2012 All-NBA Teams Announced, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant Lead First Team

The awards and accolades for the 2011-12 NBA season continue to roll out. Art Garcia, Director of Athletic Communications at UT Arlington, reports that the full selections for the All-NBA teams have been decided.

The All-NBA First Team consists of Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. Second Team for 2012 is Kevin Love, Blake Griffin, Andrew Bynum, Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook. The third team is Dirk Nowitzki, Carmelo Anthony, Tyson Chandler, Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.

The only difference between the First Team between last season and this season is the swapping out of Derrick Rose for Chris Paul. Rose had an injury-plagued season to follow up his MVP year in 2010-11. This is the second time Paul has made First Team, with his first appearance following the 2007-8 season.

James led all players with 118 First Team votes and 596 total points. Durant was second, with 117 First Team votes and 591 points. Bryant received 104 First Team votes and 568 points, Howard received 75 First Team votes and 476 points, while Paul received 74 First Team votes and 484 points.

Parker received the most First Team votes among all other players, with 41, while Bynum received the highest points total among all other players, with 400.
