Two NBA players thought Avdia should start in the starting five in the celebratory game, but that's nothing compared to the other names that received votes. And also: the most popular votes

The traditional All-Star Game will be held this year (February 19) in Salt Lake City.

The top fives have already been decided, while the teams themselves will be decided by the captains - the two leading vote getters LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo - on game day.

The pair of big stars will be joined by Kevin Durant (if healthy), Jayson Tatum, Donovan Mitchell, Kyrie Irving, Nikola Jokic, Zion Williamson, Stephen Curry and Luka Doncic, who will start in the fives.

The replacements have not yet been determined.



Let's remember: as every year, the All-Star elections were a combination of the fans' votes (50%), the players' votes (25%) and the journalists' votes (25%).

Danny Avdia, for example, received two votes from players in the league, and 13,521 votes from fans, which put him 51st among the front line players in the East, but he is not the most outrageous name that received votes in the league.

Before we get to them, let's start with the most popular names by NBA players:



Kyrie wants to play with LeBron again, Doncic


At his best: 25 points for Danny Abadia in Washington victory


Luka Doncic returned with 53 points, Golden State beat OKC

Which two players voted for him?
