Christmas Day is the first really "big" day for the NBA. Games all day and televised nationally, there are a lot of eyes on the league. However, this is also a stopping point for the league, a little past the quarter mark of the season. With that, the first batch of All Star voting has been released.
As one can see, Kevin Garnett is the only Net listed on the first release of All Star votes. He is ninth in Eastern Conference frontcourt votes, and he's probably that high because of his name. What is more surprising is that Deron Williams and Joe Johnson don't crack the top ten, while players like Louis Williams have. While it is understandable, considering Williams has had a resurgent year in Toronto, Johnson and Williams still have some name recognition that should warrant some votes.
The NBA All Star Game is February 15 at Madison Square Garden, while all other events will be held at the Barclays Center on February 13 and 14.
