After an All-NBA absence for the Beard last season, James Harden was named to the All-NBA First Team with all 100 votes, according to Howard Beck.

Russell Westbrook joins him in the First Team backcourt with 99 First Team votes. LeBron James also achieved the same feat, and Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis received 96 and 45 first-team votes respectively.
It’s exciting to see The Beard get the credit he deserves. His 29.1 PPG ranked second in the league and his 11.2 APG was a career-high.
Congrats to the Beard!
