NBA Awards: 6th Man

Manu Ginobili was very effective coming off the bench for the Spurs this year, but this award has been Leandro Barbosa's for months. The Brazillian Blur is going for 18 a night while shooting almost 48% (including 43% from three), with 4 assists, and under 2 turnovers a game. Almost everything he does for Phoenix is positive. Plus, I once boasted of Barbosa's future in the NBA to a couple of buddies who then watched him stink during a game in his rookie year and constantly berated me about it. This will provide yet another link for me to send their way as payback.
