The three All-NBA teams were announced Wednesday, with Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum joining an assortment of international stars on the first squad.

All-NBA first team

Player Team Career selections
Giannis Antetokounmpo MIL 8
Luka Doncic DAL 5
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander OKC 2
Nikola Jokic DEN 6
Jayson Tatum BOS 4

Two of those non-Americans, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Nikola Jokic, were each unanimous selections. Doncic was nearly a unanimous first-team pick but received one second-place vote. Though he fell just short of unanimity, Doncic can take solace in the fact that in 2025-26 he will be eligible to sign the largest contract in NBA history: a five-year extension worth approximately $346 million, according to ESPN's Bobby Marks. Gilgeous-Alexander will also be in line for a super-max extension in 2025: a $294-million, four-year deal that would pay him north of $80 million in 2030-31, per Marks.

All-NBA second team

Player Team Career selections
Jalen Brunson NYK 1
Anthony Davis LAL 5
Kevin Durant PHX 11
Anthony Edwards MIN 1
Kawhi Leonard LAC 6

New York Knicks guard Jalen Brunson earned his maiden selection with a spot on the second team, as did rising Minnesota Timberwolves star Anthony Edwards. As a result, the Timberwolves high-flyer will earn approximately $40 million more over the length of the five-year max extension he signed in 2023, which will kick in next season. Brunson doesn't qualify for the raise as he signed as a free agent last summer.

All-NBA third team

Player Team Career selections
Devin Booker PHX 2
Stephen Curry GSW 10
Tyrese Haliburton IND 1
LeBron James LAL 20
Domantas Sabonis SAC 2

Tyrese Haliburton also made his first All-NBA appearance, landing third-team recognition and boosting his salary next season in the first year of his five-year extension from 25% to 30% of the salary cap. LeBron James' spot on the third team nets the Lakers star his 20th All-NBA selection, improving his hold on the all-time record; no other active player has more than 11 (Kevin Durant, Chris Paul).

Like the NBA's All-Defensive teams that were released Tuesday, this was the first year of entirely positionless All-NBA voting. Previously, voters were required to name two guards, two forwards, and a center on their ballots. However, players still had to have played in at least 65 regular-season games this year to be eligible.
