LeBron James was first to be announced and will be one of the two captains, beating competition from Giannis Antetokounmpo as the leading vote taker from the Eastern Conference.

Fans (50 percent), media (25 percent) and players (25 percent) voted on the starters.

And of all the players who could receive the honor, no one deserves it more than Embiid.

The Daily News voted for Embiid, who is averaging 23.8 points and 10.8 rebounds while shooting 51 percent for the Sixers (20-20). He has stressed making the playoffs is his main goal. "So if I'm an All-Star starter, that'd be great". But I feel like I have the resume to be an all-star. But tonight my focus is about beating a Celtics team that's 3-0 against us. Six votes behind Kristaps Porzingis, who finished third.

Perhaps it will be Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo , whom James came from behind to edge with 2.6 million votes. This could also potentially mean that Curry and James will be shaping the outlook of the All-Star game rosters.

Porzingis will likely be voted in as a reserve by the head coaches. His averages of points, rebounds and blocks rank him 13th, seventh and fifth in the National Basketball Association, respectively.

"I think both of them are All-Stars in their own right", Brett Brown said of Embiid and Simmons. Simply put, when Embiid doesn't play, the 76ers look like a different team and struggle to win, and if that's not the sign of a true All-Star caliber player, I don't know what is.

The East till take on the Western Conference squad comprised of team captain Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant of the Golden State Warriors, James Harden of the Houston Rockets, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins of the New Orleans Pelicans.

Reserves will be revealed on Tuesday, Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. ET.by TNT's Players Only crew, and the final All-Star Game rosters will be unveiled on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m. ET. on TNT.
