2024 NBA All-Star Game: Victor Wembanyama, Chet Holmgren remain among voting leaders

San Antonio Spurs forward Victor Wembanyama and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Chet Holmgren remain among the league leaders in voting for the 2024 NBA All-Star Game.

Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo and Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James lead the Eastern and Western conferences in the second batch of fan returns released on Thursday. They led their respective conferences last week in the first fan vote returns.

Wembanyama and Holmgren are eighth and ninth in the frontcourt of the Western Conference, respectively, in the second batch of fan voting. The two players’ positions remained unchanged, but they collectively received over 340,000 additional votes from last week.

The 2024 NBA All-Star Game will be held on Feb. 18 at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The event will air on TNT and is expected to reach fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 50 languages.

The NBA previously announced the game will return to a matchup between the two conferences that uses the traditional scoring system with four 12-minute quarters. The voting process will still determine a captain from each conference.

Wembanyama and Holmgren face long odds of earning an All-Star selection this year: A rookie hasn’t been selected since 2011 (Blake Griffin), and only 45 in history have earned that honor, but the two 7-footers are looking to add their names to the list.
