The third returns for the 2014 Eastern Conference All-Star voting are in.

There really aren’t any surprises. Of course, Chicago Bulls’ point Derrick Rose should not be third among guards, but with his popularity and the fan base of Chicago, it should probably be expected.

Miami Heat forward LeBron James continues to lead all voters with 1,076,063, narrowly holding off Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, who has 1,054,209.

If the rosters were finalized today, James would be joined in the front court by Indiana Pacers’ forward Paul George and New York Knicks’ forward Carmelo Anthony.

The back court would be Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade and Cleveland Cavaliers’ guard Kyrie Irving.
