    Not really surprised with any of this. Bogut caught my eye a bit.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    DWill back where he belongs.

  • Kevin S

    Bosh NOT make ANY of the All-NBA teams is ridiculous!

  • jdote

    no celtics?! manu might’ve been the best player on the spurs during the most crucial stretch of the season but timmy got on…thats kind of a pik em tho..idk about b roy makin it when he missed 17 games…love how young and just reaching their prime all the first team members r besides kobe.. real good for the league

  • http://thekobebeef.wordpress.com LDR4

    Snubbed: Al Horford, Zach Randolph, Josh Smith, Derrick Rose, Rajon Rondo. Oh well, better luck next year. It’s odd that the 1st and 3rd teams don’t have a real point guard on them.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    Really? I’d put Z-Bo on the Third Team before Bosh this season.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    What are the odds that the First Team is all plays for the USA in the ’12 Olympics?

  • $tev3

    Bosh over Pau or Duncan
    and next year David Lee will be on this list

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    David Lee? Nah…

  • $tev3

    and DWill not so much

  • I’m Not Famous

    Am I wrong for thinking the third team beats the second team pretty handily?

  • $tev3

    Ryne if he lands on a good/decent team yes

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Michael Scorn

    CP3, back where he belongs.

  • jumpman3224

    1. Congrats to first timers Durant and Bogut!
    2. Four of the Five first teamers combined for one year of college ball and that was Durant and that was ’cause he had to.
    3. KB24 has been named All-NBA every year that he has been a starter and now has more All-NBA (12 total: 8 1st, 2 2nd and 2 3rd) and All-NBA Defense (10 total: 8 1st and 2 2nd) selections than MJ (11 and 9). Not saying at this point in his career KB is better or great, just sayin’.

  • jumpman3224


  • http://www.slamonline.com wayno

    No complaints about the 1st team. That’s solid right there.

  • Zarfan

    @jumpman3224, Dwyane Wade played two years at Marquette. And what was the point with #3? It just seems like you want to start a debate.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    $tev3… you’re right in that every All-NBA player was a Playoff/winning team. But still, there’s too many great forwards. Lee’s not a top 6 F, and probably never will be. That’s not to say I think he’s underrated. Great player.

  • http://slamonline.com/ Ryne Nelson

    So, with 14 points, is it safe to say Chris Paul had the most disappointing season in the NBA this season? SLAMonline ranked him as the pre-season No. 4 player: http://www.slamonline.com/online/category/nba/slamonline-top-50/

  • jumpman3224

    @Zarfan: I know that Dwyane Wade played two years as at Marquette and was at the school for three years. I said that four of the five (Bryant, James, Howard and Durant) combined for one year. Kinda selective I know, but I think those type of things go under sold in the whole NBA age requirement issue. As to point three, I in fact don’t want to start a debate. Like I said, I’m not saying that he is better or greater or anything like that. Any debate to that effect will have to wait until KB24′s career is over. We just have so few older players who are still playing at that high of a level(only 4 players drafted pre-2001 made any of these teams and only one made the 1st team), I think it is nice to highlight their body of work. In the end selections to these teams go along way towards marking a player’s time in the L.

  • Aaron

    No Lee. No Bosh. No Clue.

  • Diesel

    Is anyone else suprised by Duncan making third team? I feel like a lot of big men had better seasons than him this year.

  • jumpman3224

    I really feel like Bosh should’ve been on there somewhere. I know his team didn’t make the playoffs, but that hasn’t kept people off before. Shaq in 2009, Kobe in 2005, etc.

  • Twinparadox

    I’m just wondering where Kobe’s other 3 1st team votes went…

  • http://dsfjklf.com Jukai

    I predicted it. Despite injuries and ‘taking half the season off,’ both Wade and Kobe made it on the team over the more deserving Williams and Nash. Terrible.

  • no id

    who is this!???

  • larrylegend

    where is the dirk bashing?…oh, well…

  • tomtom

    Jukai, i duno what league u have been watching but Dwade missed 4games and kobe was criticised to no end about NOT resting and missed 9 games. so infact wade played about 95% of games and kobe around about 89% of games played. So not even close to the 50% that you suggested and both were in the top 10 in minutes played. Furthermore deron williams played 1less game than Dwade. Very stange comment i think, lack of thought and reason. *Star hating is just so hot right now **stereotypical ‘the hills’ kind of voice**.*

  • playa

    so jukai, according to you kobe isn’t deserving to be among 5 best players in the league this year??(injuries or not)Now that’s funny.

