Thursday, May 23, 2019

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Houston Rockets guard James Harden have been unanimously selected to the 2018-19 All-NBA First Team.

Antetokounmpo and Harden both received All-NBA First Team votes on all 100 ballots to finish with 500 points each. This marks the first All-NBA First Team honor for Antetokounmpo, a two-time Second Team member. Harden earns his fifth First Team nod, including his third in a row as a unanimous selection.

The 2018-19 All-NBA First Team also features Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry (482 points; 91 First Team votes), Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George (433 points; 71 First Team votes) and Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (411 points; 59 First Team votes).

Curry is an All-NBA First Team selection for the third time. George, a four-time Third Team honoree, makes his First Team debut. Jokic has been named to his first All-NBA Team.

Antetokounmpo, Harden and George are the three finalists for the 2018-19 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. The winner will be revealed at the 2019 NBA Awards on Monday, June 24 at 9 p.m. ET on TNT. The third annual NBA Awards, honoring this season’s top performers, will take place at Barker Hangar in Los Angeles.

The 2018-19 All-NBA Second Team consists of Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid (372 points), Warriors forward Kevin Durant (358), Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard (306), Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (242) and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving (195).

The 2018-19 All-NBA Third Team is made up of Thunder guard Russell Westbrook (178 points), Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin (115), Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James (111), Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert (89) and Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker (51).

James has tied the NBA record for most All-NBA selections with 15, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan. Walker, an eight-year veteran, has earned his first All-NBA honor.

The All-NBA Teams were selected by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. The media voted for All-NBA First, Second and Third Teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis. Voters selected two guards, two forwards and one center for each team, choosing players at the position they play regularly. Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes..


THIS DAY IN THE NBA

May 23, 1975 Golden State notched an NBA Finals game record 17 steals during their 109-101 victory over Washington in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

May 23, 1976 Boston center Dave Cowens dominated the opener of the NBA Finals against Phoenix with a 25-point, 21-rebound performance as the Celtics defeated the Suns, 98-87. Boston eventually took its 13th NBA title in six games.

May 23, 1978 Portland center Bill Walton was named the NBA’s MVP for the 1977-78 season. Walton led his club to a 50-10 record before succumbing to multiple foot injuries, playing in 58 games and averaging 18.9 ppg and 13.2 rpg.

May 23, 1982 The Philadelphia 76ers, after leading Boston three games to one only to have the Celtics draw even, invaded Boston Garden and came away with a 120-106 win in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals. “Beat L.A!” was the chant that resounded through Boston Garden late in the game. Although the Sixers were beating their beloved team, Boston fans wanted anyone to beat the Los Angeles Lakers. It didn’t happen, though, as the Lakers beat the Sixers in six games for the NBA title.

May 23, 2002 The NBDL established new league offices in Greenville, S.C.
