View Full Version : Can Jamal Crawford REALLY Be Considered for Sixth Man of the Year?

Over and over again I hear people saying Jamal Crawford is a shoe-in for Sixth Man of the Year.

But, can he really be considered? Yes Crawford is seen as a super-sub / sixth man, but he's started 23 of 64 games (35% of games). I was looking at past winners and MOST winners were strict sixth men and started 0 games all season. Jason Terry started 11 of 82 games in 2008-09. Ginobili started 23 of 74. Those were the two highest starting totals in the past few years.

Who knows if JCrossover will continue to come off the bench or if he'll start again like before his calf injury.

Personally, I'd rather consider Markieff Morris (0 starts), Taj Gibson (7 starts) for Sixth Man.

And don't get me wrong... I love Jamal Crawford, but I just think starting 35% of games is too much.

The eligibility criteria is anyone who has played off the bench more than starting is eligible.

I understand that but can you legitimately consider someone who has started 35% of games and possibly up to 50% by the end of the season?

What should that ratio be then?

Why so mad? Lol


Also you do realize the only reason why he has started those games is due to JJ Redick's injuries.. He is a 6th man that got thrown in a starters role as a fill in. He clearly meets the criteria here. No issue to be had then.

He is a legit bench player. Our starting SG has been hurt so he was asked to fill inů I don't see the issue here. Now we punish a player because he's asked to step in to a starters role due to an injury of another player? Ridiculous..

you can make the argument the other way,why punishing guys who are 6th men in favor of someone who's become a starter.under he way things are set up,i have no issue with jamal winning it.but the criteria for who's eligible should be redefined to better reflect the spirit of the award

Odom started a significant number of games when he won. Also part of being a good bench player is the ability to start when your team needs you to and not lose effectiveness. Stepping in for reddick helped his case IMO.

In that case, can't Gerald Green be considered as well?

So you realize people are considering Crawford for 6th man.

So you must also realize that Jamal Crawford can REALLY be considered for 6th man of the year.

Now, you have to live with that.

Seems like Manu has the best PER and is on the best team in the NBA. Manu deserves it over all them players.

Crafword doesn't deserve it imo. He's JUST A SCORER. That's it. Yeah it's a big part of the Clips and I love Jcross's moves but Taj Gibson and Vince Carter are more than just scorers. I'd give it to one of them. If Dallas ends up a better seed otherwise Gibson gets it for 3rd seed (I GUESS) even though the East sucks.
I'm not saying Crawford shouldn't get it but he's no shoe in.

Ginobili as well. He's a true sixth man his whole career. I just like the VC pick because it's impressive to see him go from ball in hands every play superstar player to 6th man playmaker/spark plug who does more than score

Markieff Morris is going to give every 6th man a run for their money. And he's started 0 games this year.
