All-NBA team selections


Of course the league MVP would be selected!  Miami Heat forward Lebron James was an unanimous pick receiving all 119 votes from a host of reporters and broadcasters in the U.S. and Canada. He was the only player to get that many votes. This has been an outstanding year for Lebron James and winning the NBA Finals would just add icing on the cake. Kobe Bryant was also selected which allowed him to earn his 11th record-tying first team selection!

Kobe is now tied with Hall-of-Famer Karl Malone. Bryant was previously tied for 10 with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor, Bob Cousy, Michael Jordan, Bob Pettit and Jerry West.  Along with James and Bryant are Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, San Antonio center Tim Duncan, and Los Angeles Clipper’s point guard Chris Paul.
