NBA Sixth Man of the Year Award

The National Basketball Association's Sixth Man of the Year Award is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) award given since the 1982-83 NBA season to the league's best performing player for his team coming off the bench as a substitute (or sixth man). A panel of sportswriters and broadcasters from throughout the United States and Canada votes on the recipient.

Each judge casts a vote for first, second and third place selections. Each first-place vote is worth five points; each second-place vote is worth three points; and each third-place vote is worth one point. The player with the highest point total, regardless of the number of first-place votes, wins the award. To be eligible for the award, a player must come off the bench in more games than he starts.[1]

Since its inception, the award has been given to 30 different players. The most recent recipient is Eric Gordon. Jamal Crawford is the only three time winner of the award. Kevin McHale, Ricky Pierce and Detlef Schrempf have each won the award two times. Bobby Jones was the inaugural winner of the award for the 1982-83 NBA season. McHale and Bill Walton are the only Hall of Famers who have won the award; Walton is also the only award winner to have earned NBA MVP honors in their career.[2]

Manu Ginóbili, Detlef Schrempf, Leandro Barbosa, Toni Kuko? and Ben Gordon are the only award winners not born in the United States. Gordon was the first player to win the award as a rookie.[3] Of the five foreign-born winners, three were trained completely outside the U.S., namely Ginóbili, Barbosa and Kuko?. Schrempf played two years of high school basketball in Centralia, Washington before playing college basketball at Washington, and Gordon was raised in Mount Vernon, New York and went on to play in college at Connecticut.
