Fan make up 50 percent of the voting for the 10 starters for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina. LeBron still leads all vote-getters with almost 2.8 million votes, while the Greek Freak leads the Eastern Conference with 2.67 million, slightly ahead of Kyrie Irving.

George has 1,859,216 votes, trailing only the Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James (2,779,812) and Dallas' Luca Doncic (2,220,077) among Western Conference frontcourt players.

Derrick Rose of the Minnesota Timberwolves remains a strong option with a whisker under 2 million votes, especially considering he is just as popular with the players as he is with the fans.

WWE Superstars who could shockingly sign with AEW
As all of you know by now, Jericho is fully on board with All Elite Wrestling after talks with WWE stalled. An odd choice at first glance, Zack Ryder has been a staple of WWE television for over a decade.

The leading vote getters for the Eastern Conference squad are Antetokounmpo, Kawhi Leonard (Toronto Raptors), Joel Embid (Philadelphia 76ers), Kyrie Irving (Boston Celtics) and Dwyane Wade (Miami Heat). Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25% of the vote. Ball and Kuzma, along with Brandon Ingram, were selected to the Rising Stars Game last season. Players may vote for their teammates or themselves. Unlike last season, though, the actual selection of the teams will reportedly be televised. Voting for fans, players and media concludes Monday, Jan. 21 at 8:59 p.m. PT. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference.

National Basketball Association head coaches will vote for the reserves and also for replacement nominees in case of an injury, which could bring a few other names into consideration down the line. The All Star starters, and captains, will be announced January 24 on TNT.

Complete details of the second 2019 NBA All-Star Game fan voting update below.
