    The Luka votes are ridiculous. He has the 4th most votes in the entire league. Even over golden boy Curry.

    Kawhi's popularity is really growing. Being in Toronto has helped him tremendously

    What's driving the continued Rose support? Casual fans don't know who he is. The hardcore fans really care about him that much? I don't vote and I don't care. But I'm surprised to see he's still up there.

    And ESPN.com's front-page headline link to the story is:

    Durant not among starters in latest ASG voting

    When it should be:

    Reigning MVP Harden not among starters in latest ASG voting

    Honestly, WTMFF?

    Rose’s votes are from casual fans and only fans

    If the MVP isn’t starting then they should just cancel the game.

    I can't believe Harden is 300k votes behind Rose.

    Rose had 1 great game, and is playing well this year, but cmon.... it's all narrative, narrative, narrative whereas Harden actually deserves the spot. It's all so stupid.

    Harden has no chance of losing out to DRose. Silver will doctor the final tallies to put him in over Scrubby Rose.

    But Durant? That might be a real threat, to lose out to Luka. He’s 500k votes back and Silver might just entertain the prospect of building up the next generation’s face of the NBA. I hate hate hate that he’s a Maverick.

    Remember, the FANS only count 50% of the vote. Players/Media are the other 50%.

    Rose and Luka will not be starters. Wade MAYBE if the players give him a nod as a send-off.

    That said, the fan votes show the POPULARITY of the players. Luka above Curry and as the 4th most popular is something.
