Steph Curry leads all West guards in All-Star fan voting

New, comments

And his Splash Brother is getting a fair number of votes, too.

It’s a foregone conclusion that Steph Curry will be representing the Golden State Warriors in the 2020-21 NBA All-Star Game, which for some ridiculous financial reasons is actually happening.

It will be Curry’s seventh All-Star nod, and by the looks of things, he’ll be in the starting lineup once again, as he has been the previous six times.

The NBA released the first results of fan votes for the All-Star Game, which will take place on March 7, and Curry led all Western Conference guards with just over 2.1 million votes. That put him at second among all West players (behind only LeBron James), and third in the league (behind James and Kevin Durant).

Winning the fan vote doesn’t guarantee Curry a spot in the starting lineup, but it goes a long ways. The fan vote accounts for 50% of the equation, with 25% going to the players and the media.

Curry wasn’t the only Warrior to do well with the fan voting, as Andrew Wiggins is currently seventh among Western Conference frontcourt players, and Klay Thompson is, funnily enough, 10th among all guards.
