Kobe Bryant Continues To Lead Voting In Latest All-Star Returns

8317045The third All-Star ballot returns are here. So far, it’s been what’s expected.

As you people probably know by now, there are no longer “centers” in the All-Star voting this year. With the traditional center becoming more and more scarce in the league, the NBA has decided to categorize the voting to just “frontcourt” and “backcourt.” The backcourt is pretty much the same as it’s been but the frontcourt voting means people can vote for whichever three frontcourt players they want (it could be the traditional two forwards and one center or all three forwards, etc.). Also, people can now vote on Twitter if they wish (first and last name of player needed and the hashtag #NBABALLOT).

According to the returns, the starters for now as follows: for the East, we have LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett, Dwyane Wade, and Rajon Rondo. For the West, we have Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant, and Chris Paul.

Kobe has a slight edge over LeBron James as the leading vote-getter. Kevin Durant is a close third behind both of them.

As far as Jeremy Lin goes? He’s less than 50,000 votes away from Chris Paul as the second guard. Coincidentally enough, the All-Star game will be in Houston on February 17, 2013.

The balloting will conclude on January 14th and the starters will be announced live on TNT on January 17th.
