James, Antetokounmpo lead NBA All-Star fan voting

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich jokes that Steven Adams'scares him

Hornets guard Kemba Walker is on the outside of being an All-Star Game starter in Charlotte next month, based on a running tally of fan votes the National Basketball Association announced Thursday.

LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo have expanded their conference leads in the second fan returns of NBA All-Star Voting 2019.

George was fifth in the first fan returns last week but has since passed Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant for third in the voting with 1,859,216 total votes in the latest returns.

Harden's problem for captaincy is that he's now seventh in fan voting, trailing the likes of Derrick Rose, Kevin Durant, Paul George, Steph Curry, and Luka Doncic.

Joining Antetokounmpo atop the Eastern Conference vote are Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving. Current NBA players and a media panel each account for 25% of the vote.

If the NBA All-Star game were to play this weekend, then last year's regular-season MVP and a back-to-back Finals MVP wouldn't even crack the starting lineups.

Rookie forward Luka Doncic continues to be a massive favorite to make the team as a starter as the second-most voted player in the West, surpassing Stephen Curry with 2,220,077 votes. The Houston Rockets' James Harden (1,674,660) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (1,494,382) are still in third and fourth place, respectively.

Fans have until 11:59 p.m. ET on January 21 to get their votes in.

TNT will reveal All-Star Game starters, including the two captains, on Thursday, Jan. 24 during their pregame show.
