NBA All-Star Voting: Steph Curry Paces, Klay Thompson Among Leaders

Steph paces NBA All-Star voting with Klay, Wiggs also among leaders originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Steph Curry is at the top of the leading vote-getters in the first returns of 2022 NBA All-Star voting, and he was followed close behind by a pair of Warriors teammates.

Steph's 2,584,623 votes easily were the most in the Western Conference, with former Warrior and Brooklyn Nets star Kevin Durant leading the East with 2,360,435 votes.

Klay Thompson is fourth among West guards with 367,743 votes. Even though he has not played a minute this season, Klay ranks ahead of stars like Donovan Mitchell and Devin Booker.

Both Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green are among the top five forwards in initial voting, with Wiggins earning 933,335 votes and Draymond garnering 691,423.

The gulf between Steph and the rest of the guards in the West is stark, as Curry nearly has two million more votes than runner-up Luka Doncic.

The Warriors are tied with the Phoenix Suns for the best record in the NBA, and it should come as no surprise that the group could have as many as four All-Stars representing Golden State in Cleveland come February.

Fan voting only decides the starting fives for each conference, so we will see whether Curry ends up being joined by any of his teammates by the time voting closes on Jan. 22.
