David Lee named to All-NBA Third Team; Stephen Curry snubbed

The NBA named its All-NBA teams on Thursday, and piggybacking on his all-star appearance, David Lee was named to the third team.

Lee is the first Warriors player to be named an All-NBA player since Latrell Sprewell was first team in 1994.

Here are the selections:

2012-13 ALL-NBA FIRST TEAM

Position Player, Team (1st Team Votes), Points
Forward, LeBron James, Miami (119), 595
Forward, Kevin Durant, OKC (102), 555
Center, Tim Duncan, San Antonio (45), 392
Guard, Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers (91), 521
Guard, Chris Paul, L.A. Clippers (97), 537

2012-13 ALL-NBA SECOND TEAM

Position, Player, Team (1st Team Votes), Points
Forward, Carmelo Anthony, New York (24), 397
Forward, Blake Griffin, L.A. Clippers, 132
Center, Marc Gasol, Memphis (38), 295
Guard, Tony Parker, San Antonio (16), 273
Guard, Russell Westbrook, OKC (20), 306

2012-13 ALL-NBA THIRD TEAM

Position, Player, Team (1st Team Votes) Points
Forward, David Lee, Golden State, 79
Forward, Paul George, Indiana, 73
Center, Dwight Howard, L.A. Lakers (17), 203
Guard, Dwayne Wade, Miami (3), 145
Guard, James Harden, Houston (5), 253

A notable omission, of course, is Warriors fearless leader Stephen “Steve” Curry. He finished with the most points (72) than any other guard who didn’t make any of the teams but was still substantially behind Dwyane Wade’s 145.

Cue the standard subdued and polite Mark Jackson outrage when Warriors have been shunned by NBA spotlight:

“As far as Steph, the great thing is that the world now knows, even if the voters don’t.”
