The NBA unveiled its All-NBA selections Tuesday for the 2021-22 season.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was the lone unanimous selection. MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets collected all but one first-team vote, while Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry received 98 of a possible 100 first-team votes.

First-team votes were worth five points, second-team votes were worth three, and third-team votes were worth one.

Tatum finished with 69 total points, trailing third-team selection Paul George by just 20.
