The second returns on fan voting were released on Thursday and George is in position to start in the All-Star Game for the first time as a Western Conference player and the first time since 2016 when he was with Indiana.

Derrick Rose is still among the leading backcourt vote-getters in the Western Conference, trailing only Stephen Curry.

While Lonzo moved up from 175,040 votes to an impressive 529,164 votes, he is still ranked eighth among guards in the Western Conference.

Antetokounmpo is second with 2,670,816 and leads an Eastern Conference starting five that now includes Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leader in the Eastern Conference with 2,670,816 votes. Every voter will complete one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.

Fans have until 11:59 p.m. ET on January 21 to get their votes in.

The teams aren't split by conference for the actual game, though.

The fan vote, which opened on Christmas Day, accounts for 50% of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters. The top vote victor in each conference is named the captain of their team, and then they draft players from either conference's all-star starters and reserves list to comprise their team.

Dwyane Wade is also likely to get a farewell All-Star mention, getting close to 1,200,000 votes in his last season in the National Basketball Association.

Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving leads all East guards.

The 2019 NBA All-Star weekend will be February 15-17 in Charlotte. He's having quite the rookie season and deserves to play in the All-Star game because of his star appeal and his play on the court.
