LeBron James, Lonzo Ball lead Lakers in All-Star voting


LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo lead their conferences in voting after the first return for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

For the last three seasons the NBA's All-Star game has featured at least three members of the Golden State Warriors.

All current NBA players and a panel of basketball media each account for 25 percent of the vote.

To determine the All-Star Game captains and starters, the National Basketball Association weighs the results of fan voting (which accounts for 50 percent of the vote) against votes from current National Basketball Association players (25 percent) and media members (25 percent).

Ellen DeGeneres Wants Kevin Hart to Host the Oscars Still
People Magazine reports the Academy is considering asking Hart back following the controversy. Let me assess, just to sit in the space and really think.

Draymond Green is in ninth place in the frontcourt, while DeMarcus Cousins - who hasn't played a single second this year - is in 10th with almost 93,000 votes.

The All-Star format will be the same as last season. Every voter will complete one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.

After the starters are determined, the reserves are voted on by the coaches. LeBron and Curry were team captains in 2018.

The two team captains will draft rosters from the players voted as starters and reserves, picking players regardless of conference affiliation.

Tottenham win over Cardiff 'important for our confidence' - Mauricio Pochettino
I don't think there should be any chance of an advantage to any of our opponents. "I think they should enforce it". It did not take Spurs too long to get in front when Harry Kane netted in the third minute with a scrappy finish.

Rookie sensation Luka Doncic is ahead of Durant, Anthony Davis, Paul George and other stars among Western Conference forwards.

In the Eastern Conference, Charlotte Hornets guard Kemba Walker and 76ers guard Ben Simmons are third and fourth in the backcourt voting, respectively. It is important to note that fan voting is available through January 21 but, in the grand scheme, a lot of the damage has already been done and there are a few surprises along the way. DeMarcus Cousins, who hasn't played a game since last January, appearing at all! The team captains will then draft their team's bench from the reserve players selected by the National Basketball Association coaches.

This season's All-Star starters will be revealed on January 24. You can expect the All-Star draft to be televised on TNT.
