The first return of votes for the 2015-16 All-Star game are in, and there’s not much question that the fans appear to want to see Kobe Bryant in the All-Star game. He’s not just the leading vote getter; he’s the leading vote-getter by a lot. Like, a super-insane lot. He has received more votes than the next three frontcourt players, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kawhi Leonard, combined. 

Whether Kobe is deserving of such a spot is debatable, but it’s pretty clear the fans want to see him in one last All-Star Game.

The rest of the starting roster for the Western Conference right now would have Durant and Griffin joining Kobe in the frontcourt with Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook making for a pretty incredible backcourt.

The East guards right now would be Dwyane Wade and Kyrie Irving, who has a slight lead over Kyle Lowry and Jimmy Butler. The frontcourt consists of LeBron, Paul George and Andre Drummond.
