Davis named First Team All-NBA; Wall on Third Team

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.

All three teams can be seen here, with voting totals:

 

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

    Draymond Green with more first team votes than Curry, Durant, Greek Freak, IT, Wall, and Butler, not to mention Cousins.

    Whoever did not vote for Lebron and Westbrook for first team should have their voting powers revoked.

    Rudy Gobert is a great player, but he’s not better than DeMarcus Cousins.

    Wow! Fantastic news! Mo should reconsider his choice… Did Shaka coach any of those guys?

    NBA powers hate Cal too. Can’t swallow pride and put an all UK team. It would be too shameful for the rest of college bball

    Maybe an even better question is what Jag off didn’t have Lebron and Russ on their first team.

    Harden is so fricken overrated; so is Draymond Green. Granted, Green is the NBA MVP of mean muggin’ and testicle rubbin’.
