As of Thursday afternoon, Durant led all Eastern Conference players in All-Star votes -- he is the only player in the East with over 4 million votes.
Durant currently leads the NBA with 29.7 points per game, his highest since he led the league with 32.0 points per contest in his MVP 2013-14 season. His 5.9 assists are the second-most of his career, and his 7.5 rebounds are the sixth-most.
Durant obviously was not named an All-Star in 2019-20, as he missed the entire year recovering from a torn Achilles, but aside from that, the last time Durant was not named an All-Star was the 2008-09 season, where he averaged 25.3 points per game.
Harden has the fourth-most votes among Eastern Conference guards, with just over 1.4 million, while Irving's 560,000+ votes (despite playing his first of just three games this season on Jan. 5), are the sixth-most among guards in the conference.
