All-NBA teams announced with no Warriors making 1st team
The All-NBA teams were revealed today in absence of a Thursday night game, as the per usual Inside The NBA on TNT announcement, which unsurprisingly had no members of the Golden State Warriors on the First Team All-NBA shortlist.

Having added a key superstar in Kevin Durant meant back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry needing to take a step back from his lauded 2015-16 production in order to accommodate his new teammate into the fold.
The two 25-point-a-game scorers easily made the Second Team All-NBA list and forward Draymond Green garnered Third Team All-NBA honors.
Regardless of personal accolades, Golden State has cleaned out during the postseason, going a perfect 10-0 to start the 2016-17 playoffs and sit two games away from a third straight trip to the NBA Finals, making the sacrifice of personal hardware worth it if it comes with yet another Larry O’Brien championship trophy.
