The Los Angeles Lakers remain on track to have their first All-Star since 2016 as LeBron James has garnered 2,779,812 votes to maintain his standing as the leading vote-getter in the second fan returns.
Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leader in the Eastern Conference with 2,670,816 votes. As such, both players are headed toward being named team captains in the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.
Meanwhile, Kyle Kuzma (584,842 votes) and Lonzo Ball (529,164) are holding at eighth among Western Conference frontcourt players and guards, respectively. Ball and Kuzma, along with Brandon Ingram, were selected to the Rising Stars Game last season.
Fan voting accounts for 50 percent to determine the 10 starters for the 68th NBA All-Star Game, which will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on Sunday, Feb. 17 at 5 p.m. PT on TNT.
Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with every voter completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Voting for fans, players and media concludes Monday, Jan. 21 at 8:59 p.m. PT.
