The All Time First Team All-NBA

Updated on February 3, 2018

Point Gaurd: Magic Johnson


magic Johnson is known as the greatest point guard to ever play the game, and for good reason. He is a 5 time NBA Champion, 3 time MVP and three time NBA Finals MVP, a 10 time All-NBA selection, and in debate for the greatest passer of all time although I still think it’s John Stockton. Johnson has the record for career assists per game and is number five on the career assists record, despite only playing in 13 seasons and 906 games played and started in only 763 of them. He could rebound, pass, and score as well as play defense extremely well. He averaged: 19.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 11.2 assists, 0.4 blocks, and 1.9 steals a game. While he led the league in assists 4 times, keep in mind he played with John Stockton, and steals twice. He also shot 52 percent from the field. He took, on average, 13.2 shots a game. But his legend spans into the playoffs as well. He averaged: 19.2 points, 12.3 assists, 7.7 rebounds, and 1.9 steals a game. While, as a point guard, he averaged 10+ rebounds a game in the playoffs three times.

Honorabke Mentions: Allen Iverson, John Stockton, and Oscar Robertson.

Shooting Guard: Michael Jordan


The GOAT. I could leave it that but I’ll just say this. He’s a 10 time scoring champion, 4 all time in career points scored and he only played 1098 games. He has the record for points per game in the regular season with 30.12 and playoffs with 33.45. To put that playoffs points per game into perspective second place is Allen Iverson who didn’t even break 30. He got cheated out of atleast 3 MVPs and if he played those 5 years that he retired for he would’ve EARNED at least 3 more rings and MVPs. Second place for point guard must be Kobe, and he didn’t even averaged 27 points per game. Also, if you get rid of Kobe’s first two years he only averaged 26.7, so my point still stands. Michael Jordan is the greatest player of all time, better than LeBron, Kobe, Magic, better than everyone. No. Debate. Just a bit more, Jordan is the oldest player to score 50 in a game, he dropped 51 points when he was 38. He also is the ONLY player to have dropped 40 points when he was 40 years old. There ya go.

Honorable Mentions: Dwayne Wade and Kobe Bryant

Small Forward: LeBron James


Although he is not better than Jordan he is still the youngest player to reach 30000 points scored, but he did it in more games than Jordan played. Ok I’ll stop Cavs fans.

James averged: 27.1 points, 7.3 rebounds, 7.1 assists, and 1.6 steals a game.

He is a one time scoring champion, 4 time MVP, 3 time NBA champion, and 3 time Finals MVP. He carried the Cavs back from 3-1, is one of the most all-around players of all time, and is in my opinion the second greatest player of all time. He’s a 13 time All-NBA selection, 13 time all-star, 6 time all defensive team, and a rookie of the year. He is 7th on the career points scored and 12th in career assists. He had a historic finals series in 2016-2017, when he averaged 35 points, 5 assists, and 10 rebounds a game. He has the second highest career PER with 27.62. As well as 5th in career win shares with 213. Keep in mind once again that he has played over 100 more games than Jordan and is still lower than him in both points scored and career win shares. Jordan is the Goat. :)

Honorable Mentions: Larry Bird

Power Forward: Tim Duncan


Tim Duncan is an all around player that could play both sides of the ball. With career averagea of: 19. points, 10.8 rebounds, 3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 2.2 blocks a game. Duncan dominates almost everyone he played. He was a 15 time all star, 15 time All-NBA, 5 time NBA champion, 2 time MVP, 15 time all defensive, and a 3 time Finals MVP. Although he only averaged 20+ points per game in a season 9 times he still was a threat to score whenever he was on the court. He shined in the playoffs though, he averaged: 20.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 2.3 blocks, and 0.7 steals. Not a big difference right. Except for when he averaged 4.3 blocks per game and 3.7 blocks per game in consecutive years. From the ages of 21-33 his playoff averages are: 23 points, 13.2 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, 3.5 assists, and 0.7 steals. Obviously in his prime Tim duncan dominated even more than he usually did. I can’t think of anyone more diserving of this spot.

Honorable Mentions: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Garnett, and Karl Malone.

Center: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


Kareem is a 19 time All-Star, 6 time MVP, 2 time Finals MVP, 15 time All-NBA, 11 time All-Defensive, a two time scoring champion, and a 6 time NBA champion.

He has the record for career points scored with 38,387 and the record for career MVPs.

He has career averages of: 24.6 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 2.6 blocks, and 0.9 steals. Of course he did slow down a bit towards the end, but his prime stats will blow you away. With prime stats of: 27.8 points, 13.7 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 3.3 blocks per game. He led the league in blocks 4 times, rebounds once, and field goal percentage once. His accolades put him at number three on my list for greatest of all time. He averaged 3+ Blocks 7 times in his career, probably more since they didn’t count defensive stats during his first 4 years in the NBA. All around, he’s the greatest center of all time.

Honparable Mentions: Shaquille O’neal, Bill Russell, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Wilt Chamberlain
