All-Star Game 2022 | Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant still in the lead | NBA

Two weeks after the opening of the votes, and seven days after its first score, the NBA offers its second state of the votes for the All-Star Game 2022, which will take place on February 20, in Ohio.

As it stands, these are Stephen Curry (Warriors) and Kevin During (Nets) who continue to dominate their respective conferences, with James james (Lakers) and Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks) who are just behind, in ambush.

If the votes remained there, it would be Nicholas jokic (nuggets), Ja morant (Grizzlies) and andrew Wiggins (Warriors) best suited to accompany the Curry/James duo in the West, while DeMar FromRozan (Bulls), Joel Embiid (Sixer) and Trae Young (Hawks) would be the best placed to support the Durant / Antetokounmpo duo in the East.

Ja Morant and Andrew Wiggins shake up the predictions

It should also be noted that, compared to last week, Ja Morant and Andrew Wiggins respectively overtook Luka Doncic (Mavericks) and Paul George (Clippers) in the West, while Trae Young overtook James Harden (Nets) in ballast. We also note that Rudy Gobert (Jazz) is still present in the Top 10 of the “frontcourt” of his conference.

As a reminder, the votes close in ten days, on January 22, and two places in the starting five therefore still seem to be at stake in the West, while there seems to be only one left in the West. ‘East.

Like every year, fans can submit their ballot daily, via NBA app and, in addition to voting daily for up to 10 players, on Twitter. Note that it is possible to vote for anyone and that the next inventory of fixtures of this ballot will take place in seven days.

Then, after Jan. 22, NBA players and media will join fans in nominating their own All-Stars. Fans will represent 50% of the vote, while current players and the media panel will weigh 25% each. The replacements will, for their part, be selected by the 30 coaches in the league.
