No Brooklyn Nets on All-NBA; Brook Lopez Dissed

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

Close but no cigar. Brook Lopez finished just out of the running for the All-NBA team in results issued Thursday. Lopez finished behind Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol and Dwight Howard in the voting for center, despite receiving seven first team votes and 132 votes, more than two members of the third team and equal to Blake Griffin on the second team.

But in balloting for the 5 spot, Lopez was far behind Duncan, Gasol and Howard. Howard, whose season with the Lakers was filled with controversy and underachievement, finished with 203 votes. Gasol had 295 and Duncan, who played a lot of minutes with Tiago Splitter, had 392.

Only one other Net, Deron Williams, received any votes in the balloting and he garnered only six. Third team point guard Dwyane Wade, finished with 145.

LeBron James, the 2012-13 Kia NBA Most Valuable Player and winner of four of the previous five MVP awards, highlights the 2012-13 All-NBA First Team. James was the only player to receive all 119 First Team votes. Joining James on the First Team are Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Tim Duncan of the San Antonio Spurs, Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers, and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers.
