Show just started. I don't see any surprises happening honestly. It should be ...

Kobe Bryant
Chris Paul
Kevin Durant
Blake Griffin
Dwight Howard

Dwyane Wade
Rajon Rondo
LeBron James
Carmelo Anthony
Kevin Garnett or Chris Bosh


Can Kobe Bryant hold off LeBron James to once again be the leading vote-getter?

Will Jeremy Lin make a late finishing push to supplant MVP candidate Chris Paul in the Western Conference?
Those are the two biggest questions left to answer when the results of fan balloting to choose the starting lineups for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game are announced tonight on TNT (7 p.m. ET).

Bryant, who leads the league in scoring, had an advantage of 26,152 votes over James in the overall race in the most recent round of results released on Jan. 3. Paul was holding down the second spot in the West backcourt with a lead of 46,269 votes over Lin. The top three in the West frontcourt voting are: Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin.

James was leading everyone in the Eastern Conference, followed by frontcourt partners Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Garnett. The top two backcourt vote-getters were Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo.

The howls of protest would likely be loudest if Lin, getting a strong wave of support from Asia, were to beat out Paul, who has the Clippers challenging Oklahoma City for the best record in the NBA.

But others who could make a legitimate case that they should be in the starting lineups based on their performances so far this season are Knicks center Tyson Chander in the East frontcourt and Spurs’ veteran Tim Duncan in the West frontcourt.

So the East starters are ...

Backcourt:
Rajon Rondo, Dwyane Wade,
Frontcourt:
LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett.

Garnett and Melo should be interesting. :laughing:

I'll have to agree with Kenny and Charles who both said Tyson Chandler deserved that frontcourt spot over Garnett.

West starters ...

Backcourt:
Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul
Froncourt:
Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin

So Kenny, Charles and Shaq agreed Dwight should not be starting (named Randolph, Gasol). Charles actually said that Tim Duncan is having a better year. They conveniently ignore that Blake Griffin's numbers are down across the board and he has no business being in there more than Dwight does, but it's the Clippers and they're winning so it gets a pass.

Also Kobe beat out LeBron by 7k for the most votes. Suck it, Bronny.
