Kevin Durant has been named to his fourth consecutive first-team All-NBA squad, joining LeBron James, Chris Paul, Tim Duncan and Kobe Bryant.
Russell Westbrook was selected to his third straight second-team, joining Tony Parker, Marc Gasol, Carmelo Anthony and Blake Griffin.
Third team: James Harden, Dwyane Wade, Paul George, Dwight Howard and David Lee.
Durant received 102 out of 119 possible first-team votes for a total of 555 points, second only to LeBron (119 out of 119, 595 points). Westbrook received just 20 first-place votes out of 119. Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul got 91 and 97, respectively.
Serge Ibaka received a couple votes, totaling four points.
I don’t know that you can really make a great case for Westbrook being first-team over Kobe or CP3, but I think the gap should’ve been far closer at least. Westbrook had an incredible season, his best yet.
Oh, and again, 17 stupid people left Durant off their first-team. Who are these people?
