Nikola Jokic has been included in the 2020-21 All-NBA first team

League MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets and unanimous pick Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks made the All-NBA first team, he announced Tuesday.

They were joined in the first team by Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry, Dallas Mavericks forward Luka Doncic, and Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard.

Despite being a finalist for the MVP award, Philadelphia 76ers Joel Embiid was only a second team All-NBA pick due to position limitations – each team only had one center and Jokic beat Embiid in votes .

Embiid was joined on the second team by Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, Phoenix Suns guard Chris Paul, Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James and New York Knicks forward Julius Randle.

The five who made up the third team were guards Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn) and Bradley Beal (Washington), forwards Jimmy Butler (Miami) and Paul George (Los Angeles Clippers) and center Rudy Gobert (Utah).

He scored the first All-NBA picks in his career for Randle and Beal. James earned his 17th All-NBA pick and Paul earned his 10th.

The next two guards to receive votes were Russell Westbrook of the Wizards and James Harden of the Nets, falling just behind their respective teammates, Beal and Irving. Forwards who narrowly missed the cut included Jayson of the Celtics

Tatum, Zion Williamson of the Pelicans and Kevin Durant of the Nets.

Harden and Tatum each obtained two votes from the first team despite not accumulating enough total votes to be included in any of the three teams.

Jokic obtained 99 votes for the first team and one vote for the second team for not being able to join Antetokounmpo as a unanimous choice. Curry garnered 98 first-team votes and two second-team votes, earning him the seventh All-NBA pick of his career.

Jokic became the first second-round pick in league history to be named MVP. Jokic started all 72 games for the Nuggets and averaged 26.4 points, 10.8 rebounds and 8.3 assists per game, all setting or equaling personal records.

The Serbian shot 56.6 percent from the floor, including 38.8 percent from 3-point range, and added 1.3 steals and 0.7 blocks per game.

Antetokounmpo, the league MVP in 2019 and 2020, averaged 28.1 points, 11.0 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 steals per game in 61 games for Milwaukee.
