A week after releasing the initial returns, the National Basketball Association has revealed the latest round of All-Star balloting results, and James Harden and Chris Paul are holding steady in the top 10 among Western Conference guards.

James and Curry lead the latest fan voting which accounts for 50 percent of the ballot to determine the 10 starters for the All-Star Game on February 18 at the Staples Center.

In the first returns which were released six days ago, Milwaukee Bucks small forward Giannis Antetokounmpo was the overall leader in votes with 863,416. Toronto's DeMar DeRozan is second among East guards with 537,168 votes and Philadelphia rookie Ben Simmons is third with 397,942.

Curry sits atop the Western Conference with 1,369,658 votes after passing Warriors teammate Kevin Durant, who now has 1,326,059 votes.

Immediately behind Curry in the West guard category are Houston's James Harden (978,540) and reigning NBA MVP Russell Westbrook (791,332) of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Among the frontcourt players, Durant leads with 1,326,759 votes, while New Orleans Pelicans big Anthony Davis comes in second with 664,687.

Previously, players voted to the All-Star roster simply played in a conference matchup, but a new All-Star format has two team captains from a list of players and have them either start or be alternates. I think George will surpass Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins because of people liking him more than they like those two.

Coaches will then choose the reserves and the two top vote-getters from each conference get to pick their teammates from the pool.

The All-Star starters will be announced in one week, on January 18 on TNT.
