    2019 NBA All-Star voting first returns released

    West:

    Frontcourt: (top 10- most to least votes)

    LeBron James
    Luka Doncic
    Kevin Durant
    Anthony Davis
    Paul George
    Steven Adams
    Nikola Jokic
    Kyle Kuzma
    Draymond Green
    Demarcus Cousins

    Guards: (top 10- most to least votes)

    Steph Curry
    Derrick Rose
    James Harden
    Russell Westbrook
    Klay Thompson
    Damian Lillard
    Demar Derozan
    Lonzo Ball
    Devin Booker
    Chris Paul

    East:

    Frountcourt: (Top 10- most to least votes)

    Giannis Antetokounmpo
    Kawhi Leonard
    Joel Embiid
    Jimmy Butler
    Jayson Tatum
    Blake Griffin
    Vince Carter
    Andre Drummond
    Gordon Hayward
    Al Horford

    Guards: (Top 10- most to least votes)

    Kyrie Irving
    Dwyane Wade
    Kemba Walker
    Ben Simmons
    Victor Oladipo
    Kyle Lowry
    Zach Lavine
    Jeremy Lin
    Bradley Beal
    John Wall


    What do you think? Do you agree or disagree? Snubs? Who's Undeserving?

    IMO players that have no business being on there include anyone on the Celtics that's not named Kyrie Irving, Kuzma, Draymond, Cousins, Devin Booker, CP3, Lonzo, Jimmy Butler, Vince, Dwade, anyone on the Wizards, Lavine, anyone on the Pistons.


    The biggest snub on West is obv. Goebert. But the front court is the West is going to be loaded. Jokic is a shoe in this year, and Davis is guaranteed, so is KD and LeBron. But he's certainly more deserving that Steven Adams (who's been great).

    Biggest snub on the East is obviously Vucevic. He's been the 2nd best Center in the East behind Embiid and easily top this year.

    Rose haha

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Derrick Rose, Dwayne Wade and Vince Carter? Is this the 2019 All-Star game or the 2009 All-Star game lol?

    The best is definitely DeMarcus Cousins being in the top 10 Frontcourt vote getters without playing a single minute.

    Does anyone know if the captains for the previous All-Star (Lebron/Curry) are still allowed to be captains for this upcoming All-Star game? I thought there can't be consecutive captains.

    I wouldn't hate Rose or Doncic getting in. They've both had solid seasons, but they have no business starting over superior players like Harden, Durant, Davis and George.

    In the East, Wade simply should not be in the All-Star game, period. I get that it's his last season, so it's more of a lifetime achievement award, but I'm not a fan of that kind of thinking because it takes spots away from other deserving players. If the NBA wants to honor and recognize guys like Wade and Carter on All-Star weekend, find another way to accomplish that which doesn't take All-Star spots away from clearly superior players.

    I actually think Doncic deserves to be an All-Star. He's been sensational in being able to lead that team. But fan votes only account for 50% of total votes so it's very unlikely he will get enough votes from the other 50% who do vote.

    Rose simply has a lot of fans. Dude has some of the most loyal fans in NBA who stuck by him.

    As for Wade, we are complete opposites on this. It's unfair for the player who gets bumped out of the spot but as a fan, I absolutely enjoyed Kobe being in that 2016 All-Star game. Vince Carter gave up his spot to MJ and that was totally awesome to see MJ there hitting that clutch shot. Wade has meant a lot to the game and it's great for fans to see legendary players such as them one last time in an environment where the best players are all in the game. Besides, who usually gets bumped out? Remember last season when even Dragic got into the All-Star game (due to injuries but still, he got in). No offense but no one wants to see Dragic lol.

    Shows how many people are still sleeping on Jokic. Best player on the best team in the WC and isn't even top 5 in front court for the west.

    To be clear i dont know a better voting method... fans as a fanbase are stupid and bias but players are just as ******** as are coaches. Remember just last year per the players melo was like a top 15 player.

    I think Luka has had a better season than Ben's rookie season thus far. Ben might be a better rebounder and defender (I won't give you passing because I think Ben passes more because he has to due to him not being able to score as well as Luka), but Mavs were expected to be a bottom feeder team and yet, they are near playoff contention while having a rather subpar roster. Ben had Embiid as well so it definitely helps when you're a guy who is essentially looking to pass the ball.
