Kwasi Enin - The NYC student was accepted to all eight Ivy league schools - Harvard, Yale, Brown, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, Princeton and Cornell. Always good seeing the youth succeeding, especially a fellow New Yorker. Hopefully, this kid can inspire others.
Adam Silver - For bringing down the hammer on Donald Sterling. Sure, it's late, but he made sure to finally begin the process of getting rid of a lingering and potential crippling problem.
NBA Playoffs - The NBA gets another "Up" nod this week with it's playoffs which have been awesome. Tons of Game 7's, dramatic finishes (Damian Lillard, anyone?!), real bad blood rivarlies (Clippers/Warriors) and of course, averting the Donald Sterling tragedy. And it's just begun.
1. Brazilian Soccer Fan Killed - Everyone knows soccer fans are nuts, but throwing toilet bowls - yes, toilet bows! - during games and killing others is beyond ridiculous. This culture has to end.
2. Flight MH370 - Its been awhile since we've heard any updates, but the longer this continues, the stranger this mystery becomes. After all, a plane just disappeared!
3. "Activists" - I'm growing pretty weary of those who look for these racially-centered stories to act on. Not that it's a bad thing, but the majority of the time they only use it for face time. We saw many of these talking heads resurface due to the Donald Sterling story. The rhetoric they spew is tired. Want to be "active"? How about looking to do things to better ALL people, and not simply focusing on one agenda to further your benefit.
