Shaky Ankles: A Coastal Sixth Man Debate

New, comments

Today, Michael Pina of Shaky Ankles posted an article detailing race of Lamar Odom and Glen Davis for the 6th Man of the Year Award.

 "During last year's NBA Finals several match-ups were heavily anticipated, but a hushed clash between Boston's Glen Davis and Los Angeles' Lamar Odom remains the most peculiar. Fast forward eight months and the two are leading candidates for, what some believe to be, the greatest backhanded compliment in professional sports: Sixth Man of the Year.

... Odom plays five more minutes per game than Andrew Bynum, the player who's various ailments forced Odom into the starting lineup throughout the season. (Glen Davis plays two minutes less than Kevin Garnett, the player who starts above him.) It's the main reason why Odom's name hasn't been mentioned as a serious Sixth Man of the Year candidate until the past month or so: He's too good."

Damn straight he's good.  Even better he's been good consistently.  I don't think I need to tell you who better win this year.  In fact, I'll even go so far as to say that Lamar just may be my Lakers Player of the Year.  He's been that good.  I wonder if these Kardashians have any cousins in the Northeast?   Click the link to read the rest.
