LeBron James ties Kobe, Karl Malone with record 11th first-team All-NBA selection

In his 14th season and showing no signs of slowing, LeBron James is on pace to set plenty of NBA records by the time he's done. He picked up an impressive distinction Thursday.

James was named first-team All-NBA for the 11th time, joining Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone as the only players in league history to accomplish the feat. James received 99 out of a possible 100 first-team votes.

At 32, James put up one of the best regular seasons of his career, averaging 26.4 points, 8.7 assists and 8.6 rebounds while shooting 55 percent from the field in a league-leading 37.8 minutes per game. His strong play made him a leading MVP candidate until a lackluster second-half performance by the Cavs likely took him out of the race.

If James keeps up the pace he is on, this won't be the last time we talk about him setting a record.
