NBA All-Star 2017 voting leaders: Early results revealed

The NBA released Thursday the first voting results for 2017's All-Star Game in New Orleans and the 6-foot-11 Pachulia is now second behind fellow Warrior Kevin Durant for a starting nod in the Western Conference's frontcourt. And guess what: The passionate fans from back home in Georgia - along with some other Internet trolls - now have Pachulia, with 439,675 votes, in the second starting frontcourt spot in the Western Conference, alongside Kevin Durant (541,209) and Kawhi Leonard (341,240).

The Cleveland Cavaliers duo of forward LeBron James and Kyrie Irving lead all players with the most votes. Stephen Curry, despite all of the criticism and talk of his drop off, leads all guards in the West as well. The Warriors' are only promoting the Core Four of Curry, Durant, Draymond Green, and Klay Thompson and Pachulia still has managed to get over 439 thousand votes. James has 595,288 votes and Irving 543,030.

The NBA has changed the voting system this year, partly due to the fact that Pachulia nearly made the team last year. Now, the fan vote only counts for 50 percent of the total vote with players and media making up the other half.

Around this time previous year, then Dallas Mavericks center Zaza Pachulia came a little more than 14,000 votes shy of starting the 2016 NBA All-Star Game. But he should be recognized - as long as the voting remains the same - since he's on a pace to tie Kobe Bryant and Karl Malone for most times chosen an All-Star starter (11).

Vote: & NBA App. But at this point, with the new voting system, it's extremely unlikely unless the fans give him a massive enough lead before the media and player ballots - where Zaza won't poll well - are tallied. Voting ends on January 16 and the All-Star Game is February 19.
