The NBA's Sixth Man of the Year award has heavily favored offensive production coming off the bench since its inception in 1982-83, with every winner from the past 15 seasons ranking in the top three in eligible points per game for second-unit scorers.

It's easy to simply give the honor to the man who scores the most points in that role, as it's fairly standard criteria to help determine who made the biggest impact for their respective squad outside of the starting lineup. That only applies to playoff teams, though, as it's difficult to justify rewarding a player for numbers that don't produce victories.

Andre Iguodala of the Golden State Warriors, the reigning 2015 NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, doesn't possess the ability to take over on offense like Jamal Crawford, nor can he crash the glass as effectively as Enes Kanter. Instead, he's a prime example of why it's important to dig deeper than the box score to evaluate a player's contributions.
