Antetokounmpo earns All-NBA second team honors

NEW YORK (AP) - Cleveland's 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.

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.

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 Los Angeles Clippers' DeAndre Jordan.

 

Antetokounmpo averaged career highs in nearly all statistical categories including points (22.9), rebounds (8.8), assists (5.4), blocks (1.9) and steals (1.6) per game. Antetokounmpo made history by becoming the first player in the NBA to finish a season in the top-20 for total points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals, and became just the fifth player all-time to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks and steals per game over the course of a season.
