The one-and-done Michigan star and current Los Angeles Clippers guard claimed the 2016 NBA Sixth Man of the Year on Tuesday, becoming the award's first three-time winner. Crawford also earned the honor in 2010, as a member of the Atlanta Hawks, and in 2014, also with the Clippers.

Something else cool: At 36, Crawford is the oldest player to win the award, which was created before the 1982-83 season.

Crawford averaged 14.2 points, scoring a team-high 341 fourth-quarter points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists; he also shot 90.4 percent from the free-throw line, good enough for second in the NBA.
