Curry, James lead fan voting for All-Star game

A week after releasing the initial returns, the National Basketball Association has revealed the latest round of All-Star balloting results, and James Harden and Chris Paul are holding steady in the top 10 among Western Conference guards. Philadelphia's Joel Embiid is the third-leading vote-getter in the East frontcourt category with 784,287. At third is Sixers' Ben Simmons (397,942), with Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo close behind (385,448). The Bucks forward is now second (1,480,954 votes) followed by Boston Celtics Kyrie Irving (1,370,643 votes), and the Warriors Curry (1,369,658 votes) and Durrant (1,326,059 votes).

With the new All-Star voting format, James and Curry would serve as captains if the voting ended today, and each of them will form their respective teams from the pool of players fans voted in as starters and coaches selected as reserves. The Houston Rockets' James Harden has 978,540 votes and the Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook 791,332. Voting stops on Monday, January 15th so make sure you vote for your favorite players.

The 67th NBA All-Star Game takes place February 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. The captains will choose their teammates first from the starters pool, which will consist of the top two guards and top three frontcourt players from each conference. For the last two frontcourt spots, I chose Anthony Davis who is now second in frontcourt voting and Pual George. Starters will be announced on Thursday, Jan. 18 during TNT NBA Tip-Off at 5 p.m. CT. I think George will surpass Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins because of people liking him more than they like those two.
