Anthony Davis lost $24 million last year by not being named to any of the All-NBA teams, a pretty costly bonus clause in his contract with the Pelicans. He jokingly said last week that it would mean a lot to be named All-NBA this season, “but last year it would’ve meant a lot more.”
Well today, Davis bounced back with First Team All-NBA honors for the 2016-17 season, narrowly edging out Rudy Gobert for the center spot. Davis joins Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard and LeBron James on the league’s First Team All-NBA.

As you can see, John Wall was named Third Team All-NBA.
