James received 99 first-team votes and one second-team vote, matching the 498 points Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook tallied. If you claim that Westbrook, beyond just the eye-catching, but in the end arbitrary, triple-double averages, topped the National Basketball Association in Player Efficiency Rating, you'd have to then agree that James finished sixth in the category - behind Leonard and Kevin Durant among forwards. Davis was named to the All-NBA First Team for the second time in his career (2015) and Wall was tabbed to the All-NBA Third Team for the first time.
The NBA also announced finalists for Rookie of the Year, Sixth Man of the Year, Coach of the Year, Most Improved Player of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year and other awards.
All those awards will be announced in NY on June 26, and complete voting results will be released at that time.
James was named first-team All-NBA for the 11th time, including each of the past 10 seasons. It would be the third straight sweep this post-season for the defending champions, who also won the last three games of last year's final.
The Cavaliers destroyed the Boston Celtics 117-104 in Game 1 on their home floor Wednesday night to kick off the series, a game in which LeBron James looked unstoppable. Game 3 goes Sunday night.
Defensive Player of the Year finalists are Warriors forward Draymond Green, Gobert, the NBA's blocks leader and Leonard, who has won the award in each of the past two years. Westbrook will likely sign an extension with the team this summer and should be your number one pick in re-draft leagues next season.
Here's the full list of All-NBA Teams. He wasn't supposed to play in back-to-back games until January but sped up the process when the Wizards began 2-8 and were in danger of falling off the cliff.
And LeBron James says the Cleveland Cavaliers can still do better. According to NBA.com player tracking data, Green limited opponents to 44 percent shooting at the rim, behind only Rudy Gobert and San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge.
A European player will win this award. Antetokounmpo was voted to start the All-Star Game at midseason and the Greek Freak could add another honor after it. Jokic was a creative playmaking center for a Denver team that ranked behind just Golden State and Houston in scoring.
