Giannis Antetokounmpo, LeBron James lead in 2nd fan returns of NBA All-Star Voting


In the latest update of NBA All-Star Voting presented by AT&T, it is evident that Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo are still leading the Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively.
James continues to dominate the West frontcourt, while Antetokounmpo maintains his stronghold on the East frontcourt. Additionally, Luka Dončić from the Dallas Mavericks remains a top performer in the West guard position, while Tyrese Haliburton from the Indiana Pacers preserves his lead in the East guard category. Notably, Trae Young from the Atlanta Hawks has progressed into the second spot among East guards.
It is essential to note that fans play a significant role in determining the 2024 NBA All-Star Game starters, as they contribute 50% of the total vote. NBA players and a media panel each hold a 25% share in the selection process.
Below, we present the top 10 vote-getters in each position group based on the second fan returns.

In the selection process for the NBA All-Star Game starters, both NBA players and media professionals will participate alongside fans. The fan vote will hold a significant weight of 50 percent, with the remaining 50 percent divided equally between current players and a media panel. Players and media members will have the opportunity to submit one ballot each.
To keep fans updated, the progress of fan voting will be shared on the first three Thursdays in January, specifically on Jan. 4, 11, and 18. On Thursday, Jan. 25, TNT's NBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax will disclose the NBA All-Star Game starters. Furthermore, TNT will announce the reserves, as chosen by NBA head coaches, on Thursday, Feb. 1, again during TNT's NBA Tip-Off.

Once all votes have been counted, players in each conference will be ranked in their respective positions (guard and frontcourt) within three voting groups – fan votes, player votes, and media votes. A player's overall score will be determined by averaging their weighted ranking from each of these voting categories. The two top-ranked guards and three top-ranked frontcourt players in each conference will earn the title of NBA All-Star Game starters. In the event of a tie within a position group, fan voting will be used as the determining factor.
