#MickstapeAwards Final Reactions!

Week 2 of polling finished up on Friday. Thanks to everyone that voted and shared. On Friday, we decided:

  • Second frontcourt spot for Third Team All-NBA
  • Wildcard spot for Third Team All-NBA. This can be a frontcourt or backcourt player.

We have all three of our All-NBA Teams filled!

First Team All-NBA 

BC- Luka Doncic, Dallas Mavericks

BC- James Harden, Houston Rockets

FC- Giannis Antetekounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks

FC- Lebron James, Los Angeles Lakers

WC- Anthony Davis, Los Angeles Lakers

Thoughts: No surprises here. I wondered if Kawhi may get the wildcard spot over AD, but the polls showed otherwise.

Second Team All-NBA

BC- Damian Lillard, Portland Trailblazers

BC- Russell Westbrook, Houston Rockets

FC- Kawhi Leonard, Los Angeles Clippers

FC- Pascal Siakam, Toronto Raptors

WC- Nikola Jokic, Denver Nuggets

Thoughts: Two chances to put anyone at the wildcard spot, and two times the people put a center here lol. I agree with it in both instances, but wonder if we're programmed to add a "big" man or if AD/Jokic were just the two best choices. I'm leaning towards the latter.

Third Team All-NBA

BC- Chris Paul, Oklahoma City Thunder

BC- Bradley Beal, Washington Wizards

FC- Jayson Tatum, Boston Celtics

FC- Khris Middleton, Milwaukee Bucks

WC- Trae Young, Atlanta Hawks

Thoughts: I admit I am surprised to see Bradley Beal here. But I like the consistency of the people to also vote in Trae. If you're averaging 30 PPG in the NBA, you should probably be recognized as a top-15 player. Tough but fair.
