Curry, James lead fan voting for All-Star game

The NBA released its latest All-Star voting leaderboards Thursday. There are notable movers in both conferences, and there is still one week left for you to vote for your favorite players.

The second returns are in for NBA All-Star voting and Russell Westbrook continues to trail James Harden and Stephen Curry among Western Conference guards, meaning the reigning MVP will likely be coming off the bench in the 2018 All-Star Game next month. Stephen Curry passed Golden State Warriors teammate Kevin Durant in overall voting and would be team captain if votes ended today.

The fan vote makes up 50 percent of the overall vote for the All-Star Game, which is scheduled February 18 in Los Angeles.

Voting for the All-Star game for fans, players and media ends at 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday.

The All-Star starters and the two captains will be announced on January 18, with the National Basketball Association coaches choosing the reserves by January 23. One guard spot and one place in the frontcourt. But I just feel Joel Embiid's greatness on the court and on social media around the country will help him land that spot. Since his return from an ankle injury, Steph Curry has been lighting up the box score which is why I believe he will edge out his teammate Durrant in votes to become captain. However, Durant is still the leader in the Western frontcourt; Curry leads the guards list.

Paul George and Carmelo Anthony, meanwhile, are fifth and seventh among the West's frontcourt players. Warriors' do-it-all forward Draymond Green (616,730) is at third, followed by DeMarcus Cousins (587,835).
