LeBron James was the leading vote-getter for the Feb. 14 game at Cowboys Stadium, becoming the first player to earn at least 2.5 million votes three times (2,549,793). He will make his sixth All-Star appearance, all as a starter. “The fans still love and see what I do every night and they appreciate it, and I appreciate them for electing me as an All-Star starter,” James said before the Cavaliers hosted the Los Angeles Lakers. “It’s still special.” Joining James as East starters were Miami guard Dwyane Wade, Orlando center Dwight Howard, Boston forward Kevin Garnett and Philadelphia’s Allen Iverson. Lakers guard Kobe Bryant was picked in the West along with Phoenix center Amare Stoudemire and Denver forward Carmelo Anthony while Steve Nash and Tim Duncan made late moves to claim starting spots for the Western Conference.
