Chris Paul, James Harden among leaders in latest All-Star voting returns

The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James and the Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry have taken the overall lead in their respective conferences.

In the Eastern Conference, specifically, it's essentially yearly battle to see who gets to take on - or, more precisely, lose - to LeBron James in the playoffs. New York Knicks' Kristaps Porzingis is fourth with 640,928 votes.

Current NBA players and a panel of basketball media make up the rest of the ballot, each accounting for 25 percent of the voting, which concludes on Monday.

Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving leads all East guards with 1,370,643 votes, followed by Toronto Raptors' DeMar DeRozan (537,168).

Curry leads Western Conference players with 1,369,658 votes, while Durant is right behind him with 1,326,059 in the latest update, per Slater. Houston Rockets' James Harden (978,540) and Oklahoma City Thunder's Russell Westbrook (791,332) are second and third, respectively.

Under a revamped All-Star Game format, the two captains this year will choose their rosters from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves.

Fans have until 11:59 p.m. ET on January 15 to get their votes in. The All-Star Game is set on February 18 at Los Angeles.

Unfortunately for fans, the National Basketball Association and commissioner Adam Silver have repeatedly said the All-Star draft won't be televised due to the discomfort some players will have over the draft order.

One through four are Golden State's Kevin Durant, New Orleans' Anthony Davis, Golden State's Draymond Green and New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins. Starters will be announced on Thursday, Jan. 18 during TNT NBA Tip-Off at 5 p.m. CT.
