James, Curry lead NBA All-Star voting

James, Curry lead NBA All-Star voting

With the second round of fan returns for the 2018 All-Star voting, LeBron James and Stephen Curry now lead their respective conferences. However, Durant is still the leader in the Western frontcourt; Curry leads the guards list.

In the Eastern Conference, specifically, it's essentially yearly battle to see who gets to take on - or, more precisely, lose - to LeBron James in the playoffs. The Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving is third in the conference and overall with 1,370,643 votes. Toronto's DeMar DeRozan is second among East guards with 537,168 votes and Philadelphia rookie Ben Simmons is third with 397,942. Curry, who has received just under 1.4 million, has a narrow edge on Durant among West players. Houston Rockets' James Harden (978,540) and Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook (791,332) are second and third, respectively.

With fans making up 50 percent of the voting (active National Basketball Association players and National Basketball Association media make up 25 percent each), it's likely James and Curry will be the team captains under the new All-Star setup. Voting stops on Monday, January 15th so make sure you vote for your favorite players. The leading vote-getters will be named captains and will select their teammates for the 67th All-Star Game, which will take place on February 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Terrorists continue to operate freely inside Pakistan and there is a relationship between terrorist organisations and the establishment, he said.

Among the frontcourt players, Durant leads with 1,326,759 votes, while New Orleans Pelicans big Anthony Davis comes in second with 664,687.

Under a revamped All-Star Game format, the two captains this year will choose their rosters from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves. I think George will surpass Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins because of people liking him more than they like those two. The captains are automatically starters.
