Durant surprisingly trails Doncic in NBA All-Star voting

Durant surprisingly trails Doncic in NBA All-Star voting

James, a 14-time NBA All-Star and three-time NBA All-Star Most Valuable Player, was followed in the West front line by Slovenian 19-year-old swingman Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks on 679,839 and Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant with 659,968.

Currently, New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George are fourth and fifth, respectively, among Western Conference frontcourt players.

The fan vote, which opened December 25, accounts for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters.

Whether James remains well ahead of the pack remains to be seen, but he undoubtedly will be selected to a 15th career All-Star Game. James and Stephen Curry were captains for last season's exhibition, the first under the new format.

Flu season now in full effect
Crystal White Shield knows the toll flu can take. "So it can protect them against that later bump if we do have it this year". This season started a bit more slowly and it's not picking up as fast as previous year , Brammer said.

Wade is the only Heat player among the top 10 in the voting among guards or frontcourt players. Every voter will complete one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25% of the vote. Unlike a year ago, the All-Star draft WILL be televised this season although the draft date has not yet been announced. Voting for fans, players and media concludes Monday, Jan. 21 at 8:59 p.m. PT. DeMarcus Cousins, who hasn't played a game since last January, appearing at all!

Draymond Green checks in at nine on the list of Western Conference frontcourt players. The reserves, as selected by the head coaches, will be announced January 31 on TNT. The All-Star starters - and captains - will be announced January 24.

For the second-straight year, the each conference's leading vote-getter will be selected as their conference's team captain. You can expect the All-Star draft to be televised on TNT.
