2021-22 All-NBA Teams: Praising this season's 15 best players

2021-22 All-NBA Teams: Praising this season's 15 best players

The 2021-22 NBA regular season has concluded, which means any data for regular-season awards is now finalized. As such, Nekias Duncan, Mark Schindler and I convened to collaborate on our All-NBA picks for BasketballNews.com. (Note: None of us have actual votes, this is merely a hypothetical article).

We did not agree on every decision, but reached a consensus for these teams. We also did not fudge any positions. Everyone is eligible at the positions they were selected.

If a player is lower than you believe they should be or absent altogether, please know that we thought extensively about our choices and did not come to these conclusions easily. So many players had a phenomenal year, but there are only 15 spots. We appreciated and loved watching all these players this season; I promise you that much. I labored over my teams. We all did.

This was a joy to produce, and I hope you all find it insightful.

Without further ado, let’s dive in.

Custom Patch Hats

All-NBA First Team 

Stephen Curry, Guard

Season stats: 64 games, 2,211 minutes, 25.5 points, 6.3 assists, 5.2 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 60.1% True Shooting (.437/.380/.923 splits)

Advanced stats: +7.2 EPM (fourth), 15.3 estimated wins added (fifth), +4.32 LEBRON (sixth), 9.6 wins added (fifth)

While injuries and a down shooting year prevented Steph Curry from maintaining an MVP-caliber impact, he was still a sensational player throughout 2021-22 and arguably the NBA’s best guard. His playmaking and defense felt a bit better than recent seasons, whether it was leveraging his gravity to whirl complex reads to teammates, playing the passing lanes for takeaways or cutting off drives with his strength and quickness on the ball. 

Despite his shooting decline, Curry still drilled 37.4% of his pull-up threes and ranked among the league’s best off-the-bounce marksmen. That jumper remains as devastating as ever to opponents, and his off-ball movement bends defenses like nobody else. His constant threat to shoot and hard-nosed screening opened up countless quality looks for the Golden State Warriors' offense. Averaging over 25 points on over 60% TS, given the perceived improvement as a facilitator and defender, along with the sustained off-ball goodness, was enough to earn Curry a First-Team honor.

The two-time MVP feels like the victim of expectation bias, in some regard. His season was brilliant and still rendered him a superstar. But it was below the lofty standard set for himself, so those who surprised or surpassed expectations benefitted while he was dinged. Nonetheless, Curry is a deserved First-Team player and squeaked past a few other worthwhile candidates.

Jayson Tatum, Guard

Season stats: 76 games, 2,731 minutes, 26.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.0 steals, 57.8% True Shooting (.453/.353/.853 splits)

Advanced stats: +5.8 EPM (eighth), 16.3 estimated wins added (third), +5.02 LEBRON (fourth), 12.7 wins added (third)

A bumpy first couple months from Jayson Tatum didn’t indicate a spring-time appearance on any All-NBA squad, let alone First Team. However, the fifth-year wing discovered his shooting stroke in December and beyond, which amplified his defensive prowess and continued growth as a distributor. He really exploded after the All-Star Break, when he averaged 30-7-5-1 on ~ 65% True Shooting in 20 games following February’s intermission. 

All season, teams loaded up to contain Tatum and he sprayed timely reads to open teammates. Although his outside jumper didn’t reach the levels of recent seasons, he enjoyed significant strides as a finisher and foul-drawer, while shooting a career-best 52.4% on twos. His 68.0% mark at the rim tied a career-best, and his .300 free-throw rate was the second-highest of his young career. 

In fact, his +1 Relative True Shooting* (rTS%) — how far above or below one’s TS% is from league average — this year was his best since his rookie season, a time when his scoring load was much simpler and relied less on self-creation. When he was afforded more opportunities to brandish his off-ball talents — with Marcus Smart taking over more ball-handling duties — Tatum also cooked as a spot-up shooter, cutter and mismatch scorer inside. 

Defensively, his crisp execution in a switch-heavy scheme — along with his intersection of length, mobility and instincts — was integral for Boston’s top-ranked defense. The Celtics thrived on eliminating gaps of space for opposing offenses, and Tatum executed that quite well throughout the year. 

