Some Win, Some Lose With All-NBA Team Announcement
They’ve got millions on the line. As the All-NBA team lineup was called, there were conspicuous absences — most notably Pacers star Paul George and Utah’s Gordon Hayward, who now won’t be eligible for multimillion dollar bonuses and may turn to free agency. Rockets guard James Harden, meanwhile, got unanimous votes for the first team, upping his chance at MVP. LeBron James, who fell one short of unanimous, was named to the first team for the 11th time, tying the record held by Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant.
