Second returns for fan All-Star voting. Steph Curry still leads all guards (and players) in the West, Klay is in fourth. Wiggins is third in front-court voting, Draymond is sixth. pic.twitter.com/0nnyXahnNx1:12 PM

I’m glad the fan vote doesn’t solely decide the All Star starters anymore
In the West, AD and Melo are ahead of Gobert and Ayton while Klay is ahead of Booker, Paul and Mitchell
In the East, Kyrie and D Rose lead VanVleet, Garland and Jaylen

Billy Donovan’s other point he’s made – Bulls have beaten a lot of teams missing key pieces … lots of fugazi wins. Another one could happen Friday if Warriors sit Klay and DGreen. – 12:18 AM
