Tony Parker named Second Team All-NBA
Awards season in the NBA continues as the All-NBA teams were announced on Thursday. Tony Parker was the lone Spur, the same Spurs that tied for the best record in the league in the regular season, to make either of the three All-NBA teams.
The All-NBA teams were voted on by the media, where a first team vote gets you five points, a second team votes gets 3 and a third team vote gets a single point. LeBron James was the leading vote-getter with 596 points. Tony Parker ended up with 367, more than 200 behind Kobe Bryant, who ended up on the First Team. So you can continue to hate Kobe even though the Lakers were swept out of the playoffs by Oklahoma City.
Tim Duncan received a total of 18 points in the voting, more than 100 behind Dirk Nowitzki. Dirk ended up on the All-NBA Third Team. Do with that information what you will. Manu Ginobili garnered a total of three points. Last season Manu Ginobili made Third Team All-NBA.
