Carter’s 2009-10 All-NBA Teams: Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant Highlight First Team



G Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat)

Only Kevin Durant and LeBron James scored more points than D-Wade this season. That’s pretty much the only reason why I have him on the first team. He is the NBA’s best offensive guard.

G Kobe Bryant (Los Angeles Lakers)

He’s not the same Kobe that he was four years ago, but this guy can still dominate in the regular season and still put up 30 points in a playoff game like it’s nothing (as we saw the other night).


F Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder)

He would’ve received my vote for MVP. Not putting him at All-NBA First Team would be stupid.


F LeBron James (Cleveland Cavaliers)

The best player in the Eastern Conference deserves to be on the first team for obvious reasons.

C David Lee (New York Knicks)

Any guy who scores over 1,600 points in a season and averages 11.7 rebounds per game should be a first-teamer.




G Stephen Jackson (Charlotte Bobcats)

He quietly became one of the better players in the game this year. Only nine other players scored more points than Jackson.


G Monta Ellis (Golden State Warriors)

He’s starting to become the face of the Warriors franchise. He missed 18 games but still managed to score over 1,600 points this season.


F Dirk Nowitzki (Dallas Mavericks)

The greatest shooting big man since Bob McAdoo. He continues to get the job done year after year. If he had better pieces around him, he would have at least one championship by now.


F Carmelo Anthony (Denver Nuggets)

"Melo" just finished the third-greatest season of his career. Over 1,900 points for the third time. ...
