Paul George supplants Kevin Durant in latest All-Star fan voting totals

Westbrook says Adams is'definitely worthy of being an All-Star

Giannis Antetokounmpo, a forward for the Milwaukee Bucks, leads all Eastern Conference players with 2,670,816 votes, second to only James overall in the National Basketball Association.

The starting five - which includes three frontcourt and two backcourt positions spots - for the Western Conference are James, Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks), Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) and Derrick Rose (Minnesota Timberwolves).

Fan votes are worth only 50 per cent in determining the all-star game's starters, with the other half coming down to a combination of player and media vote.

Current NBA players account for 25 percent of the vote; so does a media panel. Ball and Kuzma, along with Brandon Ingram, were selected to the Rising Stars Game last season.

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.

While Lonzo moved up from 175,040 votes to an impressive 529,164 votes, he is still ranked eighth among guards in the Western Conference. Reserves will be determined by a vote of National Basketball Association head coaches. Unlike last season, though, the actual selection of the teams will reportedly be televised.

Durant and New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis are fourth and fifth, respectively, among Western Conference frontcourt players. All-Star reserves, decided by a vote of the league's head coaches, will be announced January 31.

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