The 2009-10 winner, Orlando Magic Center Dwight Howard edged Rondo's 50 points overall (23 first-team votes) with 57 points over.

Rondo, who broke Bob Cousy's Boston Celtics' single-season assists mark, joined Howard, Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and Charlotte Bobcats' Gerald Wallace on the first team.

The former Wildcat from 2005-06 far and away led the NBA in steals this season with 189 swipes, 46 more steals than Monta Ellis with the Golden State Warriors.

Rondo has averaged 13.7 points, 9.8 assists and 2.3 steals per game this season in becoming one of the centerpieces of the Boston Celtics.
