NEW YORK (AP) - NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James is the leading vote-getter for the league's all-defensive team.


Thunder forward Serge Ibaka, Clippers guard Chris Paul, Grizzlies guard Tony Allen and Magic center Dwight Howard join the Heat star on the first team announced Wednesday.


Ibaka and Allen earned first-team honors for the first time.


James totaled 53 points, including 24 first-team votes. He averaged 1.9 steals and 7.9 rebounds as Miami ranked fourth in the league in opponent scoring.


The NBA's 30 head coaches vote on the all-defensive team by position. They're not allowed to pick their own players.
