James, Antetokounmpo lead NBA All-Star fan voting

The fan vote, which opened December 25, accounts for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks continue to lead NBA All-Star voting in latest fan ballot returns released Wednesday.

The starting five - which includes three frontcourt and two backcourt positions spots - for the Western Conference are James, Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks), Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) and Derrick Rose (Minnesota Timberwolves).

Players of his quality and other players like Declan Rice, Felipe Anderson, other clubs will want them, but that is one thing. The Austria global has reinvented himself as a centre-forward, scoring 11 times to keep the Hammers up last season.

The leading vote getters for the Eastern Conference squad are Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard (Toronto Raptors), Joel Embid (Philadelphia 76ers), Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics) and Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat).

Current NBA players account for 25 percent of the vote; so does a media panel. Voting among current players counts 25 percent and votes from media covering the National Basketball Association counts the other 25 percent. Ball and Kuzma, along with Brandon Ingram, were selected to the Rising Stars Game last season.

The two team captains will draft rosters from the players voted as starters and reserves, picking players regardless of conference affiliation. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference. Coaches will determine the reserves. A third report on all-star balloting will come out on January 17 before the final votes are then revealed for the 10 starters on January 24.
