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.

The top team was comprised of LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, and Anthony Davis.

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.

Another key omission was shooting guard Klay Thompson, who had made the third team in the past two seasons and was outdone by an emerging DeMar DeRozan of the Toronto Raptors this season.

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.
