The first results of the Eastern Conference All-Star voting were released Friday (AEDT) with Giannis Antetokounmpo sitting just ahead of LeBron James, and the Bucks star already knows who he would draft first to be on his team.
It should be noted that while Antetokounmpo is the leader in Eastern Conference votes through the first round of voting, there are still two more rounds for James to erase his current 7,336-vote deficit.
Giannis, 23, is looking for his second ever All-Star appearance while LeBron is gunning for his 14th straight.
Golden State Warriors duo Kevin Durant (767,402) and Stephen Curry (735,115) are fourth and fifth on the list, respectively, and have so far received the highest vote totals among Western Conference players.
There are a bunch of different ways to vote for the All-Star reps, and the fan portion of the voting is open until January 15.
Check out the breakdown below.
No other Bucks will make the All-Star team. Most notably, it won't be East vs. The captains will be the All-Star starters from each conference who receive the most fan votes in respective conferences.
Hoping to spice up the All-Star Game, the National Basketball Association has implemented a unique format for this year's contest in which the vote victor in each conference will pick teams from a selected pool of reserves, pick-up style.
12 players from each conference will be chosen for the All-Star spots.
The starters will be determined by the voting system which, like last season, sees the fans get 50 percent and players and media share 25 percent each.
There will be three frontcourt players and two guards chosen for each starting lineup, meaning Embiid now has a decent chance of starting in the game. "Specific details about the draft will be announced at a later date".
