John Wall snubbed in All-NBA Team voting

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards' All-Star point guard was close, but did not get enough points to make one of the three All-NBA teams.

John Wall had a breakout 2013-14 season. He made his first All-Star Game appearance, led the league in total assists, and got the Washington Wizards to the second round of the NBA Playoffs. You would think that this would be good enough to get him into one of the All-NBA Teams. Unfortunately, it was not enough.

Wall received 70 points in All-NBA Team voting, seventh highest among guards. He just missed making the Third Team. So who were the guards that did make the All-NBA team? Here is the list below, along with how many points they received:

Player Team Points All-NBA Team
Chris Paul Clippers 540 First All-NBA Team
James Harden Rockets 502 First All-NBA Team
Stephen Curry Warriors 489 Second All-NBA Team
Tony Parker Spurs 210 Second All-NBA Team
Goran Dragic Suns 115 Third All-NBA Team
Damian Lillard Trail Blazers 115 Third All-NBA Team

Of the six guards who were selected to an All-NBA team, all of them except for Goran Dragic made the All-Star team. And while Dragic was not an All-Star and played for a non-playoff team, the Suns did have a better regular season than the Wizards in a tough Western Conference. Dragic also made over 50% of his shots and led Phoenix in scoring, so he did make a strong case for making the All-NBA Team.

This still stings nevertheless. Though the Wizards have made considerable progress during the 2013-14 season, this still hasn't translated into players being named to the All-Defensive and/or All-NBA teams. Earlier this week, Trevor Ariza was snubbed from making the All-Defensive team. Now, Wall has been snubbed from making the All-NBA Team.