While this is by no means the leading aspect of his candidacy, he also was an iron man, finishing fourth in minutes played this year. Boston demanded a ton of him on both ends and he was great, especially after a slow beginning. 

Giannis Antetokounmpo, Forward

Season stats: 67 games, 2,204 minutes, 29.9 points, 11.6 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.1 steals, 63.3% True Shooting (.553/.293/.722 splits)

Advanced stats: +7.3 EPM (third), 15.5 estimated wins added (fourth), +6.59 LEBRON (third), 12 wins added (fourth)

Fresh off an NBA championship and Finals MVP — a run where he displayed significant and vital growth — Giannis Antetokounmpo once again added dimensions to his offensive repertoire. Thanks to more counters in the half-court, a better mid-range pull-up and persistently great finishing, he nearly secured the scoring title, averaging a career-high 29.9 points per game. 

His footwork as a shooter and patience as a driver are notably improved from both MVP campaigns (is a third in the works?), and he also carried over his passing development that bubbled during last year's postseason. Among lasers to corner shooters, deft feeds to cutters or other reads stemming from the mammoth attention devoted to him, Antetokounmpo was better equipped than ever to pick apart half-court defenses. 

Amid Brook Lopez’s prolonged absence, Antetokounmpo shouldered a massive load defensively. He was Milwaukee’s lone credible rim-protector and had to fill an array of ball-screen coverages, namely dropping, trapping and switching. There were some bumps along the way, but he remains an elite weak-side helper. His versatility proved instrumental in preventing the Bucks from entirely cratering without Lopez around (14th in Defensive Rating).

Joel Embiid, Forward

Season stats: 68 games, 2,297 minutes, 30.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 blocks, 1.1 steals, 61.6% True Shooting (.499/.371/.814 splits)

Advanced stats: +7.9 EPM (second), 17 estimated wins added (second), +6.7 LEBRON (second), 12.5 wins added (third)

For the second consecutive season, Joel Embiid performed like a top-three MVP candidate with a legitimate case to bring home the trophy. After expanding his scoring versatility a year ago, he returned to build upon that, claiming the scoring title and creating for others like never before. He was a grab-and-go machine off the defensive glass, forcing cross-matches in transition to either score for himself or generate beneficial matchups for his teammates.

In addition, Embiid's pick-and-roll game grew, which largely came into relevancy once James Harden entered the fold. The 28-year-old big man showcased patience and savvy as a roller, and his interior passing was considerably better than previous years. The elite post scoring and foul-drawing continued to fluster defenses.

Although his defensive consistency wavered, the Philadelphia 76ers still finished tied for 10th in DRTG (according to Cleaning The Glass) despite quite limited personnel around him. That’s predominantly a product of his rim-deterrence, versatile pick-and-roll coverage and timely rotations. More than a few times this season, Embiid’s wide-ranging defensive exploits led the Sixers to victory.

He also played the most minutes and games of his career, a number that would’ve been even higher had he not been sidelined for nine games with COVID in November. Embiid was dominant last year and returned a shade better, buoying a shorthanded Philadelphia roster much of the season.

Nikola Jokic, Center

Season stats: 74 games, 2,476 minutes, 27.1 points, 13.8 rebounds, 7.9 assists, 1.5 steals, 66.1% True Shooting, (.583/.337/.810 split)

Advanced stats: +9.3 EPM (first), 20.7 estimated wins added (first), +7.63 LEBRON (first), 14.9 wins added (first)

Speaking of buoying a shorthanded roster, that was the ethos of Nikola Jokic’s follow-up season after earning MVP in 2021-22. The Denver Nuggets were without their second- and third-best players virtually all year in Jamal Murray and Michael Porter Jr., but won 48 games to finish sixth in an excellent Western Conference behind the greatness of its superstar big man.

