Pau Gasol wins NBA Citizenship award
By Brian Kamenetzky
For the second straight season, a Lakers player has won the NBA's J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award, "given annually to the player, coach or trainer who shows outstanding service and dedication to the community."
Last year, it was Ron Artest (now Metta World Peace, of course). This season, Pau Gasol has earned the honor, the league announced Friday.
