James Harden has capped off a stellar season for the Houston Rockets by being unanimously voted to the 2016-17 All-NBA First Team.

Harden was the only player named to the team on all 100 ballots. He has now earned First Team honors three times over the last four seasons.

LeBron James and Russell Westbrook both received 99 First Team votes. Joining those three on the First Team is Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis.
