Mason, Jackson among favorites
Bobby Jackson has been destroying second string point guards for three years now.
Troy Hudson (point guard): 14.2 points per game last year, 14.9 points per game in the playoffs (career)
Penny Hardaway (shooting guard): Four-time all star and three-time All NBAer with 60 playoff appearances.
Antawn Jamison (small forward): Has averaged 21.8 points per game over the last four years.
Robert Horry (power forward): Key component of five NBA Title teams.
Alonzo Mourning (center): All NBA credentials and two-time Defensive Player of the Year
But the truly amazing thing is that I didn't even need to place any of them on the list below of early candidates for Sixthman of the Year in no particular order.
