Where Tatum and Brown stand in first NBA All-Star fan voting results originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The NBA and NBPA reportedly have agreed to stage the 2021 All-Star Game on March 7 in Atlanta, and the Boston Celtics could have multiple players participating in the matchup. 

Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown both are playing at a high level this season. Tatum is averaging a team-leading 26.8 points, along with 7.3 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game. Brown is averaging a career-high 26.4 points and shooting 42.4 percent from 3-point range.

Both players are deserving of an All-Star spot, and you also could make a strong case that one of them should start in the game.

The league released the first round of All-Star Game fan voting Thursday afternoon. Here's where Tatum and Brown stand in the opening batch of results. 

The Celtics' stars are where they probably should be in the first vote count.

Tatum has two former MVP winners and 76ers center Joel Embiid -- who's having the best season of his career -- in front of him. Brown has a former MVP (James Harden), an elite guard (Kyrie Irving) and the league's leading scorer (Bradley Beal) above him.

Tatum received his first All-Star selection last season when he got in as a reserve. Brown was among the biggest snubs a year ago, but should get his first nod in 2021.
