Dončić earns fourth straight All-NBA First Team selection


Luka Dončić, the Slovenian basketball superstar, has been named to the All-NBA First Team for the fourth year running even as his Dallas Mavericks failed to appear in this year's NBA play-offs.

The 24-year-old point guard earned his place in the All-NBA First Team along this year's most valuable player (MVP) Joel Embiid (Philadelphia 76ers), Giannis Antetokounmpo (Milwaukee Bucks), Jayson Tatum (Boston Celtics) and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (Oklahoma City Thunder).

Dončić finished eighth in the MVP voting for the 2022/23 regular season after finishing the season with averages of 32.4 points, 8.6 rebounds and 8 assists in 66 games.

He is the 30th in NBA history to have made the All-NBA First Team for four straight years. Karl Malone and LeBron James have the longest streaks, winning the All-NBA First Team accolades 11 times. With five selections Andetokumbo is the only active player with a streak longer than Dončić's.
