Published

on

What a special year it is turning out for Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo. Giannis signed a mega-deal with Nike, getting his own signature shoe, and now he is leading the fan vote for the NBA All-Star game.

Back in December, Giannis said he was surprised he was getting so many votes on Twitter. “I’m surprised. Imagine how many votes didn’t count from people who didn’t know how to spell my name.” said Antetokounmpo “I’d have a million votes if  could spell my name right.”

Antetokounmpo has totaled a shade over 863,000 and LeBron James is sitting second with 856,000 votes in his 14th season. It’s the first votes so expect to see some of the numbers change over the course of the month.

In the Western Conference, Golden State Warriors teammates Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are leading the frontcourt and backcourt voting, respectively.

Check out the top vote-getters so far:

Under the new All-Star Game format, the player who receives the most votes in the Eastern Conference and Western Conference will each serve as a captain and will choose teams from the pool of players voted in as starters and reserves.

Anthony Davis unibrow has been his trademark since he entered the league. The All-Star power-forward even trademarked phrases like “Fear the Brow” and “Raise the Brow.”

Davis took asked on fans on Twitter rather he should keep the brow or shave it. 51% of fans voted yes and Davis followed through with the vote.

But just then, the camera drops and when we see Davis again the hair between his eyebrows are gone.
