Published Add your comment

Kobe Bryant is now 30 games through his final season in the NBA, and it isn't going quite as he would have liked.

The LA Lakers find themselves rooted to the bottom of the Western Conference with a solitary five wins, while Bryant himself is struggling to find his shot - currently boasting a .345 field goal percentage.

However, it seems that NBA fans the World over are able to overlook all of that, as Kobe currently leads the entire league in All-Star voting.

After the first returns of 2016 NBA All-Star voting came in, the Lakers star is leaving every other star in the league in his dust. 

Bryant – who has finally managed to get himself into something resembling a run of form – leads the way with a whopping 719,235 votes.

Where's Stephen Curry I hear you cry? Well, the Golden State star and MVP favorite is lagging behind in second with 510,202.

To put it in perspective of how much Kobe is truly dominating, he currently has more than double the amount of votes as LeBron James, who has 357,937 in 3rd place. He also has over 100,000 more votes than the OKC Thunder duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined.

The Black Mamba revealed that he was more than a little surprised he had such a wide lead.

"Listen, I was making a little coffee run this morning, got some gas and decided to just go on Instagram and peruse," he said, "and [I] saw the damn votes, and I was like, 'What the hell?' Shocked doesn't do it justice."

We'll have to wait and see if Kobe keeps this lead, but it seems that the NBA legend will be getting a well-deserved send-off.
