SAN ANTONIO -- San Antonio Spurs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/clubhouse?team=sas) guard Manu Ginobili (http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?statsId=3380) -- good enough to be a starter on about any team -- won the NBA's sixth man award given to the league's best reserve on Monday.

Ginobili led the Spurs in scoring, averaging a career-high 19.5 points to go with 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists. Ginobili came off the bench in 51 of the 74 games he played this season.

"I really don't care about coming from the bench if that helps the team to win a championship," Ginobili said.

Congrats to Ginobili. He deserved it. Spurs fans... Why isn't this guy in the starting lineup on a regular basis?!

Next year, I would like to see J.R. Smith win the 6th man award.

When Duncan and Parker site down at the end of the 1st and early 2nd, he's able to run the team and to take over as the primary scorer. Pop knows how to rotate his players to keep them fresh.
