LeBron James, James Harden Headline 2016-17 All-NBA Teams

The NBA announced the All-NBA teams for the 2016-17 season today.
James Harden was the only unanimous selection, and LeBron James joined Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone as the only players in NBA history with 11 First Team selections.
Notable on the list of snubs is Paul George , who won’t be eligible for the new Designated Player Exemption, making a departure from Indiana more likely.
