James Harden had a rough ending to the postseason, but his regular season effort was enough to nudge him just above other potential MVP candidates in a significant category.

Harden was the only unanimous first team All-NBA selection, the league announced on Thursday. The Houston Rockets point guard earned a perfect 500 points, making every voter’s first team squad, the third time in the last four seasons he’s been given first team honors.

Also appearing on the first team with Harden is LeBron James, who matched an NBA record with his 11th first team selection. Karl Malone and Kobe Bryant are the only other players in league history to have as many first team appearances.
