LeBron James, Kevin Durant lead NBA All-Star voting after 2nd returns

Stephen Dunn

LeBron James leads all NBA All-Star vote-getters but Kevin Durant isn't far behind.

The second returns of fan votes for the 2014 NBA All-Star game look quite similar to the first. Miami Heat forward LeBron James leads all players with 854,105 votes, but Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder isn't far behind with 850,728 of his own.

Paul George is second to James in the Eastern Conference and would start in the frontcourt with James and the Knicks' Carmelo Anthony if the All-Star game were to tip today. Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade and Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving lead the top vote-getters in the East's backcourt.

The Western Conference has a question mark atop it. Kobe Bryant's 723,031 votes are third across the league and first among the guards despite the Lakers star having played six games between a torn Achilles and a broken bone in his knee. Chris Paul is the second-leading player in the West's backcourt.

Durant, Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin are the top three players who would start for the Western Conference's frontcourt.

The two closest ongoing battles for starting spots are in the West. Griffin leads Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love by just 22,000 votes, and at guard, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is 52,000 behind Los Angeles Clippers guard Chris Paul.

Here's the entire rundown of the NBA All-Star voting results, which won't be finalized until Jan. 20 when the polls close.
