Raptors’ Leonard drops to sixth place in National Basketball Association all-star voting

Kevin Durant not among Western Conference starters in fan voting for NBA All-Star Game

Hornets guard Kemba Walker is on the outside of being an All-Star Game starter in Charlotte next month, based on a running tally of fan votes the National Basketball Association announced Thursday.

While George is up to third in the frontcourt, Steven Adams remains sixth in the frontcourt and Russell Westbrook remains at fourth among guards, respectively, trailing James Harden, Derrick Rose and Stephen Curry.

While Lonzo moved up from 175,040 votes to an impressive 529,164 votes, he is still ranked eighth among guards in the Western Conference.

Joining Antetokounmpo atop the Eastern Conference vote are Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25% of the vote.

The fan vote, which opened December 25, accounts for 50 percent of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters. The next leading vote getter is none other than MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, who leads the Eastern Conference with roughly 2.6 million votes.

Voting for fans, players and media will conclude on Monday, Jan. 21 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Captains can choose players for their teams regardless of conference affiliation. 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. Unlike last season, though, the actual selection of the teams will reportedly be televised. Coaches will determine the reserves.

This year's All-Star game will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 17.

The All-Star starters - and captains - will be announced January 24.
