Kevin Durant, Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant rounded out the rest of the first team.
The NBA released the 15 members of the three All-NBA teams on Thursday. All the usual suspects were on the first and second teams, but there were a few surprises on the third:
First: Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Tim Duncan.
Second: Tony Parker, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Marc Gasol.
Third: James Harden, Dwyane Wade, Paul George, David Lee, Dwight Howard.
Duncan, at age 37, made his first All-NBA team since 2007, which was also the last time the Spurs won a championship. He averaged 18 points and 10 rebounds on 50 percent shooting while anchoring a revitalized San Antonio defense.
Tony Parker joined Duncan on the All-NBA second team, making the Spurs one of five teams, along with the Heat, Thunder, Lakers and Clippers, to have two selections.
Marc Gasol was the only first-time selection to make the second team. James Harden, Paul George and David Lee all received their first nods on the third team.
