NBA All-Star Voting: LeBron James Takes Overall Lead; Lakers Teammate Anthony Davis not Far Behind

Los Angeles Lakers’ LeBron James surpassed Dallas Mavericks’ Luka Donic to lead the NBA after the second fan returns of the NBA All-Star voting. After old Doncic finished the first round with the most number of votes, James now has 82,001 votes more than the 20-year old.

LeBron’s teammate Anthony Davis and reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo are the only other players to have got over 3,00,000 votes. While Giannis leads the Eastern Conference in the number of votes, Davis is behind James in the frontcourt player in the Western Conference.

The Los Angeles Lakers duo is followed by the Los Angeles Clippers duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George in the Western Conference frontcourt players.

Injured stars Kyrie Irving and Stephen Curry also found a place in their respective Conference guards list. While Irving is expected to be fit soon, Curry does not look like being fit enough at the time of the All-Stars.
