Cleveland Cavaliers’ forward LeBron James and Houston Rockets guard James Harden have been unanimously voted All-NBA First Team, receiving 100 first team votes, the league has announced on Thursday.

This All-NBA First Team selection for James is his 12th in 15 seasons he spent in NBA, meaning that he has passed Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone for most All-NBA first team selections. The 2017-18 regular season was the first career one in which LeBron James played in all 82 games. The 33-year-old averaged 27.5 points and career-highs of 9.1 assists and 8.6 rebounds per game.

James Harden, on the other hand, was unanimously voted All-NBA First Team for the second consecutive season. He averaged 30.4 points, 8.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game and will likely be selected NBA MVP for the 2017-18 season.

James and Harden are joined on the All-NBA First Team by Golden State Warriors’ forward Kevin Durant, New Orleans Pelicans’ forward/center Anthony Davis and Portland Trail Blazers’ guard Damian Lillard. With this selection, Davis is eligible for supermax five-year, $230 million extension according to ESPN, which would be the largest contract in the NBA. He was previously selected to the NBA All-Defensive First Team.

The All-NBA Second Team has Oklahoma City Thunder’s guard Russell Westbrook, Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Toronto Raptors’ guard DeMar DeRozan, San Antonio Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge and Philadelphia 76ers’ center Joel Embiid.

Warriors’ guard Steph Curry, Indiana Pacers’ guard Victor Oladipo, Thunder’s forward Paul George and Minnesota Timberwolves forward Jimmy Butler and center Karl-Anthony Towns were selected to the All-NBA Third Team.
