  • Giannis wants to pick Le Bron to develop'relationship for free agency

Western Conference teams, was changed in October.

Durant came in third among all National Basketball Association players, behind Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (863,416), and Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James (856,080). Antetokounmpo is averaging 29.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.3 blocks, but is a career 27.6 per cent shooter on threes in his fifth season.

James is second in voting with 856,080 and his former Cavs teammate Kyrie Irving is now in third place with 802,834 votes and leads all guards in the league. The player in each conference with the most votes will be his team's captain, and then gets to select players - from either conference - in a back-and-forth draft until the teams are decided. Fans account for 50 percent of the votes, the other 50 is divided between players and a media panel. The 14 reserves for the game will be selected by the NBA's head coaches. So each team's captain must still pick players who would be All-Stars under the old format, but there are no longer conference restrictions. New York Knicks power forward Kristaps Porzingis is just behind in fourth. Irving and Toronto's DeMar DeRozan (259,368) were the top two guards.

A Series of Unfortunate Events Will Return in March
Perhaps, Netflix is hoping to keep this quiet, as it's hardly a hugely exciting look at the new season. In the teaser, we get a sneak peek at the ten episodes that will make up the show's second season.

In the Western Conference, Durant, New Orleans' Anthony Davis (393,000) and teammate DeMarcus Cousins (356,340) were the top three frontcourt players.

Curry and MVP favorite James Harden are the top two guards with Russell Westbrook in third. Those two players will serve as captains for the 67th All-Star Game, which will be played February 18 in Los Angeles.

There are a bunch of different ways to vote for the All-Star reps, and the fan portion of the voting is open until January 15.
