LeBron James has done it again, and when it comes the All-NBA first team, that's really no surprise.

You guessed it, the Los Angeles Lakers forward was again a member of the league's selections of its best five players, joining Houston Rockets guard James Harden, Dallas Mavericks guard Luka Doncic, Lakers forward Anthony Davis and Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, the reigning NBA MVP and this season's Defensive Player of the Year.

James, Harden and Antetokounmpo are the three finalists for the MVP award this year.
