James extends his All-NBA appearance record, while Doncic, Gilgeous-Alexander set for supermax deals

In the latest All-NBA team announcement, LeBron James has achieved a remarkable feat by becoming both the youngest and the oldest player to make the team. Meanwhile, Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander of the Oklahoma City Thunder are on track to secure lucrative supermax contracts, potentially earning around $1 million per game in the future.

The All-NBA team for this season, disclosed by the league on Wednesday night, featured unanimous first-team selections Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets and Gilgeous-Alexander. They were joined by Doncic, Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks, and Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics.

The second team comprised Jalen Brunson of the New York Knicks, Anthony Edwards of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Kevin Durant of the Phoenix Suns, Kawhi Leonard of the Los Angeles Clippers, and Anthony Davis, James’ teammate on the Los Angeles Lakers.
The third team consisted of a lineup featuring James, Stephen Curry from Golden State, Domantas Sabonis from Sacramento, Tyrese Haliburton from Indiana, and Devin Booker from Phoenix.

Starting this season, the NBA has implemented a new rule for All-NBA voting, removing the traditional position requirements. Previously, each team consisted of two guards, two forwards, and one center. This formula had been in place since the 1950s. Additionally, players had to meet a minimum game requirement to be eligible for consideration in the awards. The voting panel, consisting of 99 broadcasters and writers, carefully considered these factors when making their selections.
