Derrick Favors will also attend Team USA minicamp in Vegas, July 22-25, per agent.
Just for the record if I had voted Kobe was my 3rd team all-nba G - Paul, Parker on 1st Westbrook, Harden on 2nd then Kobe - all in West.
All-NBA centers, in descending order: Duncan, Gasol, Dwight. One voter put Big Al on the first team.
Jazz C Al Jefferson got more All-NBA votes (20) than Deron Williams (6). Much tougher to find room for good guards than centers, though.

Jazz play on July 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12 at the Orlando Pro Summer League. As was previously rumored, it will be a tournament format this year.
All-NBA first team: LeBron, Durant, The Big Fundamental, Kobe and Li'l Coach Killer (CP3, not D-Will).
All-NBA voting was just released. Surprisingly, Jazz C Al Jefferson got one first-place vote and would be on the fifth team if that existed.
Got to love diehard Jazz fans, several of whom asked if I counted Jordan's push-off on Bryon Russell in his playoff foul total.
Michael Jordan committed 541 fouls in 7,474 minutes in the playoffs in his career. That's one every 13.8 minutes.
In his career, LeBron has committed 293 fouls in 5,396 minutes in the playoffs. That's one every 18.4 minutes, if my calculator is correct.
LeBron 15 fouls in 355 minutes vs. 9 playoff games vs. Milwaukee, Chicago. Five fouls in 47 minutes tonight vs. Indy.
Hindsight, I know. But why would Indy allow LeBron to get the ball on the inbounds pass? Surround him. He didn't even have to work for it.
Quick note to Jazz fans - Roy Hibbert entered the league at 22 years old, is now 26 - Favors is currently 21 and Kanter turned 21 yesterday

Key play of the night with 4:10 left in the 4th Q - LeBron hits the 3 off the Cole pass from the Hibbert block of Wade drive. Needed all 3
I love this game !
79.7% free throw shooter makes all three 50.6% of the time
I wonder if somebody came straight down and landed on Birdman's head whether they would be impaled on his spiked Mohawk.
Hangout in now open sorry invites were out.
A complete and total unrelenting commitment on the defensive end of the floor by both teams - why they are in the Western Confernce Finals

Spurs have scored 2 points in over 7:00 minutes
Lindsey brought up this interesting fact: "We were evaluating players older than Gordon." Hayward turned 23 years old in March.
GM Dennis Lindsey on Chicago combine: "As you can imagine, there were a few guards that are aware we don't have anybody under contract."
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey says draft has good athleticism, and "it’s our job to go find some guys who could help contribute to our club.”
Dennis Lindsey: "We had done all of our work up to this point with 14 in mind and if we moved up we're playing with the house's money."
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said the lottery's results "certainly gives us clarity."
Best players picked No. 14? Peja, Drexler, Majerle, Tim Hardaway. Best all-time 14er? Yinka Dare, I say.
Is there an extensive process one must go through in order to become a "draft expert" or do you just, you know, hang out a shingle?
Cleveland lottery kid has now stuck it to Utah, Minnesota, Orlando and Washington in the last three years.
How long did it take for the first Irving, Noel and LeBron James tweet to go out
The only thing the Cleveland Cavaliers can win is the draft lottery.
Cleveland wins the lottery. Orlando, with a 25 percent chance at No. 1 pick, will pick second.
From Jazz perspective - after #14 lottery went as well as you could hope no Western team got top 3 - Portland, Minnesota stayed in spots
Washington will be in the top 3 after Detroit ends up with the No. 8 pick.
Everything is in order through the first six picks.
The Utah Jazz will pick 14th. And that's that.
Utah did not defy its long-shot odds in the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery. Jazz will have picks Nos. 14, 21 and 46 in the June 27 draft.
Among lottery representatives, the kid from Cleveland looks like Donnie Nelson ... or vice versa.
Watching ESPN's coverage of the lottery wants me to cancel cable as soon as I get home.
I haven't been this excited about ping-pong balls since Russia’s Maxim Shmyrev beat Nigeria’s Sule Olaleyewon for the world championship.
I liked the lottery better when David Stern reached into a jar and pulled out the altered envelope.
For a team with a 98.2 percent chance of picking 14th, the lottery is a non-event. Now, imagine if the Jazz had sent Enes Kanter.
Jazz fans in Logan - about to jump on KVNU at 6:10pm.
Heading over to ESA to watch the lotto.
Michael Jordan announces Bobcats are now the Hornets. In a related development, Jordan announces Kemba Walker is now Isiah Thomas.
Since 1986, the Jazz have picked better than 14th in the draft only four times (D-Will, Hayward, Kanter, Burks).
Jazz have had 18 draft picks since 2005. At the end of last season, 11 were playing in the NBA.
Utah's Jason Washburn will participate in the massive NBA workout (44 players) in New Jersey on Wednesday
Shane Larkin Draft Breakdown Video is finally done. Being uploaded right now will post soon.
Wonder when Phil Jackson's book signing in Salt Lake City is scheduled? I know he's always liked it here to much.
Team with the huge regular season to post season offensive drop was the Knicks from #3 overall to #12 of playoffs teams.
In playoffs Clippers were 4th best offense and thunder were 7th and without Russ. Just challenging the narrative.
It is in vogue to kill Brooks and Del Negto for their lack of creativity offensively. Their teams were 2nd and 4th in NBA in offense.
