LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo lead the fan voting in their respective conferences and seem to be the favorites to earn All-Star captaincy for this year's draft - although fan votes only count 50 percent with 25 percent to come from both the media and players.
The starting five - which includes three frontcourt and two backcourt positions spots - for the Western Conference are James, Luka Doncic (Dallas Mavericks), Paul George (Oklahoma City Thunder), Stephen Curry (Golden State Warriors) and Derrick Rose (Minnesota Timberwolves).

The top vote-getters from each conference will serve as team captains. The top vote victor in each conference is named the captain of their team, and then they draft players from either conference's all-star starters and reserves list to comprise their team. Reserves will be determined by a vote of National Basketball Association head coaches.
Dwyane Wade is also likely to get a farewell All-Star mention, getting close to 1,200,000 votes in his last season in the National Basketball Association.More news: Video shows bus driver rescue baby alone on freeway overpass
Other totals of note: Vince Carter, 41, is seventh among Eastern Conference frontcourt players, and Lakers guard Lonzo Ball is eighth among Western Conference guards. He's having quite the rookie season and deserves to play in the All-Star game because of his star appeal and his play on the court. Coaches will determine the reserves.More news: Michigan Hires Alabama Assistant As OC, Poaching Him From Maryland
