Bucks star Giannis named to All-NBA second team
Giannis Antetokounmpo earned no first-team votes, joining Rudy Gobert (Utah), Steph Curry (Golden State), Kevin Durant (Golden State) and Isaiah Thomas (Boston) on the All-NBA second team.
The fourth-year scorer emerged as an NBA star in his fourth season, and was named an all-star while averaging 22.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.9 blocks per game.
The 10th player in franchise history to be named to an All-NBA team Antetokounmpo is the first Bucks player to be named to the second team since Sidney Moncrief in 1986.
Cleveland’s LeBron James was named to the first team for a record-tying 11th time, and Houston’s James Harden was the lone player to be a unanimous first-team selection this season.
Joining Harden and James on the first team were Oklahoma City’s Russell Westbrook, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and New Orleans’ Anthony Davis. James and Westbrook each got 99 of a possible 100 first-team votes.
Harden made the first team for the third time. Westbrook, Leonard and Davis are now two-time first-teamers.
The third All-NBA team includes Jimmy Butler (Chicago), Draymond Green (Golden State), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto), John Wall (Washington) and the DeAndre Jordan (L.A. Clippers).
