Bucks’ Antetokounmpo, Rockets’ Harden lead All-NBA teams

Bucks star Giannis Antentokounmpo was one of two unanimous vote-getters for the All-NBA team.

The NBA released its All-NBA teams, with Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and James Harden being unanimous first-team selections.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George and Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic each made the first team for the first time.

Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry rounded out the first team.

Perhaps the most-notable element of the announcements, is that Portland Trail Blazers point guard Damian Lillard (second team) and Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker (third team) are now eligible for supermax extensions, as related by Shams Charania of Stadium. The same applies to Antetokounmpo.
