This year's All-Star game will be held in Charlotte, North Carolina on February 17. 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. Doncic moved up to No. 2 in the Western Conference, surpassing Rose and Curry.

Dallas Mavericks rookie sensation Luka Doncic has also maintained his position with the second-most All-Star votes of all Western Conference frontcourt players.

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard remains in second place among Eastern Conference forwards after the second return of National Basketball Association all-star voting. Current NBA players and a panel of basketball media each account for 25% of the remaining vote.

All current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with every voter completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Ball and Kuzma, along with Brandon Ingram, were selected to the Rising Stars Game last season.

Dwyane Wade is also likely to get a farewell All-Star mention, getting close to 1,200,000 votes in his last season in the National Basketball Association.

The game will follow last year's format, with the two team captains drafting rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves and making their picks regardless of conference affiliation. Coaches will determine the reserves.

Voting concludes on January 21.

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

Walker is third among East guards with 858,798 votes, ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons with 695,032.

Details for the All-Star draft have yet to be announced.
