Stephen Curry, LeBron James named first-team All-NBA

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Stephen Curry has knocked down another honor.

The dead-eye point guard who led the Golden State Warriors to a record 73 wins in the regular season was named to the All-NBA first team Thursday. The league's MVP was the only player named on all 129 ballots in voting by a panel of writers and broadcasters.

Curry was joined on the first team by Cleveland's LeBron James, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers' DeAndre Jordan.

James is a first-team choice for the 10th time in 13 seasons. Curry is on the first team for the second straight year, while Westbrook, Leonard and Jordan are among the top five for the first time.

On the second team are: Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Warriors forward Draymond Green, Sacramento center DeMarcus Cousins, Clippers guard Chris Paul and Portland guard Damian Lillard.

Indiana's Paul George leads the third-team selections with San Antonio's LaMarcus Aldridge, Detroit's Andre Drummond, Golden State's Klay Thompson and Toronto's Kyle Lowry.

The media voted for the teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis. Voters were asked to select two guards, two forwards and one center for each team, choosing players at the position they play regularly.

Curry averaged 30.1 points to lead the league and set a record by making 402 3-pointers. He also shot over 90 percent from the free-throw line while averaging 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He joined Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan and Steve Nash as the only guards to win MVP in back-to-back seasons.

James joins Jordan, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Elgin Baylor, Bob Cousy, Tim Duncan, Bob Pettit and Jerry West as 10-time first-team selections, one behind the record shared by Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.
