LeBron and Steph lead NBA All Star balloting

LEBRON James took over Giannis Antetokounmpo as the top vote-getter as Stephen Curry overtook Golden State Warriors teammate Kevin Durant for the lead in the Western Conference in the second returns of the fan votes for the NBA All-Star Game.

James leapfrogged Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo and now leads him by more than 140,000 votes in the second vote tabulation, released by the National Basketball Association on Thursday. Curry, who has received just under 1.4 million, has a narrow edge on Durant among West players.

The top vote-getter in each conference will serve as a team captain to choose up sides.

As in previous seasons, the starters will be determined by the fan vote as well as a vote among current players and media.

Last month Google scored a win in the lawsuit when a California state judge dismissed class action claims. The suit claims that Google uses "extreme" and "illegal" practices to keep these dudes down.

The fan vote makes up 50 percent of the overall vote for the All-Star Game, which is scheduled February 18 in Los Angeles. Fan voting ends Monday (Tuesday, Manila time). The league's coaches will determine the reserve pool and the captains will complete their rosters picking from that group. The two captains will then draft a team based on the pool of players.

James and Antetokounmpo are two of the five players with more than 1 million total votes thus far. New York's Kristaps Porzingis (640,928) is fourth.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving leads all East guards with 1,370,643 votes, followed by Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan (537,168). Philadelphia's Ben Simmons (397,942) is third. Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (791,332) is third.

The full 2018 All-Star game rosters will be revealed on January 25.
