Lebron also played a majority of his time at PG. Would you prefer if they had bumped Harden to the second team and move Kawhi to the first team? As another poster mentioned, it seems they have quasi-moved on from picking the best player at a certain position... or at a minimum voting based on best at a given position has been inconsistently done.
Guys were able to put guys as they saw fit (some guys had multi position eligibility)
They wanted (the NBA) to get the best 15 players on here, and that meant that if the majority had our Lebron and Kawhi on their first team they would’ve been, however they didn’t.
This has nothing to with positional requirements and it simply was more people voted for AD over Jokic
Middleton, who can play SG if necessary, get more points (82) than both third-team guards, but didn't reach all-NBA third team because he is nominated as forward.
The NBA cleared this up weeks ago.
LeBron is eligible at forward and guard, Davis is eligible at forward and center, Middleton is eligible at forward and guard, Butler as well.
There was no vote splitting between positions.
Most votes (combined at all eligible positions) got the spots.
Don't believe the hype...
