Newly crowned MVP Joel Embiid headlines the All-NBA first team of the season, while MVP runner-up Nikola Jokic land on the All-NBA second team of the season.

Starting next year, the All-NBA team will no longer be broken down by position meaning the presumed second-best player in the NBA one season, such as Embiid in 2021 and 2022 and Jokic now, will not have to be relegated to second-team anything.

Joining Embiid on the first team were Boston’s Jayson Tatum and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo at forward, and Dallas’ Luka Doncic and Oklahoma City’s Shai Gilgeous-Alexander at guard.

On the second team along with Jokic were Miami’s Jimmy Butler and Boston’s Jaylen Brown at forward, and Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Cleveland’s Donovan Mitchell at guard.

The third team center was Sacramento’s Domantas Sabonis, with the Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James now a 19-time selection, extending his record and New York’s Julius Randle getting the forward spots and Sacramento’s De’Aaron Fox and Portland’s Damian Lillard the guard selections.

Omitted this year after making it last year: first-team Devin Booker; second-team Ja Morant, Kevin Durant and DeMar DeRozan; and third-team Karl-Anthony Towns, Chris Paul, Trae Young and Pascal Siakam.

James is thirteen-time first-team, three-time second-team and now three-time third-team pick.

Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar were all 15-time selections, tied for the second-most in NBA history.
