The rest of the first team included guards Marcus Smart and Eric Bledsoe. George received 96 first-team votes from participating media members, second-most behind Gobert. He also received 19 second team votes.
Congrats to Marcus Smart for being named to the NBA's All-Defensive 1st team for the first time!
New Orleans' Jrue Holiday, Golden State's Klay Thompson, Philadelphia's Joel Embiid, Golden State's Draymond Green and Toronto's Kawhi Leonard were honored on the second team. He's brought it up multiple times throughout the season, including saying this before facing the Rockets in March. The NBA All-Defensive Teams were selected by a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters. "We thought ever since he got here that he's one of the best defenders in the league", he said.
Smart, a former All-American at Oklahoma State, made the All-Defensive team for the first time in his career.

NFL Draft will be in Kansas City
Cities and teams put out requests to host the NFL Draft, much like they do for the Super Bowl, and get selected by a committee. The Browns will be hosting a tailgate party to celebrate getting the Draft on Thursday at 3 p.m.in Public Square.
Thompson earned his first career All-Defensive Team selection and is the 10th different player in franchise history to earn All-Defensive honors since the National Basketball Association began the award in 1968-69. Antetokounmpo averaged 1.5 blocks per game - the second-highest mark of his career - while Bledsoe added 1.5 steals per contest.
The Boston Celtics guard has made a nice career for himself so far by being one of the most reliable backcourt defenders in the National Basketball Association, but he previously only had gotten a second team nod.
Although Thompson is surely pleased to make the All-Defensive Second Team, Green doesn't figure to be so happy.
