The NBA announced their second release of NBA All-Star voting returns on Thursday.
The current projected Eastern Conference starters are LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Paul George, Dwyane Wade and Kyrie Irving. None of the players beyond those five are within striking distance of cracking the starting lineup.
In the Western Conference, Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Kobe Bryant and Chris Paul are the projected starters. Kevin Love narrowly trails Blake Griffin for the final frontcourt starting slot, while Stephen Curry is approximately 50,000 votes behind Paul.
