The awards continue to pile on for LeBron James as the 33 year old has been named to his 12th All-NBA first team list. The honor puts the King past Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant for most first team selections of all time. The award marks the 14th time he has been on an All-NBA team.

The full list had Kevin Love missing out on the third team selection, though. 

The All-NBA teams were chosen by a global panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.

The media voted for All-NBA first, second and third teams by position with points awarded on a 5-3-1 basis.
