The Suns' Steve Nash and Amar’e Stoudemire were named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Nash garners his seventh career All-NBA Team selection, his second Second Team honor (2008), for recording the greatest statistical season for a point guard over the age of 35 in NBA history.

Nash averaged 16.5 points and became the oldest player in league history to lead the league in assists by averaging an NBA-best 11.0 assists. It was the fourth time in the last six seasons since returning to Phoenix that Nash has led the NBA in assists.

The two-time NBA MVP was also named an All-NBA First Team selection three times, all with Phoenix (2005, 2006, 2007) and a Third Team selection in 2002 and 2003 with Dallas.

Stoudemire earns the fourth All-NBA Team selection and Second Team honors for the third time in his career (2005, 2008), for a season in which he averaged a team-high 23.1 points, his most since 2007-08, and a team-best 8.9 rebounds.

Stoudemire was one of only two NBA players to average at least 22 points and eight boards (Chris Bosh) this season. The 2010 All-Star starter averaged 26.6 points after the All-Star break, fourth-most in the NBA overall.

Stoudemire was named to the First Team in 2007.

LeBron James, the 2009-10 MVP and Dwight Howard (Orland), the 2009-10 NBA Defensive Player of the Year, were unanimous selections to the 2009-10 All-NBA First Team.
