LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo named to All-NBA First Team

Lakers Rockets Basketball

The Lakers are the biggest favorites in the conference finals since 2017, when Kevin Durant first joined the Golden State Warriors to form arguably the greatest team of all time. The Greek Freak was one of the two players who were unanimously voted to the squad, along with Lebron James.

Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James was named to the NBA's All-NBA First Team on Wednesday. James sets a massive feat in his own career, setting the new record in the NBA with his 16th NBA All-NBA Selection - thirteen selections to the First Team, a record of itself, along with two to the Second Team, and one to the Third Team.

The NBA will announce that Giannis Antetokounmpo is the 2019-20 league Most Valuable Player.

The award is Antetokounmpo's second straight, putting him on a long but elite list of players to win consecutive MVPs, joining Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Moses Malone, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan, Steve Nash, Tim Duncan, LeBron James and Stephen Curry. Now, he has his team four wins away from making it back to the Finals and the opportunity to win his fourth NBA Championship. He became the Mavs' all-time leader with 25 career triple-doubles in his second season in the National Basketball Association. He is the first player selected to the All-NBA First Team in either his first or second season since Duncan in 1998-99.

James was named All-NBA player for a record-breaking 16th time.

The second team included Nikola Jokic (Nuggets), Kawhi Leonard (Clippers), Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers), Chris Paul (Thunder) and Pascal Siakam (Raptors).

He explained that the phenomenon is known as the " Mediterranean cyclone ", which first appeared in 1995 onwards. The heavy rainfall turned the city of Karditsa, in one of Greece's biggest plains, into a lake, TV images showed.

Memphis Grizzlies' Ja Morant was the only player with unanimous selection to the NBA's All-Rookie Team. This marks the third All-NBA Team honor for both Butler and Gobert and the second for Jokić.

The All-NBA teams are selected by a panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters.

Alex Caruso converted a three-point play to open the second and start a 17-1 run by the Lakers to start the quarter and make it 53-39 before the Nuggets made their first field goal after more than five minutes.

The voting was conducted based on regular-season games played through March 11, and voters had to choose two guards, two forwards and one center for each team. Davis, the Lakers' other dynamic star, has done his share scoring nearly 30 points a game and bringing in just under 11 rebounds.

He finished the season as the league leader with 5 games of at least 25 points, 10 rebounds, 15 assists; 18 games with 30-10-7; and 50 games with 20-5-5.
