Who has the most All-NBA selections in NBA history?

Voted to the All-NBA Second Team for the 2020-21 season, LeBron James extends his lead at the top of the charts for the most All-NBA selections ever.

He now has 17 selections to his name including an NBA-record 13 First Team selections.

After breaking a tie with Hall of Famers Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tim Duncan, and the late Kobe Bryant - all with 15 - last year, James continues to extend his lead.

In all but his rookie year (17 of 18 seasons thus far), James has been a selection on either one of three All-NBA teams.

Here's a look at the NBA players with the most All-NBA selections ever:
