Fan make up 50 percent of the voting for the 10 starters for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leader in the Eastern Conference with 2,670,816 votes.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, a forward for the Milwaukee Bucks, leads all Eastern Conference players with 2,670,816 votes, second to only James overall in the National Basketball Association. This round of voting returns revealed that Doncic has actually passed Curry in a fairly stunning move to become the second leading vote-getter in the Western Conference.

Harden's problem for captaincy is that he's now seventh in fan voting, trailing the likes of Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Steph Curry, and Luka Doncic.


Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard remains in second place among Eastern Conference forwards after the second return of National Basketball Association all-star voting. Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25% of the vote.

Last season, Ball was selected to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge and with the lack of blue chipper point guards prospects in last year's draft, there's a very good chance Ball is selected to participate again. Voting for National Basketball Association players and media also concludes on January 21. The top vote victor in each conference is named the captain of their team, and then they draft players from either conference's all-star starters and reserves list to comprise their team. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference. The network will announce reserves, selected by National Basketball Association head coaches, on Thursday, Jan. 31.