  • http://Egotastic.com Michael

    I’m pretty sure Jukai was referring to D-wade half assing it for 2/3rds of the season and Kobe’s dissapointing second half due to injuries.

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Jukai Wade led Miami to the 5 SEED. They won like 65% of their last 35 games. He deserved 1st team easy. Kobe is debatable, Pau Gasol was their best player outside of the last minute of a game ALL SEASON. it isn’t debatable kobe lovers, don’t try

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    I’m surprised TD is third team. I thought he would be a key in for 2nd team for the rest of the way.

  • BostonBaller

    Before Rondo’s 2nd year started I said he’d make an all nba team within 2 or 3years and I was bashed beyond recognition here. He may be ahead of schedule. lol. I’m stating this now..Perk will be on an all nba team withing 2 more years. He is more than solid on D, his offense is getting better, he rebounds well and he is coachable. Let the bashing begin…

  • whooo!

    how the hell did Brook Lopez get ANY votes!? if your team is HISTORICALLY bad and barely wins over 10 games, how could you possibly even be considered for all-nba?

  • http://www.sovainmag.com Sovain

    I have no problem with the selections. Kind of surprised Bogut made it. He did have a good year, but surprised he was actually noticed–thats a good thing. Glad KD made 1st team, couldn’t see him not make it, with his 30point average.

  • whooo!

    i also agree other forwars could make it over Duncan, but considering Toronto’s lack of wins, i think taht’s why Bosh lost out to Gasol & Duncan. but as much as i could think he got a ‘lifetime’ vote for all-nba, he’ still putting up big numbers in the playoffs (29/10/3 last night). this is the 13th straight year (every year since his rookie season) he’s all-nba and all-defensive! is that a record or something?

  • ampd

    @whooo! i was wondering the same thing, i didn’t know it was possible to make all-nba if your team doesn’t even crack 20 games

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    No complaints about any of the teams. Think they got it pretty much right… maybe Rondo over Roy. Maybe. But thats it.

  • Garett

    Paul is not a huge disappointment because he was injured, and his team was garbage

  • onlyclipsfanonslam

    Nash is more deserving to be on the first team than Wade. Not saying he is better player overall, but everyone thought they would suck coming into the season, but they were good and he is putting up numbers from 4-5 years ago

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Michael Scorn

    Yeah, but The King’s team is garbage too. The only difference is that CP3 is human.

  • Holiday

    If anybody had a real claim to Wade’s spot it was DWill, but I’m not arguing the pick! As good as Nash’s offense is he quite simply cannot defend, and that is what really give’s wade and Williams the edge!

  • Holiday

    And one more thing, yeah Rondo is one of the better PG’s in the league but as far as the elite he’s in my opinion just on the outside! I mean just like with Kidd and the Mavs if you have that great of a team you better be able to play that well! Deron Williams, CP3, and Wade are all better! Westbrook, Ellis, Harris that’s more his group!

  • ripslam

    Rondo got shafted.

  • ripslam

    Michael Scorn: “Yeah, but The King’s team is garbage too. The only difference is that CP3 is human.” Number one: LeBron’s team is no longer trash. That argument could have been made in 2007 but not now, when he’s playing with Mo Williams, Shaq, Antawn Jamison, and one of the deepest benches in the league. Another classic LeBron fanboy. May I add that Chris Paul is the best point guard in the league.

  • Holiday

    How do you figure Chris Paul to be the best?

  • Atrain

    The only guy all you Rondo supporters have a chance of him getting ahead of is Roy. He’s not beating out any of those other guards

    Congrats Durant and Bogut 1st time, both deserved

  • Holiday

    Deron Williams has dominated the head to head match ups! Not just in wins but he shuts Paul down, he’s a much better defender and his skill set will last him long after Paul’s starts to fade!

  • Holiday

    Honestly if I were to replace anybody it would be Bosh for Bogut, or maybe Duncan more so this year! And Gerald Wallace over Johnson or Roy! With the right team Wallace could be up in the ranks, not as high as Kobe, James, or Wade but not far off!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Pretty good, but DERON WILLIAMS should have made first team!

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Also, Chris Bosh and David Lee >>> Andrew Bogut.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Stop bringing in team records to everything, oh my gosh. If we’re talking team success then Robert Horry should have been a perennial All-NBA selection. We’re talking PLAYERS here.

