All-NBA Snubs

Lakers center Anthony Davis earned the most total points (65) of any player who did not end up on an All-NBA team. (James, with 81, had the fewest total points of anyone on the All-NBA teams.)

The Utah Jazz’s Lauri Markkanen, who was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player, was the top vote-getter among forwards who did not make the list (49 total points). Behind him was Kevin Durant, a 10-time All-NBA selection who had another brilliant season but played in just 47 games due to injury in a season split between the Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns.

For guards, the distinction of most total points without being named All-NBA belonged to the Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant. He had 44 total points. Jrue Holiday of the Milwaukee Bucks finished behind Morant with 39 total points, but has the distinction of being the only player not on one of the three teams to earn a first-place vote.
