(CNN)For LeBron James, breaking NBA records has become a habit.

And on Wednesday, he broke yet another, becoming the player selected to the most All-NBA teams when it was announced he was selected to his 16th in his 17-year career.

James was named in the All-NBA first team alongside reigning NBA Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo, Houston Rockets guard James Harden, Dallas Maverick guard Luka Doncic and James' teammate Anthony Davis.


He also extended his own record for the most All-NBA first team selections by being named to his 13th All-NBA first team.

The 35-year-old made yet more history alongside teammate Davis as the eighth pair of teammates to each earn first-team honors during a season.

James and Antetokounmpo both received All-NBA first team votes on all 100 ballots to finish with 500 points each.

He even seems to be evolving his game, leading the NBA in assists for the first time in his career.

Doncic, 21, is the first player to be selected to the All-NBA first team in either his first or second season since Duncan in 1998-99.

The All-NBA teams are selected by a global panel of 100 sportswriters and broadcasters.

Players were awarded five points for each vote to the All-NBA first team, three points for each vote to the second team and one point for each vote to the third team.
