Former back-to-back NBA MVP and Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and current back-to-back MVP and Nuggets center Nikola Jokic were both among the highest point-getters as the league revealed its All-NBA teams on Tuesday.
The same holds true for Mavericks star Luka Doncic, who tied Jokic with 476 points. Antetokounmpo led everyone with 500 points, making his sixth All-NBA team overall.
The voting was conducted by a panel of 100 media members. Five points were awarded to players for a First Team Vote, three points for a Second Team vote, and one for a Third Team vote. In other words, Antetokounmpo received a perfect score.
