2011 All-Star Update

The latest (2nd) round of All-Star Game voting has been released by the NBA:

Bryant Leads All Players in Second All-Star Returns

If you scroll to the bottom, you can see that Kevin Durant is currently leading all forwards in vote-getting with 735,521 votes.  While that number is impressive and highlights Durant’s national attractiveness, it is still dwarfed by Kobe’s count of over 1 million, and LeBron’s total of over 900,000.

The Thunder’s other hopeful, Westbrook, is seventh in votes behind Kobe and a bevy of other guards.  2011 is probably not going to be Westbrook’s year, but as guys like Nash and Kidd wind down their careers, I do believe Westbrook will become a yearly staple at the weekend festivities.