  • Jacob (from Australia)

    1st – Dwight, Durant, Bron, Kobe & Nash, 2nd – STAT, Dirk, Melo, Wade, D.Will, 3rd – Bogut, Gasol, Wallace, Johnson, Rondo. Might as well make a 4th coz we can :P – Lopez, Bosh, Randolph, Manu, Kidd.

  • http://www.stonesthrow.com Michael NZ

    Teddy, I’ll give you Bosh over Bogut, but Lee? Not so much. And I just don’t think Kobe or Wade can be taken off for Deron. 2nd squad is right for him.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Michael Scorn

    @ripslam- “he’s playing with Mo Williams, Shaq, Antawn Jamison, and one of the deepest benches in the league.” Yeah, but none of those guys are all-stars. thus, a suck squad.

  • http://thephotoriot.com davidR

    rondo definitely got snubbed. i don’t see how roy makes it over him, especially considering rondo’s career year, while roy was missed so many games and his number were down across the board

  • Spetsnaz

    When did Amare center this year?

  • http://www.alllooksame.com Tarzan Cooper

    they need to start doing this by position, theres no way deron shouldnt be on the first team. he is the best pg in the league.

  • Spetsnaz

    When did Amare PLAY center this year?

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    @ Michael NZ: It’s time for people to STOP underrating David Lee, and, I’m sorry to say it, STOP overrating Andrew Bogut.
    Bogut had a great year, and he’s improved his game a lot, this is true. He helped his team get to the playoffs, and his defense has been outstanding. This is also true. But let’s take his season for what it really was–a 16 and 10 season.
    I’d rather have David Lee’s 20.2 ppg, 11.7 rpg, and 3.6 apg any day of the week.
    You really can’t argue that Bogut is better than Lee… Lee averaged more points, rebounds, and assists, AND shot a better percentage from the field.
    The only thing Bogut had on him was blocked shots–and I’ll admit, he wipes the floor with Lee in that area and that area ONLY.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Lee is not that bad of a defender anymore, and, let’s face it, 3.6 assists per game is pretty damn impressive for any big man.
    I like Bogut and I hope to see him only get better (which it looks like he will), but Lee’s work over the course of this season needs to be commended in the basketball community.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    They should have taken Wade off of 1st Team and put Deron Williams there. But of course they wouldn’t do that… Wade, Kobe, and LeBron are the league’s poster children–that’s why Kobe and LeBron had to randomly appear on the All Defensive 1st Team without any business being there at all.

  • http://250aspirin.blogspot.com DJ Leon Smith

    I love the people who say David Lee is better than Bogut, shows the people who don’t watch games and just look at boxscores.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Wow, ‘Drew Bogut got recognition. FANTASTIC. I have no issues with this year’s selections. Great Job, Nba.

  • Roc

    Real first team:

    C – Howard
    F – Durant
    F – Randolph
    G – Bryant
    G – Nash

  • KB24

    Why does everybody love Steve Trash so much?

  • Royal

    Steve Nash was born in Africa and plays in the NBA, he is probably more black than me and you combined KB24

  • http://dsfjklf.com Jukai

    Royal for the win!!!
    Spetsnaz: Amare played a combined 30 hours at the center spot this season. But for some reason, the NBA wants him listed as a center. I do not know why. They have a problem with Frye being listed as a center (even though that’s the actual position he plays on Phoenix’s offense) but had no problem with Okur being the center and Boozer being the power forward… when they acted the exact same way as Frye/Amare.
    I dun get it, but whatever. Can’t believe both Wade and Kobe got first team. Ugh.

  • dino

    What no Bosh no Rondo no G Wallace no D Lee no Billups no Z Bo and no Boozer. D will shoulda been 1st team Wade 2nd. The All NBA teams are never 100% right. I’m Australian and i think Lee is better than Bogut im happy for Bogut but he is only there cause the Bucks made the playoffs and the Knicks suck. Dlee = underated 3rd team Gasol Bosh Lee Rondo JJ

