NBA Announces 2012-13 All-NBA Teams
The NBA released the media’s selections for the ’12-13 All-NBA teams, and to the surprise of no one, LeBron James was the only player to earn all 119 first place votes. After a stellar year that saw James earn his fourth MVP in five years, the unanimous selection was well deserved.
Joining James are Kevin Durant (fourth All-NBA First_Team selection), Tim Duncan (10th), Kobe Bryant (11th) and Chris Paul (third). Bryant’s 11th selection ties him with Karl Malone for the most First-Team selections in NBA history.
