Lamar Odom Wins NBA’s 6th Man of the Year Award

 

The Los Angeles Lakers’ Lamar Odom is the winner of the 2010-11 KIA NBA Sixth Man Award as the league’s best player in a reserve role, the NBA announced today. Odom, the first Lakers player to win the award, came off the bench in 47 contests and appeared in all 82 contests.

Odom received 513 of a possible 585 points, including 96 of a possible 117 first-place votes, from a panel of 117 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. For the second consecutive season, Jason Terry of the Dallas Mavericks finished second with 244 points. Thaddeus Young of the Philadelphia 76ers finished third with 76 points.

In order to be eligible for this award, players had to have come off the bench in more games than they started. Players were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.

As a reserve, Odom averaged 13.0 points and 7.5 rebounds in 28.4 minutes; he recorded 12 double-doubles as a sub. Overall, Odom averaged 14.4 points on .530 shooting, 8.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 32.2 minutes. He recorded 28 double-doubles on the season, scored in double digits 63 times, and netted at least 20 points 14 times.

This would mark Lamar Odom’s very first NBA award in his 12 year career, and the first Laker to win the award in team history. In arguably his most productive season as a player.

    Well, richly deserved, I think. He’s been knocking on the door all these years. For anyone interested in some thoughts about the end game and the aging of the league, click the link. It’s not all bad news though, we still have the switch – only have to throw it about 16 more times.
