First team of the NBA:
-Steph Curry
-James Harden
-Giannis Antetokounmpo
-Paul George
-Nikola Jokic

Second team of the NBA:
-Damian Lillard
-Kyrie Irving
-Kevin Durant
-Kawhi Leonard
-Joel Embiid

Third team of the NBA:
-Russell Westbrook
-Kemba Walker
-Lebron James
-Blake Griffin
-Rudy Gobert

Curry averaged 27.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.2 badists, while shooting 47.2 percent in total and 43.7 percent from a 3-point territory.

This is the first time he received First Team honors since he became the only MVP in NBA history during the 2015-16 season.

The NBA's two-time MVP was Second Team in 2016-17 and Third Team last year (because he only appeared in 51 games). Curry was the second team in 2013-14 and the first team in 2014-15.

Durant averaged 26.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and a career record of 5.9 badists per game this season. He shot 52.1 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from the depth.

The reigning two-time MVP of the NBA Finals has now formed an NBA team in nine of the last 10 years: first team in 2010 until 2014 and again in 2018, second team in 2016, 2017 and 2019 (he was injured in 2015).

Durant is unmistakably a better player than George, but this kind of thing happens with the prizes of the regular season.

Each team of the NBA is composed of two guards, two forwards and one center. This is different from voting for the All-Star Game, in which fans select two guards and three "front" players.
