It’s no surprise that five playoff teams have players on the 2010-11 All-NBA first team. League MVP Derrick Rose was an obvious choice. He joined the gang after taking his Chicago Bulls to the best record in the NBA and into the Eastern Conference semifinals. LeBron James, who has led the Miami Heat into the East finals, was the lone unanimous choice among the players in the squad.
It is the first All-NBA selection for Rose, who averaged 25 points and 7.7 assists this season. He was the only player in the top 10 in scoring and assists. “King” James was second in the league in scoring at 26.7 points a game. Kobe Bryant earned his sixth straight All-NBA honor and ninth overall. Basketball spreads.
Dwight Howard, the NBA Defensive Player of the Year, made his fourth straight All-NBA team. The “Durantula” made All-NBA for the second time after leading the league in scoring at 27.7 points a game. Basketball lines.
The second team includes the Heat’s Dwyane Wade as well as the Thunder’s Russell Westbrook. Dirk Nowitzki, who has the Dallas Mavericks in the West finals, made the team too. All of those player are still battling towards an NBA championship in this year’s postseason.
To complete the second team we have Amare Stoudemire of the New York Knicks and the Lakers’ Pau Gasol. Basketball betting lines.
Congrats to these awesome athletes and good luck to all of those guys still competing in the postseason with their respective teams.
