Surprise, surprise, Stephen Curry has made another All-NBA team.

The NBA announced all three All-NBA teams on Tuesday afternoon, with Curry among the headliners on the first team, along with Nikola Jokic, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic and Kawhi Leonard.

Joel Embiid, who finished second, above Curry (third) in the MVP voting, was selected to the All-NBA second team.

The honor is no surprise for Curry, who played arguably the best basketball of his career. He averaged a nonsensical 32 points on 48.2 percent shooting, 5.3 made threes a game on 42.1 percent shooting, along with 5.5 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

Head coach Steve Kerr said time and time and time again that he had never seen Curry play at a higher level, and that was in describing a back-to-back MVP with three championship rings. It’s now the seventh time Curry has made an All-NBA team and the fourth time he’s made an All-NBA first team. Prior to last season, he was on a run of six-straight All-NBA nods.
