NBA – Curry and Durant remain at the top of the votes for the All-Star Game


Stephen Curry (Golden State), although pressed by LeBron James (Lakers), and Kevin Durant (Brooklyn) remain at the top of the fan votes for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 20 in Cleveland, according to a second score revealed Thursday by the NBA. After 17 days of voting, Curry, who broke the historic record for the number of three-point baskets in the league before Christmas, is the most popular with 4,463,426 votes collected.

But James, on track to ensure an 18th participation, is very close with 4,386,392 votes and can still overtake him to be named captain of the Western team, since there are nine days left before the closing of the votes.

In the East, this role falls for the time being to Kevin Durant, with 4,088,334 votes, whose mattress is a little thicker in front of Giannis Antetokounmpo, defending champion with Milwaukee (3,808,458). The two captains, thus designated by the fans, will compose their team with the other players selected, whatever the conference from which they come.

Meanwhile in the West, the other popular players are Nikola Jokic (Denver), MVP of last season, Andrew Wiggins (Warriors), the phenomenon Ja Morant, currently irresistible, and Luka Doncic (Dallas). DeMar DeRozan, author of an excellent start to the season with Chicago conference leader Joel Embiid (Sixers) and Trae Young (Atlanta), complete the five virtual major in the East. The fan vote represents 50% of the votes, which will be supplemented by those of the players (25%) and the journalists (25%).
