NBA Most Valuable Player LeBron James is the leading vote-getting for the league’s all-defensive team.

He totaled 53 points, including 24 first-team votes, and was the lone player to garnish 50 points.

Rounding out the starting team are Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka, Chris Paul of the Clippers, Tony Allen from Memphis and Dwight Howard of the Magic.

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

The voting panel consisted of the NBA’s 30 head coaches. They’re not allowed to pick their own players.
