The NBA announced its 2012-13 All-NBA teams on Thursday with LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Kevin Durant and Tim Duncan headlining the All-NBA First Team. Kobe Bryant's 11th selection to the All-NBA team ties him with Karl Malone for the most in NBA history.

The All-NBA Second Team consists of Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony, Marc Gasol and Tony Parker. David Lee, Paul George, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade and James Harden round out the All-NBA Third Team.

The All-NBA first team remains unchanged outside of Tim Duncan replacing Dwight Howard for First-Team honors.  First-time honorees include Marc Gasol, David Lee, Paul George and James Harden.
