Lakers’ LeBron James, Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo still lead All-Star fan voting

Antetokounmpo is second with 2,670,816 and leads an Eastern Conference starting five that now includes Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. George joins Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic in the conference's frontcourt, with Minnesota Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry in the backcourt.

Leonard's teammate Kyle Lowry also stayed locked in sixth place among East guards.

The East guard group is again led by the Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving (2,381,901) and the Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade (1,199,789).

The two team captains will draft rosters from the players voted as starters and reserves, picking players regardless of conference affiliation.

The fan vote, which opened on Christmas Day, accounts for 50% of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters. The network will announce reserves, selected by National Basketball Association head coaches, on Thursday, Jan. 31.

At the same time, McGluwa says both black and white parents he spoke to insist that this was an isolated incident. Wednesday was supposed to be a joyful occasion for parents as their children started the new school year.


The captains will be the All-Star starter from each conference who receives the most fan votes in his conference as details of the All-Star Draft will be released at a later date.

Voting for fans, players and media will conclude on January 21.

Dwyane Wade is also likely to get a farewell All-Star mention, getting close to 1,200,000 votes in his last season in the National Basketball Association.

The 68th All-Star game will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on February 17 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.
