In the voting for Rookie of the Year, Miller, Jaquez, and Podziemski ranked third, fourth, and fifth, respectively. This follows the same order as their rankings in the All-Rookie team voting, with Jaquez being one of only three players to appear on all 99 ballots alongside Wembanyama and Holmgren.Only five rookies have made All-Defense: Duncan, Robinson, Washington’s Manute Bol (1986), Houston’s Hakeem Olajuwon (1985) and the Milwaukee Bucks’ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (1970).

On Monday, the NBA announced that Victor Wembanyama from the San Antonio Spurs was chosen unanimously for the NBA’s All-Rookie team for this season.

The players chosen for the All-Defensive team will be announced on Tuesday, and the All-NBA team will be announced on Wednesday. Wembanyama is a strong contender for first-team All-Defense, as he placed second in the Defensive Player of the Year rankings behind Minnesota’s Rudy Gobert. It is likely that he also received consideration for the All-NBA team.

The outcome was to be expected, as Wembanyama was also unanimously selected as the Rookie of the Year by the same group of 99 voters who submitted their votes for the league’s awards this season.Joining Wembanyama on the first team were the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chet Holmgren, Charlotte Hornets’ Brandon Miller, Miami Heat’s Jaime Jaquez Jr. and Golden State Warriors’ Brandin Podziemski.

If Wembanyama is selected for All-NBA, he will become the 22nd rookie in NBA history to achieve this feat. Out of those, only four have accomplished it in the last 45 seasons: Duncan, Robinson, Michael Jordan of the Chicago Bulls (1985), and Larry Bird of the Boston Celtics (1980).

If Wembanyama is selected for the All-Defense or All-NBA team, he will be the first rookie to achieve this since Tim Duncan (1998) and David Robinson (1990) of the San Antonio Spurs, both of whom, like Wembanyama, were top draft picks.
Holmgren, who came in second to Wembanyama in the Rookie of the Year competition, was also selected as a first-team member by unanimous vote.Associated Press