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Hmmm actually I have no complaints about these, except for Rondo. I love Chris Bosh – not however in a “white hot” way – but on hindsight, how can you argue putting him over any of the 3rd team frontliners? Bogut got his arguably lesser talented squad into the playoffs. Duncan and Gasol’s squads might very well meet in the WCF, and both of them played integral roles on their teams’ success.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Bosh has done everything you can ask for on the court for the Raps for the last few years, and then some. People question his leadership ability – with good reason, actually. Someone has to be that locker room presence. Sam Mitchell was that guy for a few years and the Raps did well, improving each year. We replaced Sam with a coach constantly in denial (“I thought we played hard?”), and Chris Bosh had to step up and be that voice, which I am really sad to say he didn’t. He is a hell of a player and he gave a lot of effort, bled for the club. But I just don’t think it’s in his character to be a leader, and that’s not a knock on him, that’s just how things are.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    There are great players and there are great players who also are leaders of men. Kobe, MJ, Duncan, Lebron, Magic and Bird, Shaq, etc. belong to the latter. I would even put guys like Patrick Ewing, Stockton, Nash, Kidd, GP in that category, ring or not. The teams they lead embody their aura and attitude. This “oneness” leads to success.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    Bosh just isn’t one of them. He’s just not an alpha male. Is that a sin? How many of you commenters are alpha males? How many moronic booing Raptor fans out there are? There are many players in history with Bosh’s ability who just aren’t cut out to be the no 1 guy. T-Mac and Vince, ironically both former Raps, are the same. Kids scoff at T-Mac, but in the early 2000s you could put a hand in his face and jump at him, and he’s still hit a 3-point fadeaway on you. Same with guys like Rashard Lewis (too nice?), Dirk, Melo, Gasol, etc. World class players, but not the top dog type who can bend a team to their will and have that type of positive influence.

  • http://dsfjklf.com Jukai

    Uhhh I wouldn’t put Ewing in that category. Great player, too ‘me first’ to be a great leader. Even Jordan let Pax/Pippen/Kerr/Grant hit game winners. I still remember Ewing’s finger roll where two Knicks were open.

  • http://hoopistani.blogspot.com Hoopistani

    yup… roy chosen over rondo is my only real beef

  • J

    Deron was robbed.

  • J

    @nbk yes they had a great late push in the latter part of the season because of him. latter part. Dwill lead his team to the same 5th seed in the WEST. he is consistent throughout the year. throughout the year.

  • http://joeloholic.wordpress.com Joel O’s

    @Jukai: Right. Ewing’s stamp on the Knicks was nonetheless a lot bigger than Bosh’s on the Raptors. I’ve defended him to death over the past few years, but I think he really just is the American Pau Gasol: ludicrous ability, the heart/voice of a pussycat. All the best to him next year though. Bah.

  • rikson

    @DJLeonSmith: agree 100%…

  • bashmo

    honestly…the first team is great, cant deny it, but i want to see steve nash somewhere up there…just my opinion, since he had an excellent season, led the league in assists, shot 50% from the field and +40% from the 3pt line…all while leading phx to a 53 win, 3rd seed position in the playoffs, after not making the postseason last year. he really put it on himself to get things done, and did. just my two cents.

  • bashmo

    oh and yeah, b-roy over rondo is bull, considering rondo’s spectacular year, but oh well. Oh and DEFINITELY Bosh over Bogut…put gasol at Centre if you like, but take bogut OUTTA there, no disrespect, Bosh had a better season than he did, averaged about 9 more points, same # of boards…while dealing with injury in the process. Not only that, but he was an ALL-STAR. I commend bogut for playing well after the break, but CB4 had it going on the whole season.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Can’t argue with anyone on the list, or where they are placed on the list. Bogut was a slight surprise, but not really. He deserved it over Horford.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Brandon Roy is better than Rondo and he had a better year. In my opinion. Nobody who got left off the list got snubbed, they just weren’t better this year than the folks ahead of them.
    And, David Lee is a not a good defender. He’s a good scorer, great rebounder and good passer, but he is freaking horrible on defense.
    He is not better than Bogut, who blocks shots and can score on the block against many bigs. Lee has no post moves.

  • The Philosopher

    The League pretty much got it right again.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    LOL Allenp, “Lee has no post moves.” Come on, 20 ppg is still 20 ppg no matter how you see it, and he’s fantastic IN THE PAINT where it matters. Bogut can “score on the block” all he wants but Lee is still going to outscore him. And I don’t think you’ve watched him enough because he is actually quite good posting up now.

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Dude, Jukai, Ewing does belong with those guys if you’re talking about being a leader.. Come on now.

  • http://www.nba.com/suns Dacre

    awesome teams.

  • Shem

    CB4 is the best PF in the L! PERIOD. He has the best stats (and of course good stats on a bad team mean nothing) BUT i guarantee the Lakers would swap Pau for Bosh, same with the Spurs. I m not sure about the Mavs because that team is built around Dirk’s playstyle. Also, a lot of players out of position on these teams. KD doesn’t play power, Nash isn’t a sg and Duncan ain’t a small.

  • J

    ^ it doesn’t matter. the selection is just based on 2 guards 2 forwards and a center.
