The 2019 All-NBA teams were created with the specific intention of creating explosive arguments.

First team stalwarts like Kevin Durant and LeBron James missed out on that honor in 2019. Steph Curry and James Harden led the way this year, with Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George and Nikola Jokic rounding out the team.

It's always nice to see the national media give small-market guys like Jokic and George their due.

Durant landed on the second team alongside Kawhi Leonard, Joel Embiid, Damian Lillard and Kyrie Irving. Something tells me that this team would look a little different if they were voted on after the playoffs. LeBron ended up on the third team next to Russell Westbrook, Blake Griffin, Rudy Gobert and Kemba Walker. This tells you that someone is not paying attention.

Some of the biggest snubs this year included Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns and Washington's Bradley Beal.

Every single year, these teams make NBA fans all over the country tear their hair out. While all the usual suspects turned up in this team, there are too many peculiar picks.
