Starting is still an honor for NBA players, but a reserve role doesn't carry the same stigma it used to.

Closing a contest is more important than opening it, and the league's 15 best Sixth Man of the Year candidates will have no shortage of save opportunities.

Some of them are seasoned subs, players who bring consistent energy off the pine on a nightly basis. Others are new to the role, forced to adjust thanks to offseason movement or lingering question marks.

With the regular-season opener moving closer by the second, it's never too early to start looking ahead at potential award winners for the 2013-14 season. And few awards will have as many deserving candidates as this one.
