I was reading an article from the news back home. It is in spanish, that is why I dind't post it. It says that the Argentina people are offended with the Sixth man of the Year Award. Please let your opinions be known. Meanwhile I am going to try and find the aticle in english

A little bizarre. I wonder why they object?

I wonder if they would have been offended if it was the MVP award.

I also can do it. Basically what they are sying is that he is a better player than being a sixth man and thta he is the 6th man as part of a strategy of their coach. They also say that it is a disgraced to have that award.

Here is the link, just in case. It is in spanish.

He's the sixth man because he's great at it. And they win championships, so they know what they're doing. I'm surprised at this.

Ginobili is a very unselfish player and its disappointing to see his home country is offended by an award! Talk about selfish.

Yeah, you don't think the Puerto Ricans would be so offended if Carlos Arroyo won the award.
