Chris Paul, James Harden among leaders in latest All-Star voting returns

Under a new All-Star game format, the player with the maximum votes in each conference will be the captains of their respective conference teams and will be choosing his team from a pool of players who were voted in as starters and reserves. "I'd rather somebody else do it".

"I don't feel 33", he said.

In the Western Conference, Curry takes the top spot among all guards with 1,369,658 votes.

"Why not?" Curry said.

"The game will let you know when it's over with". That meant you were something on the court back in the day.

As you can see in the clip above, he also added that he'd know when the right time to "retire" was, just like he knew the right time to pop the question to his wife. "We'll see, we'll see, but, right now I feel great". "I've got a 13-year-old son now (LeBron Jr.)". Fans will account for 50 percent of the vote, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each. Fan voting ends Monday (Tuesday, Manila time).

Players will be sorted by conference and position (guards and frontcourt players), and the two top guards and three top frontcourt players will be named starters. National Basketball Association head coaches will select the reserves.

In the second wave of fan returns, James polled 1,622,838 votes to edge ahead of the Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo (1,480,954) in the Eastern Conference and overall. New York Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis is fourth with 640,928 votes. Boston's Kyrie Irving (1,370,643) and Toronto's DeMar DeRozan (537,168) are the top two guards, while Philadelphia's Ben Simmons (397,942) is third.

One through four are Golden State's Kevin Durant, New Orleans' Anthony Davis, Golden State's Draymond Green and New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins. Houston Rockets' James Harden (978,540) and Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook (791,332) are second and third, respectively. Thomas has just returned from injury, Wade is averaging his lowest points ever as an National Basketball Association player, and Anthony hasn't meshed well with his Oklahoma City Thunder teammates.

The All-Star captains and starters will be announced January 18, with the reserves unveiled five days later.
