Giannis, Jokic, Steph make All-NBA 1st team, LeBron gets 2nd team
The NBA unveiled its All-NBA selections Tuesday for the 2021-22 season.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was the lone unanimous selection. MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets collected all but one first-team vote, while Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry received 98 of a possible 100 first-team votes.
First-team votes were worth five points, second-team votes were worth three, and third-team votes were worth one.

Boston Celtics wing Jayson Tatum and Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell are now ineligible for the super-max rookie-scale extension after failing to make an All-NBA team. Both could've netted an additional $33 million during their next contracts, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks.
Tatum finished with 69 total points, trailing third-team selection Paul George by just 20.
