    Press Release -
    Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets and Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers lead the Western Conference, while LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat lead the Eastern Conference in votes received after the third returns of 2007 NBA All-Star
    Balloting presented by T-Mobile.

    Yao leads all players with 1,629,832 votes. The Minnesota Timberwolves ’ Kevin Garnett leads all Western Conference forwards with 947,040 votes, followed by San Antonio’s Tim Duncan (852,827). Bryant (1,386,477) and the Houston Rockets’ Tracy McGrady (1,205,510) lead all Western Conference guards.

    Currently in third place among Western Conference guards is Allen Iverson (1,157,031), who was acquired by the Denver Nuggets from the Philadelphia 76ers on Dec. 19. Since Iverson was traded to a Western Conference team after the All-Star ballot was unveiled, his Eastern Conference votes will be applied to the conference in which he now plays.

    James leads all Eastern Conference players with 1,587,738 votes, followed by Wade (1,191,403). The Toronto Raptors ’ Chris Bosh (589,829) is second to James among Eastern Conference forwards.

    Dwight deserves the starting spot over Shaq. I just really hate this popularity contest.

    Must be a typo, because Wade has more votes.
