For a third straight year, Kevin Durant has been named to the NBA’s first team All-NBA squad.
He’s joined by LeBron James, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant.
Durant, who has been named to three straight All-Star teams and won three straight scoring titles, finished as runner-up to LeBron James for the MVP.
Russell Westbrook was named to the second team with Tony Parker, Blake Griffin, Kevin Love and Andrew Bynum. Westbrook received five first team votes.
The third team is Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki.
Westbrook, who could’ve now been eligible for the Rose Rule extension bump had he not waived it, has a strong case to be on the first team. He had probably his best season, finished fifth in scoring, and grew into one of the best three or four scorers in the game. Hard to remove CP3 or Kobe to insert Russ, but he certainly has a case.
