Curry, LeBron, Westbrook Headline All-NBA Teams

The NBA has announced its three All-NBA teams for the 2015/16 season, with unanimous MVP Stephen Curry also leading the way in first-team nods (129) and overall points (645). After Curry, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook were the leading vote-getters, followed by Kawhi Leonard. DeAndre Jordan also earned a spot on the All-NBA first team.

Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard landed on the All-NBA second team, triggering the Derrick Rose Rule and ensuring that the max extension he signed last summer will be worth more than 25% of the salary cap. Per Danny Leroux of RealGM and Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link), the terms of Lillard’s contract dictate that his extension will be worth 27.5%, rather than the full 30% allowable by the Rose Rule.

As for Anthony Davis, he just missed the cut for the All-NBA third team, so the Rose Rule won’t apply to his max extension with the Pelicans, costing him an extra $20MM+ over the life of his contract.

Here are all three All-NBA teams for the 2015/16 season, with voting point totals in parentheses:

All-NBA First Team:

  • Forward: LeBron James, Cavaliers (637)
  • Forward: Kawhi Leonard, Spurs (575)
  • Center: DeAndre Jordan, Clippers (317)
  • Guard: Stephen Curry, Warriors (645)
  • Guard: Russell Westbrook, Thunder (627)

All-NBA Second Team:

All-NBA Third Team:

James Harden, Paul Millsap, Anthony Davis, and Al Horford also received more than 75 voting points.

Nothing against Kyle Lowry, LaMarcus Aldridge, nor Kay Thompson, but where the heck is Jimmy Butler!! He is one of the best 2-way players in the NBA!! In my opinion, there are only two-three, 2-way guards/forwards that are more complete players than Jimmy Butler. Those guys are LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, and possibly Paul George. Right after that is Jimmy Butler. He has improved every year he has been in the league. Also, he has evolved as not only one of the best, toughest, and most versatile defenders in the NBA, but now he is also a reliable, consistent, and… Read more »

If Cousins were on a better team, he would be a first-team choice every season.
