Blue Man Hoop: Three Warriors make All-NBA Teams

Obviously I feel like I should be a first team player, but it is what it is.

To be fair, DeRozan did have a stellar season with Toronto, carrying the Raptors through the second round postseason play with a career-high 27.3 points per game. Green probably will be the Defensive Player of the Year. "I know it's obviously a tough vote every year to figure out who goes where, but that's a guy that had an incredible season". You can bet the only hardware he cares about is that Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green named to 2016-17 All-NBA team.

Draymond Green #23 of the Golden State Warriors reacts with Andre Iguodala #9 after hitting a three-point basket against the Utah Jazz during Game Two of the NBA Western Conference Semi-Finals at ORACLE Arena on May 4, 2017 in Oakland, California.

After back-to-back MVP campaigns, there was no room for Curry to make it onto First Team, despite really turning it on down the stretch.

DeRozan's toaster wasn't quite as successful - the Raptors won five of their last six regular season games and one playoff series after the signing, but they were swept away by Lebron James's Cleveland Cavaliers soon after.

Golden State guard Klay Thompson was well back in the backcourt voting, a snub that brought the most spark from his Warriors teammates. He had 10 points, 7 assists, 7.9 rebounds 2 steals, and 1.4 blocks.

The All-NBA Teams were chosen by a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters in the United States and Canada.

Said Curry: "He definitely deserved to be on one of those teams". Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes. Also, the way Klay can defend, I don't really understand it.
