6th Man of the Year
Norris Cole, Miami Heat
Statistics: 11.7 PPG 1.7 RPG 3.2 APG
The rookie made his presence felt by dropping 14 fourth quarter points vs. the Celtics during the second game of the season. Folks were confused as to why the Miami Heat used their first-round pick on a point guard from Cleveland St. Now we know. He's averaging 11 points and three dimes while stealing minutes from Mario Chalmers and has shown a confidence not normal for a first year player. Especially, playing alongside the Big Three. We think they found their Ringo.
