NBA: LeBron James still tops All-Star Game votes


LeBron James (Lakers), close to becoming the leading scorer in NBA history, remains at the top of fan votes for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 19 in Salt Lake City, Utah, according to a second score revealed Thursday.

Three weeks after the opening of the vote, "King James" is the most popular with 4,825,229 votes collected.

Kevin Durant, leading in the resurrection of the Brooklyn Nets after a disastrous start to the season, but who has just sprained his right knee, follows with 4,509,238 votes.

Which makes them, for the time being, the captains of their respective conferences, West for the first, East for the second.

James, failing for the moment to hope to play the leading roles for the play-offs, LA remaining stuck in 12th place, sees inexorably approaching the most coveted record in the League, that of best scorer in the story.

Unless prevented, at his own pace - he averages 29.1 points this season - he should overtake the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387 pts),

In the East, the board has changed slightly, since Jayson Tatum (Boston) is ahead of Joel Embiid (Philadelphia) for the third inside position, alongside Durant and Antetokounmpo.

Kyrie Irving (Brooklyn) and Donovan Mitchell (Cleveland) always completing the rank of holders.

The fan vote represents 50% of the votes, the players 25% and the journalists 25%.
