The San Antonio Spurs are well represented on the All-NBA Teams that have been released today.

Kawhi Leonard has been announced as a member of the First Team, while LaMarcus Aldridge has been named to the Third Team.

In a remarkable feat that really drops your jaw, the San Antonio Spurs have now had at least one player make an All-NBA Team in 19 consecutive years.

Leonard is joined on the First Team by Russell Westbrook, Stephen Curry, LeBron James, and DeAndre Jordan.

Leonard received a final point total of 575. He garnered 94 first team votes and 35 second team votes. It’s very telling that none of the voters gave him a third team vote, basically indicating that he had an elite season only worthy of the top 2 teams.

Aldridge finished with a final point total of 103. His results were far more varied than Leonard’s, and that’s to be expected. Aldridge received 3 first team votes, 11 second team votes, and 55 third team votes.

Aldridge is joined on the Third Team by Paul George, Andre Drummond, Klay Thompson, and Kyle Lowry. Out of those players, only Aldridge and Drummond received any first team votes.

The Second team was announced as Kevin Durant, Draymond Green, DeMarcus Cousins, Chris Paul, and Damian Lillard.

It looks like the closest position turned out to be center, where DeAndre Jordan barely edged out DeMarcus Cousins for a First Team nod by a relatively slim 40 points.

Some of these results are extremely fascinating. Stephen Curry was the only player to receive all First Team votes.

Damian Lillard was the only player on the Second Team to not receive any first team votes.

No shooting guards are on either of the first two teams, and Klay Thompson on the Third Team is their lone representative.

The Spurs also had a couple players get votes but not make any of the teams. Tim Duncan got 3 voting points and Tony Parker got 1.

Congrats to all those who made one of these teams! They are the elite players that the league has to offer.
