All-Star starters will be named on Jan. 24 and the NBA announced the final update Thursday afternoon. Jason Kidd (second among Eastern Conference guards) is still in line to start, and now holds a lead of more than 134,000 votes over Ray Allen. Vince Carter remains fourth among East guards and Richard Jefferson is still not listed among the top 10 forwards in voting. Last year, Carter was second in the final update, but was then passed by Gilbert Arenas in the final week of voting.
