Bucks' Antetokounmpo leads all players in 2018 NBA All-Star voting

Antetokounmpo is ahead of the Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James by almost 7,500 votes and leads third-place Kyrie Irving by more than 50,000 votes in the first vote tabulation, released by the National Basketball Association on Thursday.

Golden State's Steph Curry trails at the second spot with 735,115 votes, while Harden is below the teammates with 602,040 votes.

The voting reflects a remarkable start to the season for the 23-year-old Antetokounmpo.

His performances this season have seen him enter the MVP conversation as he's averaging an incredible 29.1 points, 10.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.3 blocks per game. Fans will account for 50 percent, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each. The leading vote-receiver from each conference will be given rights to choose his team, but starters will be pre-determined by the results.

The players will be sorted by their conference and position (guards and frontcourt players), with the two top guards and three top frontcourt players named as starters.

Those players will be selected in a draft by the two leading vote-getters, who will be appointed captains for the respective sides.

Durant has a comfortable lead over every other frontcourt player in the Western Conference, while Curry is holding off James Harden of the Houston Rockets for the most votes received by a guard. Through 12 days of voting, Embiid has about 60,000 votes on Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis and more than 200,000 on Cavs power forward Kevin Love.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving is the runaway leader with 802,834 votes, but with Australia's assistance Simmons can catch Toronto's DeMar DeRozan (259,368) and Indiana's Victor Oladipo (210,085).

In the west, Durant and New Orleans Pelicans pair Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are the top three in the frontcourt. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (438,469) was third.

The 2018 NBA All-Star game takes place at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday February 18.

The starters, including the two captains, will be announced January 18 on TNT.

This year's NBA All-Star voting, though, has shown that the generation beyond that may be foremost in the minds of fans.
