All-NBA Teams Announced

Updated: Feb 29




The 1st, 2nd and 3rd All-NBA teams were announced today. Possibly the most notable piece of news stemming from this announcement is that Los Angeles Lakers Forward LeBron James' streak of 11 consecutive 1st Team selections was snapped. Perhaps even more surprising is that he fell all the way to the 3rd team All-NBA. This was due in part largely to his inability to win the game on 1on1 with father time this year missing a career high 27 regular season games. I have a hard time seeing anything wrong with this list, other than thinking that Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard being on the 2nd team. The only reason I do not highlight this grave injustice to both- there is not one person on either the 1st or 2nd team that I would replace them with. The league is strong. See the list below and tweet me your list or @theoutlethoops who you would place elsewhere or any notable omissions.
