Also missing out on a supermax contract by not making the all-NBA team is Washington guard Bradley Beal.
Perhaps the most notable snub this time around was Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who averaged 21.5 points per game this season while often being asked to guard the opposing team's top player.
He didn't seem very pleased.
Antetokounmpo and Harden were the only players unanimously selected for the First Team with both players receiving First Team votes on all 100 ballots to finish with 500 points each.
Green, who is a free agent after next season, could qualify by winning Defensive Player of the Year for the second time in his career or by making the All-NBA team.
Nevertheless, could the financial ramifications for the All-NBA players' current teams benefit the Bulls?
So is the second team better than the first in actuality?
When he learned Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets was one of the guards that earned a spot ahead of him, Thompson rolled his eyes and shook his head. Players who received votes at multiple positions were slotted at the position where they received the most votes.
"That's cool and all - I respect those guys - but when you go to five straight Finals, it takes more than just a couple of All-NBA guys".
Lillard, a second-team selection, can get more than $190 million over four years with a new contract in Portland. If he signs the supermax, such a deal would give him the largest contract in National Basketball Association history.
While the focus is on a critical Game 5 that is only hours away from tipping off at Fiserv Forum, the latest honor regarding the Milwaukee Bucks' sterling regular season has surfaced and it once again centers around their superstar, Giannis Antetokounmpo.
Klay Thompson in action. The fact that media decisions ultimately affect how much money players can earn will likely come up when the next CBA is negotiated.
"It is what it is. I can't control it", a visibly dejected Thompson added.
But he did make one thing clear. "Do I think there are that many guards better than me? No".
Instead, a panel of select sportswriters and broadcasters voted for Westbrook (178 points) and Walker (51 points) over Thompson (27).
