LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo lead NBA All-Star fan voting

Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks continue to lead NBA All-Star voting in latest fan ballot returns released Wednesday.

Complete details of the second 2019 NBA All-Star Game fan voting update below. LeBron still leads all vote-getters with almost 2.8 million votes, while the Greek Freak leads the Eastern Conference with 2.67 million, slightly ahead of Kyrie Irving.

With voting still underway, George is part of a Western Conference starting five led by James and also featuring Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose and Durant's Golden State Warriors teammate Stephen Curry. In fact, Doncic has now received more votes out West than Curry, and has the fourth most votes overall. Voting among current players counts 25 percent and votes from media covering the National Basketball Association counts the other 25 percent.

If the NBA All-Star game were to play this weekend, then last year's regular-season MVP and a back-to-back Finals MVP wouldn't even crack the starting lineups.

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

After the fan voting has closed, the league will also provide an All-Star poll for players to fill out, as well as for select credentialed media. The top vote victor in each conference is named the captain of their team, and then they draft players from either conference's all-star starters and reserves list to comprise their team. Coaches will determine the reserves.