Jokic was an even better scorer than last season, lofting in floaters, fadeaways, pull-up jumpers and spinning finishes at foolishly-high rates. His level of scoring volume and efficiency is not quite to the degree of Curry in 2015-16, but it’s not far off, which is wildly impressive. 

He also grew defensively, both in his rebounding and on the interior. His hands are arguably the best in the NBA, and he uses them to ping-pong rebounds into his mitts or break up passes.

Of course, the passing is still absolutely brilliant. Jokic organizes the four players around him, dicing up opponents with skip passes, one-handed outlets, short-roll dimes and a plethora of other reads only he can execute. This dude was masterful all year and a joy to watch.

All-NBA Second Team

Trae Young, Guard

Season stats: 76 games, 2,652 minutes, 28.4 points, 9.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 60.3% True Shooting (.460/.382/.904 splits)

Advanced stats: +4.9 EPM (11th), 14.2 estimated wins added (sixth), +3.02 LEBRON (20th), 8.8 wins added (eighth)

Do not be fooled by the Atlanta Hawks’ underwhelming regular season. Trae Young was absolutely splendid and spearheaded Atlanta’s second-ranked offense. To compensate for the lowest free-throw rate since his rookie year (.358), he simply turned it up everywhere else as a shooter. He posted career-bests at the rim (59%), from mid-range (47%) and beyond the arc (39%), which gave him the best rTS% of his NBA tenure at +3.7.

When teams funneled him inside the arc and sat on lobs near the rim, Young took advantage by hunting out cozy mid-range jumpers, and relied on his silky floater less often. Nobody hoisted more pull-up triples than Young this season (525), and he cashed in on a respectable 37.0% of them. With his deft handle and shiftiness, he routinely carved out space for open looks, often on stepbacks or sweeping crossovers into off-the-bounce jumpers. 

As a passer, everything just seemed a little crisper than in prior years, which augmented his already dazzling playmaking portfolio. Virtually every read with either hand is in Young's arsenal, and he can manipulate defensive positioning via ball placement and look-offs. He’ll vary the release speed and angle of his feeds, whether it’s a lob inside, skip to the exterior or threading the needle into tight quarters.

He’s a truly elite offensive engine, and while his defense is quite poor, it doesn’t come close to quelling his All-NBA credentials. Young played a ton, was great in those minutes and propped up everyone around him by consistently spinning the defense into rotation. The man is a superbly adroit savant.

Devin Booker, Guard

Season stats: 68 games, 2,345 minutes, 26.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.1 steals, 57.6% True Shooting (.466/.383/.868 splits)

Advanced stats: +4.5 EPM (16th), 11.9 estimated wins added (11th), +2.71 LEBRON (26th), 7.6 wins added (15th)

Another inaugural All-NBA honoree next to Young, Devin Booker’s scoring versatility, playmaking and improved defense helped key the Phoenix Suns' franchise-best 64-win season. In the 11 games he played post-All-Star Break without Chris Paul, Booker was especially magnificent. The Suns went 8-3 in those outings, where Booker averaged 28-7-4.5-2 on ~ 64% TS. When Paul returned, Booker continued his torrid pace, averaging 31-6-4.5-1.5 on ~ 64% TS in 17 total contests after the All-Star Break.

All year, Booker delivered with impressively tough shot-making. The way he sets up/utilizes screens and maneuvers off the ball are harmonic fits in head coach Monty Williams’ motion-based offensive scheme. Playing alongside someone like Paul — who is maximized in a ball-dominant role — Booker’s ability to fashion high-level offensive impact off the ball (with brief touches) enables the Point God to flourish. He’s best flowing into the Suns' well-designed Chicago action, which allows him to pull up for jumpers, toss lobs to a diving big man or find a shooter around the arc.

The 2021-22 campaign also represented the strongest defensive season of his career. His size and lateral quickness helped him stymie certain assignments on the ball. He’s long been pretty punctual and good as an interior helper. The attention to detail defensively was consistently a boon for Booker and the Suns.

