The second returns on fan voting were released on Thursday and George is in position to start in the All-Star Game for the first time as a Western Conference player and the first time since 2016 when he was with Indiana.
Fan make up 50 percent of the voting for the 10 starters for the All-Star Game, which will take place on February 17 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Giannis Antetokounmpo leads all Eastern Conference vote-getters.
In the second fan returns, James leads all players with 2,779,812 votes to maintain the top spot in the Western Conference frontcourt.
Irving is by far the leader among East guards with 2,381,901 fan votes.
All current National Basketball Association players and a media panel each account for 25 percent of the vote, with those voters completing one full ballot featuring two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Voting for National Basketball Association players and media also concludes on January 21.
The captains' draft will be televised this season.
Just like previous year, the leading vote-getter from each conference will serve as a captain and will draft their rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves in each conference.
National Basketball Association head coaches will vote for the reserves and also for replacement nominees in case of an injury, which could bring a few other names into consideration down the line.
