The NBA playoffs are in full swing and pretty soon it will be time for the end of season awards to be announced. One of the big honors every year is being named to an All-NBA team, First, Second, or Third. The All-NBA teams are presented to those players that excelled at their respective position during the course of the season. Some analysts are already making their choices known so here are my picks. First off, here are my predictions for the All-NBA Third Team.
All-NBA Third Team
PG - Stephen Curry: GSW
A great season for the former MVP, and his impact could be especially felt in his absence this season but nagging injuries led to 30+ missed games which is what kept him off All-NBA First team.
SG - Victor Oladipo : IND
The hands-down Most Improved Player, Dipo proved a lot of doubters wrong by leading Indiana to the playoffs as a top 5 team no less. Blossomed into a great two-way player this season.
SF - Jimmy Butler : MIN
Really big season for Jimmy Buckets as his impact on the court played a HUGE role on getting Minnesota to the playoffs for the first time since 2004.
PF - Al Horford : BOS
Al solidified himself as the defensive anchor and leader alongside Kyrie for this season's young and injury riddled team.
C - Karl-Anthony Towns - MIN
A nice breakout season for Kat, led the NBA in double doubles showing just how dominant this young big can be. Has a lot of room for growth and his time is coming but there still were a few bigs ahead of him this season.
My picks for All-NBA Second Team on Wednesday.
