Golden State Warriors: why Thompson should have made an All-NBA team

For him to not to be on an All-NBA team, I think that's pretty insane.

"I think it's bulls--", Green said. "We win 67 games or something like that".

Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant, the NBA Most Valuable Player award winners from the past three seasons, were matter-of-fact about settling for second-team status when the All-NBA squads were announced. I don't really understand it.

"They got it right, I guess, if you're looking at it", Durant said.

Curry and Durant were named to the Second Team.

The former Spartan has been considered one of the top all-around players in the National Basketball Association and Marquette King even tweeted on Thursday that Draymond is better than LeBron James. After breaking his own National Basketball Association record by making 402 three-pointers last season, he led the league in three-pointers for a fifth consecutive year with 324.

The first-team berths went to James Harden,LeBron James,Russell Westbrook, Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis. You wouldn't consider either player close to All-NBA level now, and it's notable that players like Russell Westbrook (injured), Kyrie Irving (Cavaliers were awful), and Klay Thompson (hadn't broke out) all were left off. For Thompson, there are too many great guards for him to have earned a spot this season.

The Golden State Warriors are the best team in the league.

DeRozan's toaster wasn't quite as successful - the Raptors won five of their last six regular season games and one playoff series after the signing, but they were swept away by Lebron James's Cleveland Cavaliers soon after. "Especially nowadays with - who votes on that?" "A lot of pressure, so it's hard to come up with those teams". "Obviously, I feel like I should be a first-team player, but it is what it is".

"That guy", Thompson said of Reyes to the Journal, "is responsible for 25 out of 26 wins".

Durant was informed that, yes, the votes become public in June.

But it wasn't complete. Curry is the first Warrior to be named to four-straight All-NBA teams since Chris Mullin from 1988-89 to 1991-92. The star point guard, who just completed his fifth season in the National Basketball Association, has upped his production every year. Curry led the league in three-point field goals for a fifth consecutive year, following his NBA-record 402 threes in 2015-16 with 316 triples in 2016-17, and now ranks 10th on the NBA's all-time three-point list (1,907 threes) while owning four of the top five single-season three-point totals in league history.
