Default 2016-17 All NBA Teams Announced

LeBron James of Cleveland Cavaliers is All-NBA for record-tying 11th time

Quote:
NEW YORK -- Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James has been named to the All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, and Houston's James Harden is the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season.

James matches the mark set by Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.

Joining Harden and James on the first team were Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and New Orleans' Anthony Davis. James and Westbrook each got 99 of a possible 100 first-team votes.

Harden made the first team for the third time. Westbrook, Leonard and Davis are now two-time first-teamers.

Leonard was a first-teamer on 96 ballots, second-team on three and third-team on one.

Golden State's Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant were second-team choices, joined by Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo, Utah's Rudy Gobert and Boston's Isaiah Thomas.

The third All-NBA team includes Chicago's Jimmy Butler, Golden State's Draymond Green, Toronto's DeMar DeRozan, Washington's John Wall and the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan.

All three teams have two guards, two forwards and one center.

Harden and Westbrook were runaway choices at guard, James and Leonard were easy picks at forward. Davis barely held off Gobert for the first-team center spot, finishing with 343 points to Gobert's 339.

Davis appeared on 95 of the 100 ballots; Gobert appeared on 91.
