NBA Milwaukee Bucks Los Angeles Lakers Dallas Mavericks Basketball

The NBA calendar has flipped to 2020, and that means All-Star festivities are on the horizon.

Ahead of All-Star weekend (Feb. 14-16 in Chicago), the league has released the final fan voting results. A few big names are unsurprisingly at the top of the lists, but there are some eye-openers on the leaderboards for each conference.

Lakers forward LeBron James finished slightly ahead of Luka Doncic and Giannis Antetokounmpo with the most overall votes. Fan favorites Alex Caruso and Tacko Fall landed in the top 10 at their respective positions, and Carmelo Anthony jumped up to sixth in the Western Conference frontcourt after joining the Trail Blazers in late November.

Check out the final results below ahead of the All-Star break.

How does the NBA All-Star voting process work?

The fan vote accounts for 50 percent of the total vote to determine the starters for the NBA All-Star Game. Current players and media members split the other 50 percent. Each ballot consists of two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference. Reserves are chosen by NBA head coaches, and league commissioner Adam Silver chooses injury replacements if necessary.

All-Star captains will then draft their teams from the eligible pool of players (starters in first round, reserves in second round). Captains will be selected based on which players earn the most fan votes in each conference. They are not required to draft based on conference affiliation or position.

Key dates ahead of the 2020 NBA All-Star Game

Fan voting for the 2020 NBA All-Star Game ends Monday, Jan. 20, and the starting pool will be announced three days later on Thursday, Jan. 23.
