HoopsHype awards: The All-NBA Teams

- by

ALL-NBA 1st TEAM

Stephen Curry, Golden State: A devastating offensive force for the best team in the NBA and a joy to watch too. An All-NBA 1st Team pick for 89.8 percent of the HoopsHype readers that took part in our poll.

James Harden, Houston: Kept the Rockets afloat (and then some) while Dwight Howard was sidelined. The Rockets had no business finishing No. 2 in the Western Conference, but Harden made it happen.

LeBron James, Cleveland: Had a slow start of the season (for LeBron standards), but was the driving force behind Cleveland's strong second half of the year.

Anthony Davis, New Orleans: Carried an average NBA on his back and into the playoffs. Two-way player that led the league in PER and will remain an MVP candidate for many years to come (if he can stay healthy).

Marc Gasol, Memphis: The leader of the gritty Memphis Grizzlies, Gasol was selected as the top center in the game this season by 48.1 percent of HoopsHype readers.

ALL NBA 2nd TEAM

Chris Paul, LA Clippers: So good people take his excellence for granted. Was never mentioned as an MVP candidate even though he had one of the best seasons in his career.

Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City: Was coming off an injury, but you couldn't tell. Played with reckless effort and led the NBA in scoring. Came close to taking the Durant-less Thunder to the postseason. 

LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland: Averaged a career-high 23.4 ppg for a very good Portland team (till Wesley Matthews got injured). One of only three players to put together a 20-and-10 season in 2014-15.

Pau Gasol, Chicago: Bounced back this year and posted some of the best numbers of his career at age 34. His 11.8 rpg were a career high.

DeMarcus Cousins, Sacramento: Was once again pretty much the lone bright spot in a disfunctional Kings franchise. The team is more of a headache for Cousins now than the other way around.

ALL-NBA 3rd TEAM

Kyrie Irving, Cleveland: Crafty point guard with almost unparalleled ballhandling and shot-making skills. The best is yet to come.

Klay Thompson, Golden State: Lights-out shooter with the ability to play lock-down defense too. His torrid shooting streaks were among the highlights of the 2014-15 season.

Kawhi Leonard, San Antonio: Low-key guy whose play speaks volumes. Outstanding defender that's growing more and more assertive on the offensive end.

Tim Duncan, San Antonio: Just another year at the office for TD. Keeps making a great impact in 30 minutes per game for the eternal San Antonio Spurs.

DeAndre Jordan, LA Clippers: Still doesn't have an offensive game aside from dunks, but his rebounding and shot-blocking are fantastic assets for the Clips. Likely to land a max deal this summer.
