As we are roughly three weeks away from 2019's NBA All-Star Weekend in Charlotte, North Carolina, fans are locking down their selections of players who rightfully deserve to be a part of the midseason classic.

As expected, LeBron James leads the way in votes. Meanwhile, Bucks point forward Giannis Antetokounmpo overtook Steph Curry as this year's second captain for the game.
