Actual All-NBA Balloting

http://www.nba.com/media/060414-2013-14-All-NBA-Voting.pdf  You are going to have to zoom in to read it. 

Chris Paul, James Harden, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Joakim Noah are the all-NBA first team.

According to this pdf, of 125 ballots, Durant received 123 first-team forward ballots and two first-team guard ballots.  James received 122 first-team forward ballots and 2 first team guard ballots. 

The big surprise was that James Harden narrowly defeated Stephon Curry for the final guard spot.

According to the pdf above, sheridanhoops.com voted Blake Griffin first team all-NBA and LeBron James second-team.  While this is slightly more defensible than the guys who voted for LeBron and Durant as a guard (neither is a guard, when we want Dwight Howard to get first team votes, do we just vote him in as a guard?  a forward?  I mean, WTF?), I won't go through the analysis of even describing what a terrible vote that is.
