It's awards season in the NBA

And while we know winners of this season's individual awards, like MVP and Rookie of the Year, the team honors are just beginning to roll in. Those include All-Rookie, All-Defensive and the prestigious All-NBA teams. 

Follow along with all the honorees below.



Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, G, Oklahoma City Thunder

The man they call SGA had the best season of his career, averaging 31.4 points per game (fourth-best in the league), and notching the first All-Star appearance of his tenure as well. And though he was a high-volume scorer, he did it at an efficient rate, shooting 51% from the floor, 34.5% from beyond the arc and 90% from the charity stripe. 

Luka Dončić, G, Dallas Mavericks

Dončić was a stat-sheet stuffer supreme for the Mavs, putting up 32.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and eight assists a night for the squad. 

Jayson Tatum, F, Boston Celtics

Tatum is an All-NBA First Team recipient for the second year in a row after guiding the C's to the Eastern Conference's second-best record. Tatum was sixth in the Association in scoring (30.1 PPG) and added 8.8 rebounds in 74 starts.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, F, Milwaukee Bucks 

Despite the Bucks' disappointing first-round exit, "The Greek Freak" was again among the league's best players. His individual brilliance was undeniable, as he put up a career-high 31.1 points per game alongside 11.8 boards. He also tied for the league lead in 50-plus point games, with Dončić.

Joel Embiid, C, Philadelphia 76ers

It's no surprise to see "MVBiid's" name at the center spot of the All-NBA First Team. The Sixers' behemoth was a man amongst boys all season, leading the league in scoring with 33.1 points per game on 54.8% from the floor, while hauling in 10.2 rebounds.


Stephen Curry, G, Golden State Warriors 

Per usual, Curry was a shooting machine for the Dubs, posting 49/42/91 shooting splits on a 29.4 points per game average, good for the third-best mark in his career.

Donovan Mitchell, G, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mitchell made an immediate impact with Cleveland in his first year there, posting 28.3 points per game on 48.4% from the floor, not to mention tying the highest points output of the season with a 71-point explosion against Chicago

Jaylen Brown, G, Boston Celtics

Brown is an All-Star for the second time in his career. He had the best offensive season of his career with 26.6 PPG, while converting 49% of his field goals and grabbing 6.9 boards.

Jimmy Butler, F, Miami Heat

Jimmy Butler has made tremendous noise during the postseason, but he's been excelling on both ends of the court all season, notching 22.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 5.3 assists per game. 

Nikola Jokić, C, Denver Nuggets

"The Joker" was stellar in all phases of the game, nearly averaging a triple-double with 24.5 PPG, 11.8 RPG and 9.8 APG.


Damian Lillard, G, Portland Trail Blazers

Lillard had games of 71, 60 and 50 this season, and averaged 32.2 PPG alongside 7.3 assists. He had an effective field-goal percentage of 56.4.

De'Aaron Fox, G, Sacramento Kings 

The Jerry West Clutch Player of the Year led the NBA in clutch points (194) and clutch points per game (5.0). He was also a first-time All-Star, with averages of 25 points a night, with 6.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.1 steals.

LeBron James, F, Los Angeles Lakers

James bested the 25 points per game mark for the 19th straight season, totaling 28.9 to complement 8.3 boards and 6.8 assists.

Julius Randle, F, New York Knicks

Randle put up a double-double with 25.1 points and 10 rebounds a night. He made the second All-Star team of his career with the Knicks.

Domantas Sabonis, C, Sacramento Kings

Sabonis was an undeniable cog in Sactown's spirited season, putting up 19.1 points, 12.3 rebounds and 7.3 assists to guide them to their best record (48-34) in 18 years.


Bennedict Mathurin, G, Indiana Pacers

Mathurin was a key igniter of Indiana's offense this season, starring alongside Tyrese Haliburton in the squad's backcourt and averaging 16.7 points per game on 43.4% shooting. 

