why? Andres has put up almost identicaly #'s while less minutes and much much better defense
Unfortunately for Andres, the game's not all about stats.

Miller's the team's second leading scorer off the bench, the team's second leading rebounder off the bench, gets more assists, has the league-most points off the bench, a 41-point game off the bench and a triple-double off the bench (which hasn't been accomplished in 10 years).

Not only does he have the raw numbers over Nocioni, but he also plays a more vital role on his team. He just has more of an effect on Memphis games than Nocioni does on Bulls games. And has achieved some rare feats, which Nocioni - I have not checked, but I can take a guess - has not.

...and then you go to list stats like assist numbers. Not following.

Although Miller would be my choice.

Not all about stats, but stats are part of it...obviously. Were you under the impression that I would completely ignore all the stats Miller leads in?

Miller has better stats than practically all of these guys. However, his impact, along with the stats will be the key, and it's why he's dominating this poll right now.

You saying that stats weren't all the game, and then reciting stat-based arguments like points, rebounds, and assists was confusing, yes.

well it works doesnt it, thats how half the 6th men come about....but in the reports and espn, they just cover it by sayin "ohh Coach such and feels he can bring a SPARK off the bench"

not enough, like full coverage of each round of playoffs last season but probably only 2 games this year.

but u cant say that dampier isn't severely underperforming after his 12-12 contract season by the bay
