Milwaukee's Giannis Antetokounmpo leads NBA All-Star voting

Currently, Milwaukee's Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo, leads all vote getters with more than 863,000 votes.

He is second in the National Basketball Association in terms of scoring with 29.1 points per game which is only lower to Houston Rockets' James Harden's 32.2 points a night. The captains will first choose from the pool of starters, which are selected by a combination of fan balloting, player votes and media selections.

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. The second (LeBron James) and third vote getters (Kyrie Irving) are both in the Eastern Conference, while Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are fourth and fifth, respectively, in total votes so far. Speaking with the media Friday, Antetokounpo revealed he's select James No. 1 overall if he were elected as an All-Star Game captain, and his reasoning makes flawless sense. Behind Antetokounmpo and James are two more of the post-post-James generation-the 76ers' charismatic center Joel Embiid and Kristaps Porzingis of the Knicks. 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.

In the west, Durant and New Orleans Pelicans pair Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins are the top three in the frontcourt. For the guards, Curry is followed by the Houston Rockets' James Harden (602,040) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (438,469).

The next round of fan voting will be announced January 11. Those two players will serve as captains for the 67th All-Star Game, which will be played February 18 in Los Angeles.
