http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=4326

LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers, the 2008-09 Most Valuable Player, was a unanimous selection to the 2008-09 All-NBA First Team, the NBA announced today. Joining James on the First Team are Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, Dwight Howard of the Orlando Magic, Dirk Nowitzki of the Dallas Mavericks and Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat.

The All-NBA Second Team consists of New Orleans’ Chris Paul and Portland’s Brandon Roy at guard, San Antonio’s Tim Duncan and Boston’s Paul Pierce at forward, and Houston’s Yao Ming at center.

The All-NBA Third Team includes Denver’s Chauncey Billups and San Antonio’s Tony Parker at guard, Denver’s Carmelo Anthony and the Los Angeles Lakers’ Paul Gasol at forward, and Phoenix’s Shaquille O’Neal at center.

Funny, Duncan can be a center for All-Defensive team purposes, but a Forward for All-NBA team purposes. . . . . make up your freakin' mind!!

Wow. So far, I have no big problems with that list. Maybe Duncan should go over Dirk, but I really don't think thats big of a deal.

Good to see both Billups and Melo making the 3rd team. I don't agree with Paul being on the 2nd team but who can you take him out to put him in there? Either way looks pretty solid to me:confusedshrug:

All D teams dont have to follow any position I dont think. ive seen 3 guard teams. 3 forward. Not sure ive seen 2 center teams though so....

Looks like a pretty good list to me, no real objections.

I'm sure they somewhat follow positions. If they didn't, there is no way Hakeem or Robinson would've ever been on the 2nd team.

Lucky for Shaq that its that way, otherwise he would have gotten bumped with Duncan getting the 2nd team spot, Yao getting the 3rd team spot, and Garnett moving in to the 3rd team.

Deron Williams had the most votes of anyone not making the team, seems to be a pattern for him with allstar selections and now this.

Great, i have no complaints...good to see Roy making the second team and he's only getting better :applause:

What? Melo and Parker got first eam votes and BRoy didn't?

:roll:

Cool... can't wait for him to surprise all the media next year.

EDIT:

And it seems like the media is the only group still sleeping on Roy. Everyone else seems to know how good he is. :)

Looking at the votes it seems like 10 voters or so picked 3 guards for the first team (Paul + Bryant + Wade), so positions really arent that fixed.
