- Let’s Game Competitively (Eric Huynh)
A new sport has slowly been growing over the years (and won’t be slowing down): e-sports. Involving a lot of hand-eye coordination, game sense, and the desire to stand out, many games, such as Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, have turned from fun and casual to serious and competitive gameplay. E-sports organizations like Cloud9 or Team Liquid sign talented players and provide them the best environment possible to prepare for tournaments. Fans are able to fill huge stadiums worldwide and/or tune in from home and watch the best players battle it out for the win.
- Steph Curry (Cade Palmer)
Stephen Curry absolutely changed the game in the NBA. during this decade he won 2 MVPs and 3 championships. He did all of this while being a small NBA guard shooting more threes than anyone had even gotten close to. Since the greatness of Steph Curry has risen, the entire NBA has followed suit. Every team in the league is taking more threes than they did 10 years ago, and part of Steph’s basketball greatness falls into that.
