The NBA’s annual popularity contest has ended and the prom kings of each coast are…. you guessed it, LeBron James and Steph Curry.
— 2018 NBA All-Star (@NBAAllStar) January 19, 2018
LeBron was the leading vote getter with 2,638,294 votes and Curry was 2nd with 2,379,494.
Here are the remaining pool of fan voted starters that each captain will pick from to fill out their starting lineups:
LeBron is starting his 14th game, one behind Kobe Bryant for the NBA record. There will be two teams with multiple starters, the defending champs with Steph Curry and Kevin Durant and the Pelicans with Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. This is the first start for DeMarcus Cousins and the first appearance for Joel Embiid.
If I were to venture a guess, here are the remaining 7 players in each league that the coaches will vote to fill out each roster:
Karl Anthony Towns
Unfortunately we don’t get to see LeBron and Curry make their picks, but the most interesting aspect of the whole weekend is if LeBron picks rival Kevin Durant first as he should or leave him to join up with Steph Curry yet again.
