NBA All-Star voting results for 2014 have Stephen Curry passing up Chris Paul now. These new 2014 NBA All-Star voting results were revealed on Thursday night (Jan. 9), showing a shift in how the fans are doing their ballots this year. According to a report from ESPN, Curry is now about 26,000 votes ahead of Paul in the latest count. It looks like the starting point guard of the Golden State Warriors may now get the nod ahead of the starting point guard of the LA Clippers. Both players are certainly going to make the team, with the only question being which one is voted in as a starter.
The other starting guard in the Western Conference is slated to be Kobe Bryant, but he likely won't even play due to the latest injury that he is trying to recover from. That could lead to the coaching staff putting Paul in the starting lineup right next to Curry after he likely is selected as a reserve for the team. The frontcourt in the West is slated to be Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, and Kevin Durant. The three players are way ahead of the pack, with Durant just 22,000 votes behind LeBron James for the most this season.
James leads all players in the latest 2014 NBA All-Star voting results, drawing 1.076 million in this count. His frontcourt mates will likely be Paul George of the Indiana Pacers and Carmelo Anthony of the New York Knicks. In the new selection structure, the position of center has been taken off and lumped in with the other frontcourt players. It raises an interesting question about who will start at center for the Eastern Conference team. Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers are the leading players at the guard positions in the East.
