Your 6th Man Vote?
Again my vote may be strange to some of you, but on this one I am going with Lou Williams. This year coming off the bench Lou has been playing his best ball IMO, out of his 5-year career with similar numbers to last year. Lou has season averages of......13.7 PPG 3.4 APG .833 FT% 34.3 3P% .401 FG%
Not a bad call but George Hill is 11.2 PPG 2.4 APG 2.9 RPG 38.7% 3P% 45. FG%
for the best team and has stepped up in big games.
Got to go with Jason Terry. The man is an animal and has stepped up huge since butler has gone down.
and even though Lou does terrific some games, he's also lost some games for us with VERY stupid plays (pumpfakes and trying to make people bite but it doesn't really work, not running the clock off in late game situations, and most importantly, not PASSING the ball and trying to play super hero ball) When he's on, he can score but a 40% fg percentage isn't cutting it for me. If you wanna pick a Sixer for a bench player, you gotta give credit to Thad Young. 12 and 5 rebs in a 25 minute run and shoots 54% (bad 3point percentage though). He brings high energy off the bench most nights.
I also like Big Baby, Hill, Terry, Shannon Brown, or even Jamal Crawford for potential candidates for 6th man
def. would be the consensus 6th man of the year with 15 and 9 rebounds per... But I'm not sure what the limit is for a player to be considered for 6th man and the number of starts a bench player is allowed to have. my guess would be like 10-15 games tops in an 82 game schedule
If he can...Lamar should win it.
If not....Jason Terry?
Nope, not Odom now. I told my brother the moment he didn't make All-Star that he was going to let it get to him and effect his play. Sure enough he has done that. I went to the Bobcats game the other night and sat 9 rows back. I swear it felt like He didn't do anything and seemed quite inviible. He's had 3 straight bad games which is more than he has had all season. He seams to be a little to aggressive now as well forcing up dumb shots and making lazy passes. Hopefully he gets it together, but I doubt it. If he can keep it together then yeah, but overall I'm seeing it as a fall off.
My vote goes to Jamaal Crawford. He's really making things A LOT easier on Joe.
Lamar Odom sprang to mind when I read the topic title but as he has started 32 games this year I figure that rules hm out. Jason Terry is a solid choice as always as is Jamal Crawford. George Hill isn't such a spectacular 6th as Manu Ginobli has been but should be considered.
Thinking away from the obvious I'll throw in Serge Ibaka who has been a good defensive force for the Thunder from the bench mainly this year, his team mate James Harden has been solid but has not had to put up the weight of points that some 6th men have had to.
