LeBron, Harden, and Westbrook headline All-NBA Selections

The NBA announced their 2016-2017 All-NBA teams Thursday afternoon.

Cavaliers forward LeBron James made his 11th consecutive All-NBA first team, which ties him with Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant for the most all time. James averaged 26.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 8.6 assists this season.

Joining James on the first team was Oklahoma City Thunder Point Guard Russell Westbrook and Houston Rockets shooting guard James Harden.

Westbrook became the first player since Oscar Robertson to average a triple-double for an entire season, led the NBA in scoring (31.6 points per game), and guided the Thunder to the sixth best record in the Western Conference this season.

Harden was the only player on the first team who received 100% of the votes. He led the league in assists and guided the Rockets to 55 wins during the regular season.

Finishing out the first team selections were San Antonio Spurs Forward Kawhi Leonard and New Orleans Pelicans center Anthony Davis.

Notable 2nd team selections included 2-time league MVP Stephen Curry, 2014 league MVP Kevin Durant, and Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas.

The third team selections were John Wall, Demar DeRozan, Jimmy Butler, Draymond Green, and DeAndre Jordan.

Absent from the teams were Paul George and Gordan Heyward. This means that the two of them will not be eligible for super max contracts of $210 million this summer.

The full list of the teams along with the voting is listed below:
