Stephen Curry, LeBron James Unanimous Decision on All-NBA First Team


Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry and Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James headline the All-NBA First Team as the only unanimous decisions. James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans and Marc Gasol of the Memphis Grizzlies were the other members of the first team. Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder and LaMarcus Aldridge headline the Second Team. Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, Pau Gasol of the Chicago Bulls and DeMarcus Cousins of the Sacramento Kings were the other members of the second team. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan of the Clippers headline the Third Team.

Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs, Warriors Klay Thompson and Cavs Kyrie Irving were the other members of the third team. James has been selected to eight straight first team and ninth selection overall. Harden has been selected to back to back first teams and this was Davis first selection. Duncan has been selected to 15th All-NBA teams, tying Kobe Bryant and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for most all time.


The Warriors, Cavs and Clippers were the only teams with multiple players on the three teams announced. Harden, Curry and James are three players currently playing in the Conference Finals now and Curry or Harden will be playing in the NBA Finals. The Atlanta Hawks are facing the Cavs in the Eastern Conference Finals and the Hawks finished with the best record in the East, but failed to have a player selected on the All-NBA teams. Paul Millsap received more votes than any player on the Hawks. Some people feel Defensive Player of the Year Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs was snubbed and should have been selected.
