More tweets from John Schuhmann:Portland Trail Blazers reserve forward Luke Babbitt received a third-place vote for 2013 NBA Sixth Man of the Year.
Babbitt, 23, averaged 3.9 points and 2.2 rebounds in 11.8 minutes in 62 appearances this season. Babbitt played the tenth most minutes on the Blazers this season and the team did not pick up the option for the fourth year of his rookie contract, making him an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Amir Johnson didn't get a single Sixth Man vote. But somebody had the audacity to vote for Luke Babbitt? Seriously?— John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann) April 22, 2013
304 players (more than 10 per team) played more minutes than Luke Babbitt. And someone said he was the 3rd best bench player in the league.— John Schuhmann (@johnschuhmann) April 22, 2013
I have no idea as to what to say about this.This is beyond ridiculous. I don't know if this is just an outlier (some idiot voted), or if this is just another example of the Raps being under-appreciated. Maybe I'm overthinking though.
