The North American Professional Basketball League (NBA) on Wednesday announced the “All-NBA first team” of the 2020/21 season. Three Europeans have secured a place in the five-man formation.
The Serbian Nikola Jokic (Denver Nuggets), who was previously voted MVP of the season, is without great surprise in the party. He is joined by the Greek Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks) and the Slovenian Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks). Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) and Kawhi Leonard (Los Angeles Clippers) are also on the team.
In the second team of the season, LeBron James (Los Angeles Lakers), Julius Randle (New York Knicks), Chris Paul (Phoenix Suns), Damian Lillard (Portland Trail Blazers) and Cameroonian Joel Embiid (Philadelphie 76ers) have been placed . Frenchman Rudy Gobert (Utah Jazz), Jimmy Butler (Miami Heat), Paul George (Los Angeles Clippers), Bradley Beal (Washington Wizzards) and Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn Nets) make up the third team.
A panel of one hundred specialized journalists put together the teams.