Luka Doncic, Forward

Season stats: 65 games, 2,301 minutes, 28.4 points, 9.1 rebounds, 8.7 assists, 1.2 steals, 57.1% True Shooting (.457/.353/.744 splits)

Advanced stats: +4.5 EPM (17th), 11.7 estimated wins added (13th), +2.54 LEBRON (30th), 7.1 wins added (23rd)

Similar to Tatum, Luka Doncic struggled out of the gates, but gathered a ton of momentum as his team climbed the standings. Once the three-ball exited freezing temperatures, he percolated as a scorer. 

Doncic worked quite often from the post or off the ball for Dallas Mavericks head coach Jason Kidd, at least considerably more than he did under Rick Carlisle. Luka's size, touch and playmaking warped defenses. Along with those tweaks, he exhibited heightened defensive awareness off the ball and applied his frame to turn back drives. 

Aside from those shifts, though, 2021-22 was a prototypical Doncic year on the whole. His passing was among the league’s best and massively eased the tension of creation for his teammates. 

With elite change of pace/direction, a 6-foot-7 frame and slithery handle, Doncic is a spectacular slasher. He averaged the second-most drives per game this season and converted 55.5% of his shots off of them. Preventing his paint touches is ridiculously tough, and helps headline his status as a potent initiator.

Kevin Durant, Forward

Season stats: 55 games, 2,047 minutes, 29.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 63.4% True Shooting (.518/.383/.910 splits)

Advanced stats: +6.4 EPM (fifth), 13.0 estimated wins added (seventh), +3.79 LEBRON (ninth), 7.5 wins added (17th)

Kevin Durant was marvelous in his 14th year, donning various hats for the Brooklyn Nets while many teammates shuffled in and out of the lineup or grappled with inconsistency. He still lorded over the mid-range, shooting a preposterous 55.5% on 407 attempts in that area (fourth-most). His offensive versatility shined, as he worked out of ball-screens, pindowns, transition opportunities and a host of other contexts to slap down 30 a night.

When teams doubled, Durant comfortably and promptly fed an open teammate, and was entirely ready for the swath of defensive attention. In single coverage, he elevated over the top and left the opposition praying for solutions. 

Brooklyn’s defense as a whole ebbed and flowed its way to a 20th-place finish, but Durant excelled as an interior helper, rebounder and communicator. In the Nets’ switch-heavy scheme, he constantly organized and streamlined the carousel of defensive assignments for everyone.

The Nets were a classic Jekyll-and-Hyde club, though to no indictment of KD, who tailored his game on both ends to fill whatever gaps presented themselves on a nightly basis.

Karl-Anthony Towns, Center

Season stats: 74 games, 2,476 minutes, 24.6 points, 9.8 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.1 blocks, 1.1 steals, 64% True Shooting (.529/.410/.822 splits)

Advanced stats: +4.6 EPM (14th), 12.8 estimated wins added (ninth), +2.83 LEBRON (22nd), 8.2 wins added (11th)

Playing for the same man who once helped unlock some of Jokic’s latent greatness, Karl-Anthony Towns diversified and bolstered his offensive prowess in his first full season under Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch. 

Compared to previous seasons, Towns operated less on the low block and more as a face-up scorer and driver. Midway through the year, he really began trimming down his three-point volume in favor of drives and shots inside the arc, which ignited some dominant stretches of play. Rattling him, something that  physicality and discipline might have accomplished previously, became rather onerous.

The versatile shooting continued to keep defenses honest, and he wielded the jumper into driving angles using fakes and jabs. Towns attacked off the catch, navigated the lane with a controlled pace and proved adept at adjusting around late-arriving help near the rim. If the opposition sagged off to prepare for a drive, he’d nail open jumpers. 

Early in the season and at other points of his career, he drifted toward flashy over effective passes too often, a habit that largely evaporated by year’s end. 

Finch also reshaped Minnesota’s ball-screen defense from generally playing drop to trapping/showing, a switch that better suited Towns’ game. His mobility and active hands turned teams over, and he stayed engaged much more often than he tended to in drop. 

Everything coalesced for Towns and the Timberwolves this season. He ruled and should earn an All-NBA appearance for the second time in his career.

