LeBron James now stands alone in All-NBA recognition history, getting there unanimously.

James was revealed Wednesday as an All-NBA player for a record 16th time, breaking the mark he shared with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Kobe Bryant, and Tim Duncan. He was a first-team pick on all 100 ballots, joining Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo as the only unanimous first-team selections this season.


Joining them on the first team: Houston guard James Harden, Lakers forward Anthony Davis, and Dallas guard Luka Doncic, who got the nod in just his second season in the NBA — becoming the first player to do that since Duncan in 1998-99.

The 21-year-old Doncic is the sixth player to make All-NBA at that age or younger, joining Kevin Durant, James, Duncan, Rick Barry and Max Zaslofsky.

James is a first-team pick for the 13th time in his career, extending his record there. Bryant and Karl Malone were 11-time first-teamers. Antetokounmpo, the reigning MVP and the frontrunner to win the award again this season, was picked unanimously for the second consecutive year.

Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard, Denver center Nikola Jokic, Portland guard Damian Lillard, Oklahoma City guard Chris Paul and Toronto forward Pascal Siakam were on the second team.

The third-team picks were Boston forward Jayson Tatum, Miami forward Jimmy Butler, Utah center Rudy Gobert, Philadelphia guard Ben Simmons and Houston guard Russell Westbrook.

Paul and Westbrook are now nine-time All-NBA players, Harden a six-time choice, Lillard is a five-timer and Antetokounmpo, Leonard and Davis are four-time selections. Butler and Gobert are three-time selections, Jokic a two-time choice and Siakam, Tatum and Simmons all joined Doncic as being on the team for the first time.


Harden and Doncic appeared on all 100 ballots — though only James and Antetokounmpo were unanimous as first-team choices on every ballot. Davis and Jokic were on 99 ballots, and Leonard appeared on 98.

The voting was conducted based on regular-season games played through March 11, and voters had to choose two guards, two forwards and one center for each team. Milwaukee forward Khris Middleton did not make All-NBA even though he appeared on more ballots (60) than Simmons (43) and Westbrook (38); they made the team as guards. Philadelphia’s Joel Embiid got 39 votes and did not make the team either, after finishing fourth among centers.

Middleton led forwards who didn’t make the team in votes, Embiid did the same for centers and Washington’s Bradley Beal (26 votes) did the same for guards.

In his promotional debut, Fanny (9-1) will challenge bantamweight champion Cartwright (8-0) in the Cage Warriors 115 main event Friday at BEC Arena in Manchester, Englannd.

The 26-year-old Dutchman, who’s finished each of his past five wins, is expecting an all-out war against fellow finisher Cartwright.

“He’s a banger. He likes to fight, so that’s very nice,” Fanny told MMA Junkie. “I like to fight, too, and we’ll see who’s going to fight it out. He comes forward, I go forward, so two people will collide. It’s a straight-forward style, so I don’t have to think of much. Let him come forward, I’ll go forward, and I really like that.

“I see him coming forward trying to take my head off. I see me going in there and taking his head off. It’s just going to be a banger. Everyone’s going to be on the edge of their seats waiting to see who’s going to throw the first punch. And as soon as we throw that punch, then we’ll see who dictates the fight. If it’s for me, it’s going to be an early night.”

Fanny knows that by challenging for the belt in his first Cage Warriors fight, he has a big opportunity ahead of him. He plans on bouncing Cartwright out of the ranks of the unbeaten in hopes of catching the UFC’s attention with a statement win.

“It confirmed for me that they see a lot of potential in me, and it’s a big opportunity to show them that in the first fight that everything they see in me is true. But for me, it’s nothing new,” Fanny said. “It’s just another fight. It’s just proving myself to somebody else. We don’t look past him, nor do we look past Cage Warriors, but we do think that will be the springboard to the UFC – that will put me on the global map.”
