Kobe Bryant was named to the All-NBA first team for the eighth time in his career, his fifth consecutive. Joining Kobe in the first team were LeBron James and Dwight Howard, both with 610 first team votes; young Thunder star, Kevin Durant (579 votes); and Dwayne Wade (520 votes). Kobe Bryant was selected with 604 votes.

Pau Gasol was named to the NBA’s third team for his second year, racking in the honors last season as well.

    the elbow … the ELBOW ……. THE ELBOW!!!!!!
    what to do about the frik—in elbow.
    oh, if the Cavs don’t make it to Finals, it’s because of that elbow.
    if they DO … well, it’s an World Wide Monumental Olympic phenomenon – HOW ON EARTH can an injured player play professional basketball with an injury! LeBron is truly a hero!!!
    What would happen if an athlete (shudder) broke his finger – the one on his shooting hand – and continued to play??? Then we’re talkin’ friggin Nobel Prize here, man!
    Thank heavens LeBron didn’t break his widdle finger … or he’d be ……

      Kobe is the best player on the planet period. I am looking forward to the decline of Lebron James and then the Media, Stern & Company will immediately turn on him and start hyping Durant. Can lebron deal with a myriad of injuries like kobe and still perform at a high level without trying to bring attention to his elbow does’nt look like it. I want to hear what the story is tonight if they fail to beat Boston.
