The NBA will announce All-Star starters January 22. On Thursday, it provided a final update before that announcement. Yi Jianlian remains comfortably ahead of Chris Bosh but is still 159,000 votes behind Kevin Garnett for the second forward spot. That's slightly worse than last week. Meanwhile, Vince Carter and Devin Harris remain way behind Allen Iverson in the guard race with little chance of catching him.