All-NBA Third Team

Ja Morant, Guard

Season stats: 57 games, 1,889 minutes, 27.4 points, 6.7 assists, 5.7 rebounds, 1.2 steals, 57.5% True Shooting (.493/.344/.761 splits)

Advanced stats: +3.5 EPM (32nd), 8.3 estimated wins added (39th), +3.45 LEBRON (12th), 7.1 wins added (22nd)

Captaining the upstart Memphis Grizzlies is Ja Morant, who completed the leap from rising star to full-fledged star in his third year. The most important storyline in Morant’s evolution was his scoring development.

A season ago, he averaged 28 points per 100 possessions on 53.7% TS (-3.5 rTS%). This year, he averaged 39.6 points per 100 possessions on 57.5% TS (+0.9 rTS%). Per game, the scoring jumped from 19.1 points to 27.4 points.

To significantly increase efficiency and volume to the magnitude Morant did is incredibly arduous. That sort of maturation cannot be overstated. 

Fueling this for him was the transition from a good driver to an elite one. In 2020-21, Morant averaged 18.4 drives and shot 45.1% on them. In 2021-22, he averaged 20.9 drives and shot 51.0% on them. My hunch is that Morant added core strength, which empowered him to both have better balance as a finisher and convert a greater number of those acrobatic sequences near the hoop.

The bounce and flexibility have long been prevalent, but they were sometimes muted by insufficient strength. Those occurrences were less frequent in Year 3, as he stayed on balance against rim-protection or even plowed through it at times. Pair his blossoming as a scorer with his dribble penetration, pick-and-roll artistry and playmaking savvy, and Morant has emerged as one of the NBA’s top offensive guards to earn his first All-NBA berth.

DeMar DeRozan, Guard

Season stats: 76 games, 2,743 minutes, 27.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 59% True Shooting (.504/.352/.877 splits)

Advanced stats: +3.2 EPM (38th), 11.6 estimated wins added (15th), +1.4 LEBRON (69th), 6.5 wins added (29th)

Dubbed "The King of The Fourth," DeMar DeRozan anchored a Chicago Bulls squad ravaged by injury with absurd bucket after absurd bucket for various parts of the season. His 157 points in the clutch trailed only Embiid (158), and he did it on a sparkling 67.0% TS.

The veteran wing predominantly operated from the top of the key. He weaponized his size, footwork and handle to frequent the mid-range, where he continuously rained contested pull-ups over the outstretched arms of ill-fated defenders. When they infringed upon his airspace, DeRozan busted out fakes to draw fouls or step through into space for easier shots. When too many eyes or bodies flocked his way, he rifled passes to open teammates.

He ranked in the 100th percentile in mid-range frequency (71%) and 88th percentile in accuracy (49%). According to PBPStats, his 1,249 self-created shots were third league-wide, and he posted an Effective Field Goal percentage of 51.7% on them, nearly 3.5 percentage points higher than the NBA average. 

DeRozan put on a shot-making clinic all year and guided Chicago to its first playoff appearance since 2016-17.

LeBron James, Forward

Season stats: 56 games, 2,084 minutes, 30.3 points, 8.2 assists, 6.2 rebounds, 1.3 steals, 1.1 blocks, 61.9% True Shooting (.524/.359/.756 splits)

Advanced stats: +6.1 EPM (sixth), 12.8 estimated wins added (eighth), +3.44 LEBRON (13th), 7.9 wins added (13th)

LeBron James authored a divisive and injury-riddled season, but he was damn good when he suited up. His 39 points per 100 possessions were his most since 2009-10, while his +5.3 rTS% was his highest mark since 2017-18. As Los Angeles touted a revolving, mercurial cast of role players, both in name and production, James embodied a number of responsibilities and handled them admirably. 

At times, he played center and the Lakers posted a minus-0.3 Net Rating in those 2,133 possessions, per Cleaning The Glass (which is relatively good given their minus-3.6 season-long NET). Other times, he operated as the lead guard. His scoring chops glimmered on and off the ball. Despite the Lakers’ prohibitive floor-spacing, he was a bruising, powerful driver, living at the hoop and holding court in the paint (~ 75% around the rim).

