The three finalists for this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player award — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George — led the balloting for this year’s All-NBA teams, which were announced by the league Thursday afternoon. Antetokounmpo and George were named to the two forward spots on the first team, while Harden was joined by Stephen Curry as the first team guards. Rounding out the first team was Nikola Jokic. Antetokounmpo and Harden were unanimous first-team selections. By making a second consecutive All-NBA team, Antetokounmpo put himself in line to be handed the largest contract in NBA history by the Bucks next summer: a five-year deal worth $247.3 million, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. When he can receive it next July, Antetokounmpo will be one year away from free agency.
