Rockets guard James Harden was a unanimous First Team All NBA selection, the league announced Thursday. 

It's the third straight season Harden appeared on the First Team of all 100 ballots of NBA writers and broadcasters, and it's the fifth time in six years he's been selected to the NBA's First Team. 

Harden was the NBA's leading scorer this season after averaging 36.1 points per game. He is joined on the first team by Stephen Curry, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Paul George and Nikola Jokic.

In his seven seasons with the Rockets, Harden has appeared on one of three All NBA teams six times, trailing only Hakeem Olajuwon for most All NBA selections in franchise history (12), and his five First Team picks are one shy of Olajuwon.

Along with his First Team All NBA selection, Harden is a finalist for a second consecutive MVP, which will be awarded June 24.
