    1st team Jokic (carried the Nuggets, all around a better player than Embiid, better defender, passer, shooter and more clutch, Embiid only scores more because he shoots more)
    2nd team Embiid
    3rd team Vucevic (21 PPG and 12 RPG carrying the Magic)

      KAT was a MONSTER after all star break and also he is really good all season long. Gobert only defends and rebounds, KAT scores, rebounds, blocks and even though they have a bad record, stats are also valuable. Gobert is leading on dunks and everybody can dunk. Gobert only shoot at the paint and KAT shoots better at the 3, mid-range and maybe in the paint and also in the FT line. Jacoby wins, Jalen losses. Thank you

        Why would KAT be eligible at forward? The only other center on the Wolves roster is Gorgui Dieng, and they never play together. KAT is a center.

            Extra 30 M should be earned only by making 1st All NBA Team or winning an MVP award.

              1) Jokic
              2) Embiid
              3) Gobert

              Easy. These are the best 3 center's this year.

                Gobert should be there, but we got to give KAT that money tho

                      You’re right KAT shouldn’t be in the convo with Jokic.

                      Jokic shouldn’t be compared to a loser

                    Embiid, joker, rudy, drummond, and vucevic ahead of AD (didn't play enough) or KAT (fake stats plying for a losing team)

                          Stats aren’t important to Gobert, all he cares about is winning. Most of Gobert’s influence on the game isn’t recorded. He forces teams to change their offense by being who he is, a defensive juggernaut.

                                      2nd team Jokic

                                        Easy W for Rudy, Jazz made the playoffs while Kat couldnt lead the Wolves to the 8th seed

                                          Winning does not matter for all nba teams. All nba voters look at stats and individual performances and compare them to how you played players at your position. KAT has better stats and has beaten Rudy Gobert each time they faced each other if you look at individual performances. If winning actually matters how did DeMarcus Cousins make all nba 2nd team when the Sacramento Kings were 13th in the western conference

                                        Kat might be the best offensive C in the league, dudes definitely all nba. Yes Kat isn’t great defensively but for all the praise Rudy gets, remember that he can’t shoot and has difficulty defending the perimeter

                                          beEMvE36 beEMvE36 beEMvE36 Capela, AD, Adams, Horford and Draymond (when he plays C) are all better perimeter defenders than Rudy imo. Im not saying Rudy isn’t great, he’s definitely the best defensive C in the league but he’s not perfect. The game has 2 sides of the floor and I just feel Kats overall impact and versatility is better

                                          What centre guards perimeter and paint like Rudy?? Rudy is jazz best player easily. Watch how they defend players. They make them drive towards Rudy and let him deal with it. That’s why Donovan Mitchell isn’t on any all nba lists

                                        Why should KAT win it over Golbert... Golbert helped his team make the playoffs, What did KAT do?

                                          Patrick Khoury The roles are completely different Rudy has to play defense and grab boards and maybe get a putback he has no offensive skill. His team is overall good Kat on the other hand is asked to do way more his usage rate is significantly higher and he is obviously the better all around player at a younger age. Simply if Kat was on the jazz that team gets better you can’t say the same if Rudy was on the wolves.

                                          @Dylan Mailloux All these people who think making all nba teams is about winning. Lol KAT deserves 2nd all nba and these people are talking about him making 3rd.

                                          Please explain how DeMarcus Cousins made all nba 2nd team when the Sacramento Kings were 13th in the western conference.

Towns improved immensely on defense last year after the Butler trade. It’s fine if you just want to be a casual fan and not do any real research, but don’t act like you know what you’re talking about.

                                                            so, to help him, you want 30 milion out frot t'wolves cap space?

                                                          Yes please, vote for Gobert so KAT's salary doesn't eat up the whole team... and btw the all nba team is an individual award, so KAT is by far the most deserving... imagine sticking up for boogie and AD as they made their all nba teams when their teams didn't win jack shit and now coming up with the "I reward winning" narrative... well at least AD carried the pels to the playoffs, but boogie? Wtf did he do with his team in Sacramento to get awarded for "winning"? Smh it's funny how ppl change the narrative whenever they feel like it.

                                                            @Reuben Newman At least Gobert had a team to work with and impact upon. KAT had to work with RoCo being out for most of the season, Wiggins chucking up bad shots and not doing anything significant, adjusting to playing with 3rd string PGs like Bayless and heck even Isaiah Canaan, going through the whole Butler situation, and still tried to shut the haters up by dominating ppl in the post and posterizing ppl left and right, and to carry a franchise with nothing to work with. He's improved in every major statistical category too. The significance KAT had on the wolves is far bigger than the one Gobert had on the jazz imo, but I don't think anyone will care because no one cares about Minnesota anyways.

                                                            Yes,arguably means not for certain but you can argue. I made a comment on this season because its extremely rare for any player to suddenly go from a trash defender to a good one after multiple years in the league..honestly I cant think of any situation thats happened off the top of my head.But i just think Gobert is a better player in the sense that he makes more of an impact on his team overall,but KAT indisputibly has more potential & talent.

                                                            @Reuben Newman You clearly said "arguably the best defender in the league" that's why I made that statement. Also, how are you gonna make a statement on THIS season when all you have seen is him in the past? And if he's so much of a liability on defense, then why don't every team try to put him in P&Rs every possession and try to capitalize on his "weak" defense? It's simple; because he's not as bad of a defender as ppl claim he is... The reason that the twolves sucked on defense was that they couldn't contest corner 3s and 3s in general to save their lives and everyone was sucked out of the paint leaving it wide open. It's not solely KAT's fault that he's supposedly "one of the worst defensive bigs in the league", it's the overall lack of perimeter defense and lack of personnel, especially losing basically half the team due to injuries. And yes, 16ppg with elite efficiency is indeed great, but that's not what the all nba team is about. It's about individual skill level and numbers, and unfortunately Gobert lacks the skills to really produce at will. I like Gobert, he's a great guy, great player, but the all nba team will always be about offense imo, and KAT is something ppl look into as a future all time big.

                                                            @Reuben Newman If you're calling him one of the worst defensive bigs in the league, then you didn't watch any of the 82 twolves games he's played this season. It's absolutely ridiculous how ppl call him terrible on defense only by listening to other s talk about him and not by watching him play. Not only has he always been a solid to good 1v1 defender, but he has improved his P&R defense and improved his shot blocking abilities. It's not his problem when his other teammates don't fight through screens and do their job on defense. Gobert is better defensively, sure, but he can't do anything to create his own shot and relies solely on his teammates to make a play for him. That's not solid offensively, that's like deandre jordan or clint capela, and no one says they're solid offensively. I don't even think he's the best defensive player in the league, just because you're the best defensive player on a great defensive team, doesn't make you the best defender. In the league where everything is switchable and every possession relies on mismatches, I would say guys that can defend multiple positions like PG or Kawhi are the best defensively.
