As many expected, the 6th Man of the Year award came down to a two-man race, with Jamal Crawford of the Los Angeles Clippers topping Taj Gibson of the Chicago Bulls to take home the title. Crawford received 57 first-place votes, while Gibson picked up 49 first-place votes from the media.
Interestingly, Andray Blatche, also known as "Young Seymour," picked up one third-place vote for his efforts off the bench. Blatched averaged 11.2 points and 5.3 rebounds in 22.2 minutes per game for the Nets, and was, in fact, impactful coming off the bench.
For those wondering, Dwaine Price of the Ft. Worth Star Telegram gave Blatche his lone third-place vote. Former Nets wing Vince Carter received one first, one second and four third-place votes.
