Stephen Curry's ascension to superstar status took another leap Wednesday when he was voted to the All-NBA Second Team.

The Warriors point guard finished third in the voting among guards with 489 points. Chris Paul (540) and James Harden (502) received the most votes among guards and, therefore, were named to the first team.

Curry, who last week was named the NBA's foremost community servant for 2013-14, is the first Warriors to be named All-NBA first or second team since Latrell Sprewell achieved the honor in 1994.

Curry last season became the first Warriors player voted in as a starter for the NBA All-Star game since Sprewell in 1995. In 78 games last season, Curry averaged 24.0 points (seventh in the league) and 8.5 assists (fifth). He led the league in 30-15 games with four, the most by anyone since Jazz point guard John Stockton rang up four in 1990.

He also led the NBA in three-pointers made (261) for a second consecutive campaign, becoming the first player to lead the league in threes in back-to-back seasons since Ray Allen did so in 2001-02 and 2002-03.

Joining Curry on the second team are Spurs guard Tony Parker (210 votes), Rockets center Dwight Howard (226), Clippers forward Blake Griffin (350) and Timberwolves forward Kevin Love (237).

The first team consisted of Paul and Harden, along with Thunder forward Kevin Durant (625), Heat forward LeBron James (623) and Bulls center Joakim Noah (557).

The All-NBA Teams were chosen by a panel of 125 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada.
