Pau Gasol wins the 2011-2012 J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award

4 years ago

A journey filled with award and achievement, this well-deserved man is Pau Gasol.
For the past seven years, Gasol has served as a UNICEF ambassador, traveling the world during the off-season working with programs aimed at nutrition and education for children. He even volunteered to sing How to Save a Life, for the Play List with the A-List in El Rey Theater in order to raise funds for UNICEF. Gasol also released an iBook this year in three different languages.
Gasol should be considered an angel because he frequently visits Childrens Hospital of Los Angeles, not to take photos with fans or kids, but to visit and talk to them. He attended medical school at the University of Barcelona and maintains a strong interest in that field.
Previously Metta World Peace was awarded, but its reasons are mainly about what he does in his non-basketball time. The elbow on Harden was bad, but World Peace still supports the same charities and does the same community service. Players may mess up sometimes because were all human, were not perfect, but I still consider World Peace to be a good role model in terms of non-basketball activities. Congratulations to both Los Angeles Lakers players for winning the Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award!