Although James’ defense faltered post-All-Star Break — where he often failed to rotate off the ball or pick up assignments in a timely manner — he was overwhelmingly good in the 41 games pre-All-Star Break. He roamed the back line as a low man to alter shots inside, discreetly hunted takeaways in the passing lanes and overwhelmed some players at the point-of-attack with his size and mobility. 

This season will not distinguish itself among James’ many, many standout campaigns, yet he played excellent ball when available. It’s assuredly an All-NBA-caliber year, even amid his own absences and shortcomings, as well as the Lakers’ collective struggles.

Pascal Siakam, Forward

Season stats: 68 games, 2,578 minutes, 22.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 56.5% True Shooting (.494/.344/.749 splits)

Advanced stats: +2.3 EPM (61st), 9.2 estimated wins added (28th), +1.75 LEBRON (57th), 6.6 wins added (27th)

Emblematic of Toronto’s bounce-back year is Pascal Siakam, who starred in his 68 games, particularly as the season progressed. When injuries and a cold spell plagued All-Star Fred VanVleet in the second half, Siakam shouldered a heftier load and papered over his co-star’s struggles. 

Whereas last year Siakam looked a smidge slower than the seasons prior, his verve and zip returned to sharpen his creation chops. His handle and first step were reliable advantages against like-sized forwards, and he consistently exploited mismatches. Siakam seeks out contact to score through, banking on his touch and balance as the bedrocks of this gambit. 

With the Raptors’ creator options fairly limited beyond Siakam on many nights, opponents sent waves of reinforcements toward his drives and aimed to disrupt him. Instead, Siakam became an even better facilitator, pivoting, prodding and weaving his way into open passing angles for a career-high assist rate of 22.5%.

Toronto flew around defensively and notched the NBA’s top turnover rate. Such an approach played up the mobility and ground coverage of its rangy wings, and Siakam’s capacity to handle the taxing responsibility helped achieve that. His off-ball awareness and motor seemed to trend upward throughout the season, and he really capped things off well in recent weeks. 

The 28-year-old had a phenomenal year and was a massive part of Toronto winning 48 games.

Rudy Gobert, Center

Season stats: 66 games, 2,120 minutes, 15.6 points, 14.7 rebounds, 2.1 blocks, 73.2% True Shooting (.713/.000/.690 splits)

Advanced stats: +5.1 EPM (10th), 11.7 estimated wins added (11th), +4.97 LEBRON (fifth), 9.4 wins added (sixth)

The reigning Defensive Player of the Year who’s received three straight Third Team All-NBA selections carried forth his consistency in 2021-22. Rudy Gobert glued together Utah’s shoddy perimeter defense with elite pick-and-roll coverage and rim-protection, ensuring the Jazz still finished 10th in DRTG.

Opponents shot 13.1% worse than their average on attempts within 6 feet of the hoop against Gobert. That number doesn’t even include the assortment of looks he dissuaded altogether from his domineering presence. 

Utah experimented more with its ball-screen defense this season, having Gobert switch, trap or show periodically — and the big man fared pretty well in those situations. As a drop defender, his positioning, length and agility are remarkable. Nobody performed in drop coverage better. His short-area quickness for a 7-foot-1 center is astonishing.

By no means did Gobert spearhead the Jazz’s top-ranked offense, but it certainly wouldn't have reached those heights without his rarified finishing (~ 77% at the rim), roll gravity and space-chiseling picks. He ties together much of their efforts and punctuates many possessions in some form. His screening often completely neutralizes point-of-attack defenders, and provides ball-handlers a vacant runway to the paint.

Gobert is just damn good. He’s among the league’s preeminent defenders and a wonderfully complementary offensive player. That was once again the case this season.

Because this season was overflowing with talent, Nekias, Mark and I also included a fourth team for our honorable mentions. I won’t go into detail about each player, but we wanted to publicize those players who just missed the cut, enjoyed stellar campaigns and certainly have a case for inclusion.
