Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love ranks sixth in NBA All-Star voting among all Western Conference frontcourt players with 112,922 votes. Love missed the first several weeks of the season with a broken hand and has been limited to just 10 games, but is averaging 19.9 points and 14.2 rebounds per game. He trails Kevin Durant, Dwight Howard, Blake Griffin, Tim Duncan, and Pau Gasol. Durant (605,965 votes), Howard (434,168 votes), and Griffin (307,855 votes) would be the starting frontcourt if the All-Star voting were completed.
Despite not playing yet this season, point guard Ricky Rubio ranks eighth among Western Conference guards with 54,744 votes. He is behind Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul, Jeremy Lin, James Harden, Russell Westbrook, Steve Nash, and Tony Parker. Kobe leads all Western Conference players with 639,419 votes and would start along side Paul (353,603 votes).
All-Star balloting will conclude on Jan. 14, and the results will be aired on TNT on Jan. 17. You can vote online at NBA.com.
