Kevin Durant named to All-NBA First Team, Russell Westbrook makes Second Team

The NBA announced the members of the All-NBA Teams today.

Kevin Durant was named to the All-NBA First Team and Russell Westbrook was named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Joining Durant on the First Team is LeBron James, Tim Duncan, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul.

Joining Westbrook on the Second Team is Carmelo Anthony, Blake Griffin, Marc Gasol and Tony Parker.

James Harden made the Third Team along with David Lee, Paul George, Dwight Howard and Dwyane Wade.

Durant making the First Team was of course expected. Westbrook getting the nod on the Second Team is pretty impressive. I thought maybe Harden would have made it ahead of him.

Stephen Curry looks like a pretty big snub right now. I thought he would have made it over Wade. You could also make the case for Zach Randolph making the team ahead of a few players.
