  • LeBron James Takes the Lead in Latest All Star Returns

However, Durant is still the leader in the Western frontcourt; Curry leads the guards list.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo remain the top two vote-getters, but the Cleveland Cavaliers star is now in first place with 1,622,838 votes compared to 1,480,954 for the Milwaukee Bucks big man. New York's Kristaps Porzingis (640,928) is fourth. There are notable movers in both conferences, and there is still one week left for you to vote for your favorite players.

In the Western Conference, Curry takes the top spot among all guards with 1,369,658 votes.




Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving leads all East guards with 1,370,643 votes, followed by Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan (537,168). Houston Rockets' James Harden (978,540) and Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook (791,332) are second and third, respectively. The New Orleans Pelicans' Anthony Davis (664,687) remains in second place, while Golden State's Draymond Green (616,730) has moved ahead of New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins (587,835) for third place. Under a new All-Star Game format, the player who receives the most votes in each conference will serve as a captain, choosing his team from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves. Voting will conclude Monday. 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. National Basketball Association head coaches will select the reserves.

The All-Star starters will be announced in one week, on January 18 on TNT.
