The NBA announced that Houston Rockets guard James Harden has been named All-NBA First Team. The media voted for All-NBA First, Second and Third Teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis.

Also, Wall recorded another career-best with 50 double-doubles, joining the elite company of James Harden and Russell Westbrook as the only guards with 50 double-doubles or more.

Davis, 6-10, 252, finished the season ranked fourth in the National Basketball Association points per game (28.0 - career-high), seventh in rebounds per game (11.8 - career-high) and second in blocks per game (2.2), becoming just the eighth player in National Basketball Association history to finish the season ranked among the top seven of all three categories.

All those awards will be announced in NY on June 26, and complete voting results will be released at that time.

Making the third team were forwards Jimmy Butler of the Chicago Bulls and Draymond Green of the Warriors, guards DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors and John Wall of the Washington Wizards and center DeAndre Jordan of the LA Clippers.

Fred Katz is the Thunder beat writer for the Norman Transcript and CNHI Oklahoma as well as the host of the Locked on Thunder podcast.

Davis averaged 28 points (career-high), 11.8 rebounds (career-high) and 2.2 blocks per game this year.

Leonard also is in line to prosper by his second straight first-team selection.

Harden earned all 500 points by being named as one of five first-team selections on each of the 100 ballots.

George and Hayward fell well short of making any of the three All-NBA teams, which means they will not be eligible to get the "supermax" extensions from IN and Utah this summer and now will face more questions about their futures IN their respective cities.

Two former Kentucky Wildcats and a former Texas A&M Aggies hooper were among the choices for the 2017 All-NBA teams.

In a career already defined by gaudy numbers, Davis put together his best one yet. "Obviously I feel like I should be a first-team player, but it is what it is".

Sure, no Warriors players had better seasons than any player voted into the first team.

In Wall's case, he will become eligible in July to sign a four-year contract extension that would allow him to be paid a max contract at 35 percent of the salary cap beginning in the 2019-20 season - the year after his current contract expires and a year earlier than he would be eligible to be paid at that rate otherwise.
