The All-Star Game will be played in Charlotte on February 17.

The second returns of the 2019 NBA All-Star Game voting are in and, to no one's surprise, LeBron James still leads all vote-getters in the NBA. The next leading vote getter is none other than MVP candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, who leads the Eastern Conference with roughly 2.6 million votes.

George was fifth in the first fan returns last week but has since passed Anthony Davis and Kevin Durant for third in the voting with 1,859,216 total votes in the latest returns.

Joining Antetokounmpo atop the Eastern Conference vote are Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard, Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid, Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving.

All current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with every voter completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference.

Last season, Ball was selected to participate in the Rising Stars Challenge and with the lack of blue chipper point guards prospects in last year's draft, there's a very good chance Ball is selected to participate again. Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook remain the third and fourth guards, respectively, in the conference.

The two team captains will draft rosters from the players voted as starters and reserves, picking players regardless of conference affiliation.

The two guards and three front-court players with the best score in each conference will be named NBA All-Star Game starters.
