The Miami Heat’s LeBron James has earned the top spot in terms of the amount of votes for this year’s NBA All-Star ballot. In total 1,416,419 fans voted in favor LBJ. The Thunder’s Kevin Durant came in at second with 1,396,294. So the margin was slim and rightfully so as Durant is having an explosive season that has arguably taken him towards the forefront of this season’s MVP talks.
Other notables in the vote in the East include:
Dwyane Wade (929,542)
Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving (860,221).
Paul George (1,211,318)
And the New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony (935,702).
And in the West:
Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin (688,466 votes)
Minnesota Timberwolves’ Kevin Love (661,246).
Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry (1,047,281 votes)
And even an injured Kobe Bryant got 988,884 votes.
The 2014 NBA All-Star Game will be played February 16th in New Orleans.
