160205054The NBA has released their first batch of returns on the fan vote for the All-Star game and Kobe Bryant is second among the Western Conference in total votes and first among back court players. The following is the early tally:

Western Conference Backcourt Votes
1. Kobe Bryant – 501,215
2. Chris Paul – 393,313
3. Stephen Curry – 327,449
4. Jeremy Lin – 240,404
5. James Harden – 198,667

Western Conference Frontcourt Votes
1. Kevin Durant – 607,407
2. Dwight Howard – 295,120
3. Blake Griffin – 292,925
4. Kevin Love – 275,506
5. Tim Duncan – 217,271

Eastern Conference Backcourt Votes
1. Dwyane Wade – 396,279
2. Kyrie Irving – 365,712
3. Derrick Rose – 272,410
4. John Wall – 124,851
5. Ray Allen – 99,464

Eastern Conference Frontcourt Votes
1. LeBron James – 609,336
2. Paul George – 489,335
3. Carmelo Anthony – 424,211
4. Roy Hibbert – 208,369
5. Chris Bosh – 156,364

As no surprise to anyone, LeBron James is leading in total votes for the All Star game with Kevin Durant second among vote getters. Bryant is a surprise to some as he’s only played in two games. Bryant has been able to tally votes despite being injured as his name has been on the ballot since voting first opened. There likely won’t be much shifting among the top vote getters, but it looks like there could be an outside chance for either Steph Curry to catch Chris Paul or Kevin Love to catch Blake Griffin to earn starting spots in the Western Conference.

Pau Gasol is seventh among Western Conference frontcourt players while Steve Nash is ninth among backcourt players.

    one of these guys will be a laker in 16 or 17 :)

    official: Steve Blake out for 6 weeks… that’s what I was talking about… We have seen that coming miles away. I warn most of you that you take a lot of risk not finding a true pg sub to reduce Blake’s minutes. Their health is at stake We knew he had some problem with his elbow and yet he played 40mpg. Everybody said “it’s going to be fine just tweak here and there with the players we already have”. BS guys! BS
    now I hope this nonsense crap will stop asap. stop tweaking, stop half measures. we can’t afford to loose any guys for long period like that.
    What know Kobe will play 35mpg?

      This is another indication of the negligence of the medical staff. This should have been diagnosed from the get-go. Reducing Blake’s minutes isn’t the issue. It’s figuring out what’s wrong to begin with. They did the same with Nash and Blake last season. It took them forever to figure out what was going on with Nash’s leg, and Blake was out for a long time before they decided he needed surgery. They need to MRI these injuries quicker before more damage is done. The point is the failure to recognize what you’re dealing with quicker. Maybe Gary Vitti needs some help. The FO obviously doesn’t want to bring anyone in right now, but they may be forced to do something if Nash or Farmar aren’t able to come back soon.

      • Zimmeredge

        no they are so blind they wanna go with a three guys rotation on the backcourt, no pg, half kobe bryant playing more than he should. and two bench players.
        i just don’t get it. no move. patience and calm.

        • hookedonnews

          D’Antoni has said that they are on the lookout for a PG, but bringing someone new in is just going to disrupt the chemistry further. Farmar should be back in a couple of weeks and hopefully Nash will be back soon. Kobe is able to play the point until one of them comes back. Henry has played PG in the past. It’s not ideal, but I guess we’ll just have to see how it works out.

          • Zimmeredge

            i’m really worried because the next trip will be a killer for our guys… believe me that if we go through this w/out another guy injured it would we a miracle.

            and right now…. i can’t imagine the lakers winning a basketball game within the 15 next games. our schedule is really complicated and w/out our best pg and our bench mob leader we won’t be as much as a threat for any defense.

          • hookedonnews

            I agree that this road trip will be tough.This hasn’t been a great road team even with their best players. It’s a long season though. They got off to a horrible start last season and still managed to make the playoffs. Hopefully everybody will be back soon.

  • Ted

    Tha fact that Pau Gasol got votes is a joke.

    • hookedonnews

      I think most fans vote for the players from their teams. I would be voting for Kobe even if he hadn’t come back yet. It’s just a matter of respect.

    • Rusty Morris

      I would have Pau before Dwight Coward and Blake Griffin. D’antoni is horrible at managing his players and playing to their talents.

  • Joseph Apohen

    Westbrook not in the backcourt in the all star votes? Are you kidding me?

    • hookedonnews

      What about all the votes Jeremy Lin is getting? The Houston fans did the same thing last season. They are voting in large numbers. Lakers fans should be doing the same. When fans vote it basically boils down to a popularity contest. Westbrook isn’t that popular, I guess.

      • Paytc

        Interesting point. Yeah we better make sure Kobe is there to block a few more of LJ”s shots. And Kobe should be #1. Who is a bigger draw in the west? And who is the best in the west? Go Kobe ! Go Lakers !

  • Jokobe

    Sorry PG. As long as Kobe still in league, you aint getting mah vote.

    • cyfo

      Yeah, well said. .

  • shek

    Lin in the all star game lets go!!

  • KB24

    Jeremy Lin is only slightly better than a scrub. What a joke. Westbrook being disrespected by the international fans…!
