James, Durant, and Curry Lead the Way in Early All-Star Voting Returns
The All-Star Game is set to be held in Atlanta on March 7 and we have received our first return of the fan voting.
To the surprise of no one, the tops of the list are fairly obvious.
Kevin Durant, LeBron James, and Steph Curry are the leading vote getters early on, with Durant leading the way with 2.3 million total votes to this point. James leads the Western Conference in votes coming in with just under 2.3 million. No other player outside of the top-3 has yet to clear the 2-million votes mark.

Rounding out the fan’s choice for Eastern Conference starters are Giannis Antetokounmpo, Joel Embiid, Bradley Beal, and Kyrie Irving. Meanwhile Curry and Durant would be joined by Nikola Jokic, Kawhi Leonard, and Luka Doncic.
Unfortunately, nota single Toronto Raptors player was able to crack the top-10 of either list.
