LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo Expand Leads In Second ASG Voting Returns

Fans account for 50% of the vote to determine the 10 starters for the game.

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James leads all players in the league with 2,779,812 votes.

As the leading overall vote-getter so far, James is also atop among Western Conference forwards, with two-time MVP Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors leading among West guards.

In the Eastern Conference, Antetokounmpo (2,670,816) has strengthened his position as the leading vote-getter.

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. Current NBA players and a panel of basketball media each account for 25% of the remaining vote. Yet, the sixth-year center is sixth in the Western Conference in votes among frontcourt players, and has expanded his lead on Denver's Nikola Jokic to almost 300,000 votes.

Voting for fans, players and media will conclude on Monday, Jan. 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET.

The format for drafting teams from last season remains in place.

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.

In the Eastern Conference, Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker and 76ers guard Ben Simmons are third and fourth in the backcourt voting.

The All-Star starters - and captains - will be announced January 24.
