James is posting the same kind of numbers from his earlier days in the league at age 38, so there’s no wonder why he continues to be one of the most popular players in the Association.
So, unsurprisingly, the veteran forward is once again the league’s top vote-getter for the upcoming 2023 NBA All-Star Game, something he’s been used to for the better part of his career.
James leads all Western Conference players with 6,506,682 fan votes, leading Nikola Jokic by nearly two million votes.
Notably, Anthony Davis ranks third in fan voting despite missing a big stretch of the season with injuries, as per usual.

The All-Star Game sure is a popularity contest and there will be multiple snubs, but there’s no denying that James has earned every single one of those votes this season.
