One of the most misunderstood players on an NBA roster is that of a Sixth Man. This is the player that will step in and alter the pace and momentum of a game with their contributions, even as naive fans label them "not good enough to start."
Fortunately, the evaluative mind understands their value. So who must we now honor in the race for the 2013 Sixth Man of the Year award?
For some, there will be stars that have recently transitioned to the role of a reserve. For others, it will be the usual suspects as past winners and previous contenders make an appearance on this list.
Regardless of who you see, all are deserving contenders. The question is, who is the mid-season Sixth Man of the Year?
