They could very well face off in the NBA Finals here soon. But for now, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo are on the same team.
The Association announced its All-NBA teams on Thursday. It’s no real surprise that Curry and Giannis headline the first team. They are joined by Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George, Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic.
Meanwhile, the second team is headed by Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, who could also face off in the NBA Finals starting on May 30. They are joined by Damian Lillard, Joel Embiid and Kyrie Irving.
Despite an injury-plagued 2018-19 campaign, it is somewhat of a surprise to see Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James relegated to the third team. He’s joined by Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Rudy Gobert and Kemba Walker.
