Agreed. The microwave 6th man is dying out man. Bench units that move the ball are much more valuable than hero ball 6th men, I.E. Lou Will, Jamal, Swaggy P etc.
On another note, my guy Will Barton is balling out in the 6th man role. 14/5/2 on 50/40/90. Hope he can keep it up. Too bad 6th man doesn't go to teams with losing records.
If Iggy keeps playing at his current pace, he deserves it.
I talked about the microwave 6th man role sometime ago. You really never see championship teams benefit from those type of players. They usually hurt your team more often in the playoffs than help (at least the inefficient chuckers). When it was guys like Harden, Ginobili, Odom, etc. these guys helped make others better on the floor. The award should be geared towards those type of players than the JR's and Lou Will's. Its just a terrible display of basketball when watching them go 1 on 5 in the playoffs.
