Before I reveal my First Team selections, here's a look at the two forwards, two guards and a center who had a shot at being All-NBA, but just missed it.
LaMarcus Aldridge, Blazers: Aldridge is leading all 4s in points this season and is 17th in the league in rebounds per game. However, his PER and win-share numbers are down from his lone All-NBA Third Team selection in 2011.
David Lee, Warriors: Lee is leading all power forwards in rebounds and rebounds per game and is also in the top 15 in points per game.
Marc Gasol, Grizzlies: Gasol is the one man most responsible for the Grizzlies being where they are. He is leading all centers in total win shares. Gasol is also in the top 10 in both blocks and defensive rating.
Dwyane Wade, Heat: Some people would have Wade over Curry, but I wouldn’t. Curry has more points, more assists and more win shares. Though Wade is 11th in total points on the season, he’s only seventh among guards. He’s ninth among guards in win shares despite playing on the winningest team in the East.
Jrue Holiday, Sixers: Holiday is third in the league in total assists behind Chris Paul and Greivis Vasquez and also among the league leaders in steals. Holiday is averaging a career-high 18 points a game, good enough for 17th in the league.
