NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) – The first All-Star voting returns are in, and there aren’t really any surprises at the top. LeBron James is the top vote-getter with 609,336 with Kevin Durant close behind with 607,407. After that is where things start to get weird.
Kobe Bryant, who has played a grand total of two games this season, is third overall with 501,215 votes. Paul George is fourth with 489,335, which puts him ahead of Carmelo Anthony, who of course plays in the league’s biggest and brightest market.
Fans of course vote for the NBA’s All-Star starters using all sorts of different options like their website, Twitter and Facebook.
