I want to hear from you all on who on this list is worthy and who you think may not be worthy.

He's also continued to improve his jumper, knocking down 85 3-pointers. Last season he averaged 12.7 ppg, 4.1 rpg, 45.2 FG%, 27.9 mpg,this upcoming season should be more of the same.

He's hit 20 points on 17 occasions and 30 on three, including a season-high of 40 in 35 minutes against Washington.The long-range bomber connected on 166 3-pointerslast season,the team record for 3-pointers is 168. Smith ranks fourth in the league in scoring for those with fewer than 20 starts.Last season he averaged 14.9 ppg, 44.5 FG%, 39.2 3P%, 27.8 mpg.This season should be more of the same.
Barbosa is know as the brazilian blur for his quickness,with the run and gun style of the Suns he has shined in his sixth man role.He has a quick first step,can finish around the basket,and can shot the three by hitting 90 of them last season on 38% shooting.Last season he averaged 14.2 ppg,2.3 apg,1.2 spg, 24.4 mpg,this season should be more of the same.
Ginobili, the best NBA 6th Man in 2008, is the epitome of selflessness,who spices up the scoring of the second unit of the Spurs for the last handful of seasons and has been ah main clog in help winning 3 NBA titles.He would be 1st on this list but with his last couple of injury plauged seasons had to drop him one spot.Last season he averaged 16 ppg,5 rpg,4 apg, 26.8 mpg,this season should be more of the same.
Terry,the reigning sixth man of the year and high-spirited 10-year vet averaged more points last season than each of the last 18 Sixth Man winners.
