First Glance At NBA All-Star Voting 2013 – Anthony Davis Rounds Out Frontcourt In Initial Returns

The NBA has released the first 2013 All-Star Voting ballot results. These are no where near the final results, just the results so up-to-date.

Despite playing in only 8 games this season, Hornets rookie Anthony Davis received a total of 53,779 votes and is currently is 15th place in the Western Conference front court voting results.

Though Anthony Davis is somewhere on the voting results he is no where close to being a starter or even a reserve at this point. Kevin Durant is leading the Western Conference front court in voting with 603,965 votes so far. Dwight Howard and Blake Griffin are also projected to be starters in the Western Conference front court. Howard has a total of 434,168 and Griffin has 307,855 votes.

The Western Conference is pretty deep when it comes to front court players, it will be really tough for Anthony Davis to get a All-Star consideration when there are guys like Marc Gasol, Rudy Gay, Serge Ibaka, and LaMarcus Aldridge in front of him. You have to remember LaMarcus Aldridge has yet to be an NBA All-Star but has played at an All-Star level the past few seasons. It may be tough for Anthony Davis to break into the Western Conference front court All-Star group.

Here are the full results for the first All-Star voting returns:
