James Harden to be named 6th man of the year

After a pretty good season and suffering a vicious blow to the head courtesy of World Peace, James Harden will get the due that so many people feel he deserves.

Best guy off the bench!

James Harden is expected to be formally introduced today as the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year, according to The Oklahoman. The team has scheduled a press conference for this afternoon in which they are expected to make the announcement.

Harden played a major role off the bench this season for the Thunder. The 22-year-old has averaged 16.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 31.4 minutes per game. Out of the Thunder’s 62 games this season, he started just two.

Last year, Harden averaged 12.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game for Oklahoma City.

Harden also received votes for the NBA’s Most Improved Player award.
