Anthony Davis not on All-NBA team, misses out on $24 million bonus
The members of the three All-NBA teams were announced Thursday, with one costly omission.
Pelicans forward Anthony Davis, who would have earned a $24 million bonus if he was named to an All-NBA team, did not receive enough votes for inclusion.
Davis was a First-Team All-NBA selection in 2014–15 but was limited to just 61 games this season due to shoulder and knee injuries. He averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game, nearly identical to his numbers last season.
Davis finished with 76 points in the voting, including one First-Team vote. LaMarcus Aldridge, the forward with the lowest vote total on the Third Team, had 103 points.
Stephen Curry was named First-Team All-NBA for the second time in his career, while LeBron James earned the honor for the 10th time and ninth year consecutively. Here are the full results of the voting.
Davis’s injuries, which both required surgery, will keep him out of this summer’s Olympics.
