He Is Better Than Every Other Candidate

Here is a short list of who might be contending for the NBA’s Sixth Man Of The Year:

Jamal Crawford – STATS: 16.4 points, 2.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds

Andre Iguodala – STATS: 8.1 points, 3 assists, 3.4 rebounds

Lou Williams – STATS: 16 points, 2.0 assists, 1.9 rebounds

I think the best shot out of those three would be Iguodala, because of his willingness to come off the bench and how effective he runs the offense in Golden State.  But, there is no way that Iggy is the main cause for the success for GSW.  Isaiah Thomas on the other hand, has been the spark to an incredible second half to the Celtics.

He has been our leader both on and off the court.  And I expect him to step up these next four games of the regular season, and be even better when it is playoff time! Let’s go Celtics!
