NBA All-Star Voting Returns Released: Giannis Antetokounmpo Leads All

  • Giannis wants to pick Le Bron to develop'relationship for free agency

Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leading vote-getter among all players, holding a 7,336 vote lead over James, who has the second-most votes. The captains will first choose from the pool of starters, which are selected by a combination of fan balloting, player votes and media selections.

While the Greek Freak and King James are competitors in the Eastern Conference, Antetokounmpo understands the potential value of being in the Cleveland Cavalier star's good graces. Stephen Curry is next with 735,115 votes.

Under a new All-Star Game format that replaces the traditional matchup between the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference, the team rosters will be chosen by two captains from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves. Fans will account for 50 percent, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each. Behind Antetokounmpo and James are two more of the post-post-James generation-the 76ers' charismatic center Joel Embiid and Kristaps Porzingis of the Knicks.

In the Western Conference, Durant, New Orleans' Anthony Davis (393,000) and teammate DeMarcus Cousins (356,340) were the top three frontcourt players. For the guards, Curry is followed by the Houston Rockets' James Harden (602,040) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (438,469).

Survivors of devastating Bronx fire allowed to return to building
The displaced residents were placed on an MTA bus so they could keep warm while firefighters continued battling the blaze. The multi-storey building is situated on the corner of the Commonwealth and Bronx River avenues in Van Nest.

According the press release via NBA.com, two captains, one from each conference, will be determined based upon who receives the most fan votes in his conference.

Watching LeBron and Giannis on the same team in a meaningless all-star game is fun, but the thought of them on the same National Basketball Association team is terrifying.

There are a bunch of different ways to vote for the All-Star reps, and the fan portion of the voting is open until January 15.
