NBA Sixth Man Of The Year Award 2012: Al Harrington Finishes 4th In Voting

As expected, third year Oklahoma City Thunder guard James Harden was named the NBA's 2012 Sixth Man of the Year on Thursday afternoon. Harden was the obvious choice for months. The Arizona State product averaged 16.8 points per game for the Thunder this season and posted an impressive PER of 21.13.

Denver Nuggets forward Al Harrington finished fourth in the voting.

Harrington finished the 2011-2012 season with averages of 14.2 points per game and 6.1 rebounds per game. Harrington ended the regular season with a 15.39 PER. The Nuggets' bench was a big reason why George Karl's team made the postseason in the always treacherous Western Conference, and Harrington was certainly a vital component.
