In this clip find out some fan favorites and see how Kendrick has touched his fans...one even cried while explaining her admiration for him and his music. Check it out.

The winner will be chosen at random from my twitter replies.

The day before these two games they couldn't both win, so the upstart Clippers upset our Lakers. Both teams took care of business at home last night though. Lakers knocked off their rival the Thunder and earlier in the day the Clippers' Blake Griffin went for a career high of 47pts, not to mention 14 rebounds as he went for another consecutive double-double. Crazy huh?
