The NBA released its second returns in the fan vote for All-Star starters, with last week's top four vote-getters - divided by position group and conference - remaining at No. 1.

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry remains the top overall player among the fans, with the Los Angeles Lakers' LeBron James and the Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant standing as the only other players with more than 4-million votes to date.

Rounding out the top five are two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and reigning MVP Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets. Chicago Bulls point forward DeMar DeRozan comes in at No. 6, tops among Eastern Conference guards.
