2013 NBA All-Star voting: LeBron leading the way in votes

Mike Ehrmann

LeBron James leads all other players in All-Star votes.

To the surprise of probably no one, reigning MVP/NBA champion LeBron James leads all players after the first round of NBA All-Star voting, the league announced Thursday.

The Miami Heat forward is joined by teammate Dwyane Wade at the top of their positions, with James leading all frontcourt players and Wade pacing the rest of the backcourt in the Eastern Conference. James (641,348 votes) is leading New York forward Carmelo Anthony and Boston forward Kevin Garnett, while Wade (430,925) is right ahead of Boston point guard Rajon Rondo.

James is ahead of Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant in the Western Conference for the top vote-getters in the league. Bryant (639,419 votes) is second. He's joined in the West on pace to start with Oklahoma City forward Kevin Durant, Lakers teammate Dwight Howard, and two Clippers -- Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.

Chris Bosh is fourth in the frontcourt voting. Shane Battier and Ray Allen have also received their share of votes, but don't appear on track to compete for starting jobs.
