Manu named to 2010-11 All-NBA Third Team


For the second time in his career, Manu Ginobili was selected to the All-NBA third team garnering a total of 106 points. He was also chosen in All-NBA third team in 2008.

Ginobili was named to the All-NBA 3rd team for the second time in his career

Scoring wise, Ginobili had one of his better seasons.

In 80 games, he averaged 17.4 points,  4.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds while shooting 43.3 percent from the field, including 34.9 percent from beyond the arc.

His 17.4 ppg was the highest since the 2007-08 season and the 4.9 apg tied his career high.

Tim Duncan’s streak of being selected to the NBA’s all-star teams was snapped Wednesday when the league announced the All-NBA selections. He finished the regular season with career-lows in scoring, rebounding and minutes played.

Prior to this year, Duncan made it to the All-NBA squad for 13 consecutive seasons. He was chosen on the All-NBA first team nine times, the second-team three times and was a third-team selection last year.

Among active players, Duncan is tied with Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant for most First Team selections. He received a total of 43 points this season.

Tony Parker also got some votes and finished with 27 points. Parker was named to the All-NBA third team in 2009.

He and Duncan were the only other Spurs to receive votes for this year’s All-NBA selections.

  2. You’re the man, Manu! It’s good you get the nod. But sad to see Duncan being left out even on the third team.
