Karl Anthony Towns of the Timberwolves did not make any of the three All-NBA teams, announced Thursday, despite averaging 25.1 points and 12.3 rebounds per game.
Towns had the highest vote total of players who were not All-NBA, including two first place votes.
LeBron James of Cleveland was named All-NBA first team for a record-tying 11th time, and James Harden of the Rockets was a unanimous choice. Also on the first team were Russell Westbook of Oklahoma City, Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio and New Orleans center Anthony Davis.
The All-NBA second team included Milwaukee forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Utah center Rudy Gobert, Boston guard Isaiah Thomas and Golden State’s Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant.
The third team is Jimmy Butler of Chicago, Draymond Green of the Warriors, DeMar DeRozan of Toronto, John Wall of Washington and DeAndre Jordan of the Clippers.
Jordan got the final spot with 54 points, four more than Towns.
The All-NBA teams were chosen by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.
