Steph Curry leads all Western Conference guards in All Star voting

Lakers News Lonzo Ball stands pat in second All Star voting returns

Derrick Rose is still among the leading backcourt vote-getters in the Western Conference, trailing only Stephen Curry.

Giannis Antetokounmpo, a forward for the Milwaukee Bucks, leads all Eastern Conference players with 2,670,816 votes, second to only James overall in the National Basketball Association.

James leads all players in the most recent totals and Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo is second overall in the fan voting, which closes January 21.

Antetokounmpo is second with 2,670,816 and leads an Eastern Conference starting five that now includes Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. Unlike a year ago, the All-Star draft WILL be televised this season although the draft date has not yet been announced.

Apple Might Debut 3 New iPhones in 2019
Earlier this week we saw the first alleged renders of the upcoming iPhone 11 and today there's a fresh report about it. The iPhone XR in particular, the cheapest of Apple's latest line-up, is thought to have fallen flat with consumers.

After the fan voting has closed, the league will also provide an All-Star poll for players to fill out, as well as for select credentialed media.

The 68th All-Star game will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on February 17 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo lead the fan voting in their respective conferences and seem to be the favorites to earn All-Star captaincy for this year's draft - although fan votes only count 50 percent with 25 percent to come from both the media and players. Captains can choose players for their teams regardless of conference affiliation. He's having quite the rookie season and deserves to play in the All-Star game because of his star appeal and his play on the court. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference.
