Checking in on NBA All-Star voting

We have a Thursday afternoon update from the NBA All-Star polling office where four of your favorite former Kentucky Wildcats are in contention for a spot in this year’s game.

Anthony Davis is currently the leading vote-getter among Cats with 576,201 votes to his name, good enough for fourth in the Western Conference’s frontcourt race. DeMarcus Cousins isn’t far behind him at sixth with 379,225 votes, followed by Karl-Anthony Towns in seventh with 223,979.

John Wall has the seventh-most votes in the Eastern Conference’s backcourt race with 173,148.
