Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard remains in second place among Eastern Conference forwards after the second return of National Basketball Association all-star voting.

Lakers forward LeBron James (2,779,812) and Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo (2,670,806) continue to lead their respective conferences in the second return of NBA All-Star Game voting.

James Harden, the Houston Rockets guard who was the regular-season MVP in 2017-18, is more than 40,000 points behind Durant.
