First Team: Forward- LeBron James Forward- Kevin Durant Center- Dwight Howard Guard- Kobe Bryant Guard- Dwayne Wade
Second Team: Forward- Carmelo Anthony Forward- Dirk Nowitzki Center- Amare Stoudemire Guard- Steve Nash Guard- Deron Williams
Third Team: Forward- Tim Duncan Forward- Pau Gasol Center- Andrew Bogut Guard- Joe Johnson Guard- Brandon Roy
For the most part, I agree with the selections. I would however would have replace Pau Gasol with Chris Bosh but I think it is partially due to Pau being on a recognizable, winning team (though Gasol himself did have a good year also). I may have had Derrick Rose edging out Roy for the guard position on the third team, but again, these teams are fairly balanced and agreeable. There are so much talent and only a few get selected on the All-NBA team.
Eddie Griffin, most recently of the Timberwolves, died (sports.espn.go.com) when his SUV hit a train. He was he only passenger in the vehicle. Griffin was a free agent, having been released by Minnesota in March.
