Tony Parker was named to the All-NBA 2nd Team for the third consecutive year on Wednesday. Parker averaged 16.7 points per game to go along with 5.7 assists and 2.3 rebounds.
Joining Parker in the backcourt is Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry. The two forwards are Minnesota Timberwolves‘ Kevin Love and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, while Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard rounds out the team at center.
Here is a look at the All-NBA 1st Team:
F – Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder
F – LeBron James, Miami Heat
C – Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls
G – James Harden, Houston Rockets
G – Chris Paul, Los Angeles Clippers
And the 3rd All-NBA Team:
F – LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland Trail Blazers
F – Paul George, Indiana Pacers

The case could have been made for Tim Duncan to make one of these teams, as he averaged 15.1 points per game, 9.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists. This will be the first time in Duncan’s seventeen-year career that he will not be featured on one of the three All-NBA teams, which is remarkable.
Tonight the Spurs start their quest for their 5th NBA Championship, and TP will be a big part of that! Go Spurs Go!
