Westbrook says Adams is'definitely worthy of being an All-Star

Oklahoma City's Paul George has supplanted Durant in the West's starting five.

George has 1,859,216 votes, trailing only the Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James (2,779,812) and Dallas' Luca Doncic (2,220,077) among Western Conference frontcourt players. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads all Eastern Conference vote-getters.

Walker, a reserve in the last two All-Star Games, is now third in Eastern Conference fan voting among guards behind the Boston Celtics' Kyrie Irving and Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade.

The fan vote, which opened on Christmas Day, accounts for 50% of the vote to determine the 10 All-Star starters.

Current NBA players account for 25 percent of the vote; so does a media panel.

Activists from the ruling African National Congress and left-wing Economic Freedom Fighters were among the chanting crowd. However at least one of the children's mothers, who does not wish to be identified, was furious with the connotations.

After the fan voting has closed, the league will also provide an All-Star poll for players to fill out, as well as for select credentialed media.

The latest round of All-Star voting returns are in and, at the very top of each conference, nothing has changed. Yet, the sixth-year center is sixth in the Western Conference in votes among frontcourt players, and has expanded his lead on Denver's Nikola Jokic to almost 300,000 votes. Captains can choose players for their teams regardless of conference affiliation. Unlike previous year, the All-Star draft WILL be televised this season although the draft date has not yet been announced. It was not televised in 2018, the first year of the captain format. The Houston Rockets' James Harden (1,674,660) and Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (1,494,382) are still in third and fourth place, respectively.

Walker is third among East guards with 858,798 votes, ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers' Ben Simmons with 695,032.

The 68th All-Star game will take place at Spectrum Center in Charlotte, N.C., on February 17 at 8 p.m. ET on TNT.

Details for the All-Star draft have yet to be announced.
