Jayson Tatum, Jimmy Butler, Rudy Gobert, Ben Simmons and Russell Westbrook have all received the honor of being elected to the 2019-20 All-NBA Third Team.
Tatum and Butler squared off last night in what should be a fantastic Eastern Conference Finals between two of the best teams in today's NBA. Tatum edged out Butler by only six third team votes while both players received exactly 32 second team votes. Gobert was the only player in the group who received a first team vote (1). Simmons and Westbrook rounded out the group and while this is Westbrook's ninth All-NBA award, it is the first time Simmons receives such praise in his third season.
