    Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James grabs a rebound as he warms up before Game 5 of the team’s NBA basketball Eastern Conference finals against the Boston Celtics on May 23 in Boston.

NEW YORK >> LeBron James was unanimously selected to the All-NBA first team for a record 12th time, while Houston’s James Harden also appeared on all 100 first-team ballots.

They were joined today on the first team by New Orleans’ Anthony Davis, Golden State’s Kevin Durant and Portland’s Damian Lillard.

James passed Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone with the 12th first-team selection of his 15-year career. He also was a second-team selection twice.

The second team was forwards Giannis Antetokounmpo of Milwaukee and LaMarcus Aldridge of San Antonio, Philadelphia center Joel Embiid, and guards Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto.

Injury absences sent Golden State’s Stephen Curry tumbling to the third team, where he was joined in the backcourt by Indiana’s Victor Oladipo. Minnesota teammates Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler, and Oklahoma City’s Paul George rounded out the third team.

Voting was done by a panel of sports writers and broadcasters.
