LeBron James and Durant lead NBA All-Star voting

Published Add your comment

Miami Heat superstar LeBron James is leading the way in the voting for the 2014 NBA All-Star game, with Oklahoma City Thunder counterpart Kevin Durant running close behind.

In an official release featured on, it was revealed that, with the first returns of the NBA All-Star balloting in, reigning MVP James tops the voting with 609,336 with Durant second overall with 607,407.

Behind James in the Eastern Conference voting is Indiana Pacers small forward Paul George with 489,335, while the nearest player to Durant in the Western Conference race is, somewhat unsurprisingly given his standing and reputation, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant with 501,215 votes to his name at this early juncture.

The All-Star game traditionally caps off festivities at the always entertaining All-Star weekend, with 2014's clash in New Orleans the 63rd exciting instalment.

In this year's game in Houston, the West edged out their Eastern foes 143-138. On that particular occasion, New York Knicks sharpshooter Carmelo Anthony led the East with 26 points while Durant dropped 30.

The All-Star ballot comes to a close on January 20, with the starters for the game being announced three days later.
