The NBA announced the 15 players who will make up the 2020-21 All-NBA teams prior to Game 4 between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night. Unsurprisingly, only a few of the players on the teams will play in the next game, with Giannis Antetokounmpo on the first team and Kyrie Irving on the third.
Nikola Jokic, the star of the Denver Nuggets and NBA MVP, is the first-team captain. Antetokounmpo, Stephen Curry, Luka Doncic, and Kawhi Leonard are among his teammates.
Joel Embiid, a first-team player who was moved down to the second team due to only having one center spot, was the major name on the second team. LeBron James, Damian Lillard, Julius Randle, and Chris Paul were all present.
Irving, Jimmy Butler, Bradley Beal, Paul George, and Rudy Gobert round out the third-team selections.
Aside from these, the following names received votes.
While Antetokounmpo had a fantastic season, it’s interesting that he was the only unanimous choice among the group. Presumably, Jokic’s solitary second-team selection came because one voter was swayed by player positions and put Embiid on the first team, despite the fact that Embiid was eligible as forward and center.
