Honors

The All-NBA Team is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) honor bestowed on the best players in the league following every NBA season. The voting is conducted by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada.[1] The team has been selected in every season of the league's existence, dating back to its inaugural season in 1946.[2] The All-NBA Team originally had two teams, but since 1988 it is composed of three five-man lineups—a first, second, and third team, typically comprising a total of 15 roster spots.

Players receive five points for a first team vote, three points for a second team vote, and one point for a third team vote. The five players with the highest point totals make the first team, with the next five making the second team and so forth. In the case of a tie at the fifth position of any team, the roster is expanded. If the first team consists of six players due to a tie, the second team will still consist of five players with the potential for more expansion in the event of additional ties. A tie has occurred only once, in 1952, when Bob Davies and Dolph Schayes tied in votes received.[1] From 1946 to 1955, players were selected without regard to position; however, since 1956, each team has consisted of two forwards, one center, and two guards.[2]

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan hold the record for the most total selections with fifteen.[3] Karl Malone and Shaquille O'Neal follow with fourteen total honors,[3] while Schayes, Bob Cousy, Jerry West, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Dirk Nowitzki have twelve selections.[3] Malone and Bryant are tied for the most All-NBA first team honors with eleven, while Cousy, Bob Pettit, Elgin Baylor, West, Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan and Michael Jordan are all tied for second-most with ten.[3]

  • d Ron Artest changed his name into Metta World Peace on September 16, 2011.[7]
  • e Amar'e Stoudemire's first name had previously been spelled incorrectly as "Amaré" or "Amare" since joining the NBA, but was changed to "Amar'e" in October 2008.[8][9]
