wasn’t in a mohawk,” Reed said, “It’s not shaved on the side or anything. She was a little girl being 9 years old.”
Reed also shared that daughter was heartbroken and traumatized.
“She cried and said no one was going to want to be her friend because her hair was not as pretty as the assistant principal’s. And, as a parent, that’s heartbreaking because that’s just what God naturally gave her,” she said.
She also wishes the school had contacted her, instead of pulling her child aside and humiliating her.
“They could have called me and discussed it with me without pulling her out of class and without having that conversation in front of her because now she’s questioning her natural image. And, at nine years old, she’s going to remember that for the rest of her life,” she said.
Sigh. Why can’t they let us and our babies be great?
