Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler Named to the All-NBA Team!

Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler were both named to the NBA’s All-NBA Third Team.

Here is a list of all the members of the All-NBA Team.

This is Melo’s fifth appearance on the All-NBA team (four third teams and one second team) and Chandler’s first (pretty darn good return on the first year of a contract – Defensive Player of the Year, All-Defense and All-NBA!)

Congratulations to Melo and Chandler!

    Different voters. The media votes for DPOY while coaches vote for All-Defense and coaches all love Howard (except for his own coach, but he couldn’t vote for him anyways) while the media realizes he dropped off a bit this year as he sulked.

    In other news, the entire Sixers team will have their knees drained before game 7 on Saturday (I guess rumors of Wade’s demise were greatly exaggerated)

    With no one on the all NBA team…Indiana never stood a chance. The All NBA predictor – based on number of members and tier of selection – says Boston beats Philly (no all NBA player), the heat beat the celtics, OKC beats the Spurs, and OKC beat the Heat. Lol

    We need Carmelo and Amare on 2nd team, and Chandler on third to be elite nxt year.

    of course this would have had Miami over the Lakers or OKC last year too, each of those three had a guy on the first team and a guy on the second team (although Gasol looked awful in the playoffs).

    I mean, I get how it happened. I guess I was again pointing out how arbitrarily idiotic the result was.

    Yeah, it really was stupid. I don’t know how anyone looked at Dwight Howard this particular season and thought he was a better defensive player than Chandler. Howard appeared to be clearly slacking all season, for whatever reason (pissed at his coach, distracted by his situation, whatever). You could make a case for Ibaka being a better defender than Chandler, but I don’t think Howard, not this particular season (every other season, sure).

    Just goes to show that even the people who are supposed to be as intimately knowledgeable of the game as anyone out there can still be prisoners of a narrative.
