The NBA released its first update on fan voting for the 2019 All-Star Game in Charlotte - and millions of fans have combined to make some very curious choices.

Whether James remains well ahead of the pack remains to be seen, but he undoubtedly will be selected to a 15th career All-Star Game.

Other top vote-getters in the Western Conference include Dallas Mavericks rookie Luka Doncic, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Derrick Rose and Golden State Warriors teammates Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. They will draft rosters from the players who are named as starters and reserves, regardless of conference affiliation.

The fan voting accounts for 50 percent of the final determination of the 10 All-Star starters, with voting by current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each accounting for 25 percent. The fan vote counts for 50 per cent of this, with three frontcourt players and two guards from each conference going into a pool two captains - the two players with the most votes - draft a team from. After that, the league's coaching staffs will fill out the game's reserves. The Pelicans' Anthony Davis (605,417) and the Oklahoma City Thunder's Paul George (580,055) finish up the group. Unlike past year, the All-Star draft WILL be televised this season although the draft date has not yet been announced.

Wade, who is averaging 14.1 points on 41.2 percent shooting off the Heat's bench this season, last appeared in the All-Star Game in 2016. Voting for fans, players and media concludes Monday, Jan. 21 at 8:59 p.m. PT. The team captains will then draft their team's bench from the reserve players selected by the National Basketball Association coaches. Like Ball, Kyle Kuzma came in eighth on the forwards list in the Western Conference. The All Star starters, and captains, will be announced January 24 on TNT.
