LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo lead their conferences in voting after the first return for the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

He's the first Dallas rookie to win the award more than once in a season since Jay Vincent won it three times in 1981-82. They will draft rosters from the players who are named as starters and reserves, regardless of conference affiliation.

Voting for the All-Star game starters remains open until January 22 (NZ time), with the starters revealed on January 25 (NZ time). However, it's still a sign of how big and powerful Lakers Nation is that the two each are top 10. Every voter will complete one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. James and Stephen Curry were captains for last season's exhibition, the first under the new format.
