The third return of the 2022 All-Star Game voting is finally here, with LeBron James ultimately taking the most voted player over Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. The Los Angeles Lakers superstar has been on a tear recently, recording impressive performances with the Purple and Gold.
The veteran player keeps showing his quality, earning a lot of good comments thanks to his dominance at age 37. Fans are fired up to see Bron doing his thing this season, and this All-Star Game voting is a big proof of that.
Now, the player is the most voted star for the 2022 ASG, which would be his fifth consecutive game serving as captain. The NBA shared the third voting return, pretty much confirming what players will be selected as starters from each conference.
LeBron surpassed the Golden State Warriors and Brooklyn Nets superstars in the latest return, almost reaching the 7 million votes, while Stephen Curry managed to surpass the 6-million mark. Kevin Durant has earned 5,496,513 votes so far, ranking third overall. DeMar DeRozan is the leader in Eastern Conference guards, ranking 6th overall (4.1 million), behind Giannis Antetokounmpo (5.1 million) and Nikola Jokic (4.1 million).
Andrew Wiggins confirmed his good moment this season with his 2.6 million votes, just like Ja Morant, who is 2nd among Western Conference guards. Klay Thompson surprisingly ranks 4th, surpassing players like Devin Booker, Donovan Mitchell or Chris Paul.
It seems like LeBron will face Kevin Durant for the second consecutive All-Star Game. Last season, KD's team couldn't keep up with Team LeBron, who won by a 20-point margin in Atlanta.
James is undefeated in these games after beating Team Curry in 2018, Team Giannis in 2019 and 2020, before dismantling Team Durant last year.
