It is the fifth straight appearance on the First Team for LeBron James. Tony Allen, Serge Ibaka and Chris Paul make their second straight appearances. (The third time overall for Paul). Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah, who ended up tied for the Center position, are both making their first appearance on the First Team.
