The NBA All-Star Game is now just a few weeks away.
The game will be held on February 19 in Salt Lake City and all eyes are on who is going to participate.
This year’s fan voting has had a few surprises with several new names being injected into the conversation.

But the final batch of fan votes proves that loyal NBA followers have made up their minds about who should play in the game.
LeBron James again has the highest number of fan votes, with 6,506,862.
Were there any major surprises in this final round of voting from the fans?
Not really, this last batch was just confirmation of what we had seen before.
However, it is still exciting and a bit shocking to see players like Austin Reaves of the Los Angeles Lakers, Derrick Rose of the New York Knicks, Nic Claxton of the Brooklyn Nets, and Domantas Sabonis of the Sacramento Kings acquire so much support.
At the start of this season, few people thought they’d be generating so much buzz.
The All-Star Game is a chance for fans to show the league who they love and who has the most loyal supporters.
It is a good snapshot of the state of the league and the biggest movers and shakers inside of it.
We still aren’t 100% sure who will participate in the game next month but after this last round of voting, we do know who has the most love from the fans.
