Giannis Antetokounmpo Would Pick LeBron James 1st as All-Star Captain

Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons dunks on the Spurs

If the voting holds, there's a strong likelihood that Durant or Curry will end up as one of the captains for the game, which will increase the pressure on a player who is forced to draft his remaining 11 teammates.

It should be noted that while Antetokounmpo is the leader in Eastern Conference votes through the first round of voting, there are still two more rounds for James to erase his current 7,336-vote deficit.

He is second in the National Basketball Association in terms of scoring with 29.1 points per game which is only lower to Houston Rockets' James Harden's 32.2 points a night. The first fan returns, released Thursday, have Simmons in fourth among Eastern Conference guards and 50,000 votes behind the Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan for the second starting spot. Those captains will then draft the 2018 All-Star teams from the pool of players who were voted as starters and reserves, making selections without regard for conference affiliation.

In the West, Durant is joined at the top of the frontcourt by two members of the New Orleans Pelicans, Anthony Davis (393,000) and DeMarcus Cousins (356,340). The 14 reserves for the game will be selected by the NBA's head coaches. Indiana's Victor Oladipo (251,886) was third. For the guards, Curry is followed by the Houston Rockets' James Harden (602,040) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (438,469). Draymond Green is now sitting in fourth-place among Western Conference forwards with 325,612 votes, and Klay Thompson is in fourth-place among guards with 359,442 votes.
