Stephen Curry has been selected for the All-NBA First Team and Kevin Durant has been selected to the All-NBA Second Team for the 2018-19 season, the league announced Thursday. This is Curry’s sixth All-NBA selection in 10 seasons, and third time being named to the All-NBA First Team. Durant has now been selected nine times, seven of which to the first team.

Perhaps as notable is the fact that Klay Thompson was not named to any of the three teams, meaning that he is not eligible for a supermax deal this summer, that could’ve been worth upwards of $220 million. If Klay does indeed decide to stay in Golden State, the most they could pay him would be a little less than $190 million.
Curry, 31, averaged 27.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game, while shooting 47.2 percent overall and 43.7 percent from 3-point range. Durant, 30, averaged 26 points, 6.4 rebounds and a career-high 5.9 assists per game while shooting 52.1 percent from the field and 35.3 percent from downtown.
