James Harden NOT leading backcourt All-Star voting?

The NBA released the first run of voting for the All-Star Game on Thursday.

Kevin Durant is the major vote recipient in the Japanese Meeting for the 2022 All-Star Game thus far, which isn’t a shock. He has a lot more than one million votes a lot more than Joel Embiid, who’s third between frontcourt gamers thus far.

However, it’s shocking that not only is James Harden not major all guards in the conference, but there is a sizeable gap in between the major vote-getter and Harden.

Chicago has been a pleasant shock this year and is plainly one of the improved groups in the East. And DeMar DeRozan has been wonderful.

But the gap in between DeRozan and Harden is practically 600,000 votes correct now. In point, Harden is nearer to Trae Young (third) than he is to DeRozan.

And exactly where are the Knicks? The only Knicks participant included in the listing(s) is Derrick Rose, who’s seventh between guards.

Kyrie Irving, who has performed one match this year, has a lot more votes than Rose — or any other Knick for that subject.

New Yorkers need to get out and vote for their favored gamers if they want them to take part in the All-Star Game this yr.
