    Default Nate 6 man Award

    Terrible timing with this loss, but...





    Sixth Man Award, Two Trimesters In



    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] The most feared sixth man in the game and the likely winner of this award in the spring both reside in the Southwest Division. But both [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (shin) and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] (hand) are injured, too.
    So we're adopting the same approach here that we used in the preceding MIP discussion, focusing more specifically on this chunk of 27 (or so) games so we can recognize little Nate's monster February.
    The combination of Robinson's five 30-point games this month, including a 41-pointer against Indiana, along with the Knicks' pesky presence in the race for a playoff berth in the East make him the most legit choice for the season's middle third. And we say so even when the sixth-man field has no shortage of recognizable names -- [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] -- and when it would be even deeper if not for the injuries in Lakerland and Milwaukee that have forced [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] back into starting jobs.
    Yet you can't expect to see Robinson that high in April, provided that the two Texas supersubs are back reasonably soon. Ginobili ranks as one of the greatest game-changers off the bench in NBA history and will always be favored for this award. Terry, meanwhile, is having his best scoring season in a decade as a pro (19.9 ppg) coming off the bench for the Mavs. So the rim gets raised in a big way for Krypto-Nate when those two return.

    Nate deserves it. But I kinda hope he doesn't get it. If he gets it, some team will throw a lot of money at him this summer. It'll automatically raise his price.

    I just hope he doesn't get it because it will encourage him to try to layup over 3 guys who are all a foot taller than him even more.

    i hope he gets it. The lil man deserves some recognition. He kinda reminds me of Sprewell. A ticking bomb.
