It would be bigger news if he hadn't made it, but Derrick Rose is a first-team NBA All-Star as well as the league's MVP, NBA officials announced Thursday.
Rose, who is making first appearance on the All-NBA first team, is joined LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard and Kobe Bryant on the first team. James was the only unanimous first-teamer.
One voter among the 119 sportswriters and broadcasters who had ballots didn't make the Bulls point guard a first-team selection. Howard also had 118 first-team votes.
The second team: Pau Gasol, Dirk Nowitzki, Amar'e Stoudemire, Dwyane Wade and Russell Westbrook.
The third team: LaMarcus Aldridge, Zach Randolph, Al Horford, Manu Ginobili and Chris Paul.