Keegan Murray, F, Sacramento Kings

No rookie in NBA history made more 3-pointers than Keegan Murray. His 206 made 3s shattered Donovan Mitchell's previous record of 187, and his efficient stroke (41.1%) from deep helped the Kings clinch their first playoff berth since 2006.

Jalen Williams, F, Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder drafted a pair of rooks with the same first name (different spelling) in 2022, but it was Jalen with an "e" who etched his name on the All-Rookie squad. The Santa Clara product posted 14.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.4 steals per game on 52.1% shooting. 

Paolo Banchero, F, Orlando Magic

It's no surprise that the Rookie of the Year made All-Rookie First Team. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound forward fit right into the NBA's style of play for Orlando, complementing 20 points per game with 6.9 rebounds. He was also the only unanimous selection.

Walker Kessler, C, Utah Jazz

Kessler was a defensive juggernaut for the Jazz all season, holding down the paint with 2.3 blocks per game. He was dependable on the offensive end as well, putting up 9.2 points per game on 72% shooting from the floor, alongside 8.4 boards.


Jaden Ivey, PG, Detroit Pistons

The high-flying guard was commendable in place of an injured Cade Cunningham, tallying 16.3 points and 5.2 assists per game in his starting role.

Tari Eason, F, Houston Rockets

The Rockets had a slew of impressive young players break out onto the scene this season, and Eason's showing was perhaps the most unexpected. He was stable on offense, posting 9.3 points and six boards per game, while earning his coach's trust with some solid defense.

Jabari Smith Jr., F, Houston Rockets

The No. 3 pick in last year's draft averaged 12.8 points and 7.2 assists per game in 79 starts.

Jeremy Sochan, F, San Antonio Spurs

Sochan's play was just as colorful as his hair, as he rode a barrage of poster dunks to 11 points and 5.3 rebounds per contest.

Jalen Duren, C, Detroit Pistons

Born on November 18, 2003, the 19-year-old Duren was the youngest player to appear in an NBA contest this season. His play was far from inexperienced though, as he averaged 9.1 points and 8.9 rebounds a night. He shot 64.8% from the floor.


Jrue Holiday, G, Milwaukee Bucks

Holiday helped the Bucks attain the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference this season in part due to his defensive craft. The guard averaged 1.2 steals and 5.1 rebounds per game.

Alex Caruso, G, Chicago Bulls

Caruso's identity as a defensive disruptor remained as such this season, averaging 1.5 steals per game while bouncing in and out of Chicago's starting lineup.

Jaren Jackson Jr., C, Memphis Grizzlies

Jackson has grown into one of the better front-court players in the NBA, headlined by his elite knack for denying shots. The big man averaged an NBA-best three blocks per game in capturing the league's Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Evan Mobley, C, Cleveland Cavaliers

Mobley started 79 games for Cleveland, helping the team finish first in points surrendered (106.9 points per game) while denying 1.5 shots per game.

Brook Lopez, C, Milwaukee Bucks

Lopez defended the paint at a high level for the top-seeded Bucks, blocking 2.5 shots per game.


Derrick White, G, Boston Celtics

White was a swarming defender and primary starter on a Boston defense that finished top-five in the NBA in opponent points (111.4), field goal percentage (46.3%) and 3-point shooting percentage (34.5%) per game.

Dillon Brooks, G, Memphis Grizzlies

Brooks made a name for himself on the defensive end, and he maintained that reputation en route to helping Memphis claim the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference.

OG Anunoby, F, Toronto Raptors

Anunoby got in Toronto's starting five as a rookie primarily due to his defense, and he continues to be such a player on that end of the floor. The Raptors forward averaged an NBA-best 1.9 steals per game.

Draymond Green, F, Golden State Warriors

Green has always done a little bit of everything, which he continued to do this season on both ends. He averaged one steal, nearly one block and 7.2 rebounds per game.

Bam Adebayo, C, Miami Heat

The versatile Adebayo was a defensive linchpin for the Heat this season, forcing turnovers and defending the paint. He averaged 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks per game
