Tim Duncan earned another honor during his resurgent 16th season, making the All-NBA first team for the first time since 2006-07 while Tony Parker was selected to the second team, the NBA announced on Thursday.

The Spurs treated them to a round of a applause when the news was announced by coach Gregg Popovich at the end of practice.

“It’s quite an honor for those guys,” Popovich said. “I’m thrilled for them. I’m real excited that people would put them in that position. What an honor. All-NBA anything is pretty special. It’s something we really respect and feel great about. And then we’ll forget about it.”

Duncan, who did not speak to the media on Thursday, earned his 10th first-team selection and 14th overall after averaging 17.8 points, 9.9 rebounds and 2.65 blocks with a 24.4 Player Efficiency Rating.

Duncan was previously named to the All-Defensive and All-Star teams for the 14th time. He extended his franchise record for All-NBA picks, a list that includes David Robinson(10), George Gervin (8), Tony Parker (3), Manu Ginobili (2), Dennis Rodman (1).

He was initially named to first team back in 1997-98, when his peers included Michael Jordan, Shaquille O’Neal, Karl Malone and Gary Payton. Fifteen years later, he’s joined by LeBron James, Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul.

Duncan turned 37 last month, but for historical purposes he will be listed as 36 for his 16th NBA season. He is the oldest player to make the first team since 38-year-old Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in 1985-86.

His 10th first-team nod ties Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Elgin Baylor, Bob Cousy, Bob Pettit and Jerry West for the second-most in NBA history. Bryant’s 11th selection ties Karl Malone for the all-time record.

“I know he was touched when he found out this morning,” Popovich said.
