The third round of NBA All-Star fan votes was released earlier on Thursday by the Association and we’ve got some surprising leaps – although nothing quite new on the Kentucky front.
There are still four former Wildcats that made the list and they’re the same four we’ve seen in the previous two rounds of votes: Anthony Davis (4,412,619 votes), Karl-Anthony Towns (746,013 votes), Devin Booker (577,035 votes), and Bam Adebayo (529,244 votes).
The third returns from #VoteNBAAllStar 2020!

LeBron James (LAL) is the current overall leader in votes with 4.7 million while Luka Doncic (DAL) trails The King by roughly 150,000 votes. Giannis Anteotokounmpo (MIL) is the leader in the Eastern Conference, gathering nearly 4.5 million votes. The most interesting jump was by Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso, who gained over 350,000 fan votes since last Thursday.
If you’d like to vote for your favorite ‘Cat, you can do so here. Voting officially closes on Jan. 20 at 11:59 p.m., so there is plenty of time to get your votes in. Another incentive to vote would be that from now until the polls close, all votes are worth TWO instead of one. IT IS YOUR CIVIC DUTY TO VOTE! NOW POKÉMON GO TO THE POLLS!
I’ll be releasing my personal picks for the 20202 NBA All-Star game later in the week, and you’ll more than likely see at least three former Kentucky players make my cut.
