What do you guys think? How would this team stack up against the west today? Assume that all players are as they were in the season they won their 6th man of the year award. These are my 13, but put together any team you see fit out of all time sixth men to justify any reasoning.

Possibly win their conference, though doubtful
If someone has won it multiple times, I averaged both seasons
PPG/TRB/APG - MPG - FG% - PER

McHale - 19.1/8.2/1.5 - 32.5 - .563% - 20.4
Odom - 14.4/8.7/3.0 - 32.2 - .530% - 19.4
Kukoc - 13.1/4.0/3.5 - 26.0 - .490% - 20.4
Ginobli - 19.5/4.8/4.5 - 31.1 - .460% - 24.1
Harden - 16.8/4.1/3.7 - 31.4 - .491% - 21.1

And then the bench, I would say this team would be competitive, they would certainly shoot well. But I feel like they lack size outside of Walton, and their defense would be really poor. They would have to outscore whomever they played.

They would at least be a .500 team, but I think defense and rebounding could be a major issue.

Very good team offensevely. Defensevely they are weak imo. I'd also add Jamison and Mike Miller to the bench.

Yeah, the defense looks bad. They would probably be sixth or seventh.

because usually sixth man of the year usually goes to whoever scores a whole bunch of points off the bench

The names he listed were actual sixth man of the year award holders.
