The accolades continue to pour in for LeBron James.  The NBA MVP, who also finished 2nd to Dwight Howard for Defensive Player of the Year was a unanimous choice for 2009 All-NBA first team.

It was the second year in a row that James was named first team, an honor voted on by 122 sports-writers from the U.S. and Canada.  Included on the team with James was first-time member Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, who made the team for the 4th time in a row(7th time overall), Dwight Howard and Dirk Nowitzki.

LeBron was the only one to receive first-team votes from all 122 voters.
