Although he started 35 games, Lakers forward Lamar Odom has won the Sixth Man of the Year Award. The only requirement to win the award is for a player to come in as a reserve more games than he starts. From the LA Times: “Lakers forward Lamar Odom has won the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year Award, according to multiple league officials. Odom will receive the award later today at a hotel near LAX. Kobe Bryant had a similar award ceremony near LAX when he won the MVP award in 2008. Odom, 31, averaged 14.4 points and 8.7 rebounds while playing all 82 regular-season games. He shot a career-best 53%, started 35 games and helped the Lakers weather the in-and-out tendencies of Andrew Bynum. Dallas guard Jason Terry was considered Odom’s main competition for the award.”
