Kobe Bryant voted to record-tying 11th All-NBA First Team, Dwight Howard on Third Team


Kobe Bryant has been voted to the All-NBA First team for a record-tying 11th time, a feat only ever reached by one other player: Karl Malone. Bryant was joined on the first team by LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Tim Duncan and Chris Paul.

Bryant has also been on the second and third teams two times a piece, meaning he’s only ever missed a place on the All-NBA teams twice in his seventeen-year NBA career.

Dwight Howard was voted to the third team, his second appearance there. He has been voted to the first team five times in the past. Pau Gasol was the only other member of the Los Angeles Lakers to receive any All-NBA votes with a total of 4.

According to NBA.com, the All-NBA teams are decided by votes from 119 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada.


Are the people who pushed for Dwight to go to Brooklyn behind the Houston rumors?

Who does Kobe think the best player in the league is?

Did the Lakers nearly trade Marc Gasol before the Pau trade?
