CLEVELAND– LeBron James was named to the 2015-2016 All-NBA first team, the league announced on Thursday. It is his 10th first team honor.

A panel of sports journalists chooses the list of first, second and third teams by position.

For the 12th straight season, LeBron averaged at least 25 points, breaking the league record held by Karl Malone. He had 28 double-doubles and three triple-doubles.

The power forward was voted to the first team in 2006, and 2008 to 2016. There are only two players with more first team selections, Kobe Bryant and Malone, who each have 11.

James is 11th on the league’s all-time scoring list. During this year’s Eastern Conference Finals, he passed Shaquille O’Neal to be fourth in NBA all-time postseason scoring.
