All-NBA Teams Announced-Nuggets Diss'd

(Boulder-CO) The All-NBA teams were released today and the Nuggets were disrespected once again by the national media. I would have thought that with the league's third and fourth highest scorers, and the top overall shot blocker and second leading rebounder at least one Nugget would have made the grade. The All-NBA Teams were chosen by a panel of 127 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. The media voted for All-NBA First, Second and Third Teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis.
Here are the teams with their position selected for, team, and votes received:
2007-08 ALL-NBA FIRST TEAM
Forward Kevin Garnett, Boston (118) 612
Forward LeBron James, Cleveland (117) 610
Center Dwight Howard, Orlando (86) 546
Guard Kobe Bryant, L.A. Lakers (127) 635
Guard Chris Paul, New Orleans (124) 629

Yao Ming makes 3rd team? He played like what, not even half the year. Atleast as Nugget fans we're used to the BS

We have to face it. The guys will never get any kind of respect or recognition without the TEAM as whole have more SUCCESS.
