LeBron, Curry new leaders in All-Star voting

With the second round of fan returns for the 2018 All-Star voting, LeBron James and Stephen Curry now lead their respective conferences.

In the second wave of fan returns, James polled 1,622,838 votes to edge ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo (1,480,954) in the Eastern Conference and overall. There are notable movers in both conferences, and there is still one week left for you to vote for your favorite players.

Under the new All-Star Game format announced in October, the leading vote-getter in each conference will captain a team that will draft a roster from the pool of All-Stars named to the team as starters and reserves.

As in previous seasons, the starters will be determined by the fan vote as well as a vote among current players and media. Voting will conclude Monday.

In the Western Conference, Durant (1,326,059), New Orleans' Anthony Davis (664,687) and Golden State's Draymond Green (616,730) are the top three frontcourt players. New York Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis is fourth with 640,928 votes.

Curry (1,369,658) and Houston's James Harden (978,540) are the top two guards. The league's coaches will determine the reserve pool and the captains will complete their rosters picking from that group.

The All-Star captains and starters will be announced January 18, with the reserves unveiled five days later. The leading vote-getters will be named captains and will select their teammates for the 67th All-Star Game, which will take place on February 18 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
