According to NBA players, Andre Iguodala is not the best sixth man in the league.
On Friday morning, Lou Williams was recognized as the "Best off the Bench" player.
At the inaugural NBA Awards Show in late June, Iguodala finished runner-up in the Sixth Man of the Year race to Rockets guard Eric Gordon.
Iguodala received 43 first-place votes, 34 second-place votes and nine third-place votes.
Gordon registered 46 first-place votes, 40 second-place votes and eight third-place votes.
Williams was a very distant third with five third-place votes, 10 second-place votes and 15 third-place votes.
He averaged 18.6 points and 3.2 assists over 58 games with the Lakers last season, while shooting 44.4 percent from the field and 38.5 percent from deep.
In 23 regular season games with the Rockets, Williams averaged 14.9 points and 2.4 assists on 38.6 percent shooting overall and just below 32 percent from 3-point territory.
Against the Spurs in the Western Conference Semifinals, Williams struggled to the tune of 7.3 points per game. He shot 35 percent from the floor and below 18 percent from distance.
Iguodala played arguably his best game of the season in Game 5 of the NBA Finals -- 20 points (9 for 14 FG), four rebounds and three assists.
For the series, his +60 mark led the Warriors by a comfortable margin (Draymond Green +30, Kevin Durant +33, Steph Curry +30, Klay Thompson +22).
Iguodala was rewarded with a 3-year, $48 million contract this summer.
I doubt he cares whatsoever about falling short for this award...
