Durant leads NBA All-Star vote, Curry first among guards

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The 23-year-old is second in the league behind LeBron James (27) with 17 performances of at least 20 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. He is now on pace to join Hall-of-Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as only the second player in Bucks' history to average at least 29.0 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 4.5 assists per contest in the regular season. The Bucks" "Greek Freak', who ranks second in the National Basketball Association behind Harden in points-per-game, leads James by 7,336 votes among frontcourt players. Through 12 days of voting, Embiid has about 60,000 votes on Knicks big man Kristaps Porzingis and more than 200,000 on Cavs power forward Kevin Love.

In the Eastern Conference guards voting, Simmons (210,085) is fourth behind Kyrie Irving (802,834), DeMar DeRozan (259,368) and Victor Oladipo (251,886).

The NBA released the vote totals for the first 12 days of balloting for the All-Star Game and it should come as no surprise that a player with All-Star experience is at the top of the heap.

Tesla Misses Model 3 Delivery Estimates for Q4
Tesla said it delivered 101,312 Model S and Model X vehicles in 2017, a 33 percent increase from the year before. Looking ahead, Munster believes that Tesla may be able to boost Model 3 production in 2018 to 150,000 units.

Under a new format meant to help balance the popular vote against fielding players who deserve to start, fans are set to make up half of the vote, and players and about 75 media members will account for the other half.

There will be three frontcourt players and two guards chosen for each starting lineup, meaning Embiid now has a decent chance of starting in the game.

The voting can be done on Twitter with the hashtag #NBAVote. The reserves will be chosen by head coaches.

Also there is the Auto Cord feature, allowing the cable to quickly wind up so that it makes moving the projector even easier. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of the sound quality given the two puny 7W speakers that the setup accommodates.

But Simmons' sister Olivia took to Twitter on Wednesday in an effort to boost his chances of becoming the first Australian-raised National Basketball Association player to make an all-star game. Instead, the two starters who receives the most votes in each conference will pick team rosters from a pool of players voted as starters and reserves.

This is just the first of three voting returns prior to the 2018 All-Star Game that will take place at the Staples Center.
