Har­den, James get nod

NT News - - SPORT -

FOR Cleve­land’s LeBron James, there was his­tory. For Hous­ton’s James Har­den, there was af­fir­ma­tion.

James and Har­den head­lined the All-NBA first team that was un­veiled overnight. James made the first team for a record-ty­ing 11th time, match­ing the mark set by Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone.

And Har­den was the only player to be unan­i­mously se­lected as a first-teamer this year, re­turn­ing to that group for the third time in the last four sea­sons.

Join­ing James and Har­den on the first team were Ok­la­homa City’s Rus­sell West­brook, San An­to­nio’s Kawhi Leonard and New Or­leans’ An­thony Davis.

West­brook, Leonard and Davis all are first-team­ers for the sec­ond time. James and West­brook were on 99 first­team bal­lots.
