Damian Lillard and Big Sean

It's about attitude for Big Sean and Damian Lillard. Both young guns have plenty of it, and let it come through in their songs and games, respectively. On top of that, they've each got a srong supporting cast but still manage to stand out—with scene-stealing verses or game-winning shots.
