The All-Offense Teammates

You ever wonder why the NBA has an All-Defense team every year, but never an an All-Offense team?

I think it's always been done that way because much more than a 50-50 emphasis is placed on offense when the media selects its All-NBA teams. Consequently, voters feel the need to recognize the slighted great defenders by honoring an All-Defense team.

Hopefully in the future, now that we have adjusted plus-minus stats that make 50-50 evaluations possible, All-NBA teams will place greater importance on defensive contributions.

Which led me to this idea: If we already honor All-Defensive teams separately, why couldn't we set aside an honor for the All-Offensive squad.

So, with that in mind, I submit the 10 best position players who help their offenses run most efficiently in 2010-11, based on Regularized Adjusted Plus-Minus (supplied by Stats-For-The-NBA) multiplied by playing-time percentage.
