Kemba Walker still trails Kyrie Irving in All-Star fan vote

By WEEI 93.7

The NBA released its third set of returns for the 2020 All-Star Game on Thursday and Kyrie Irving now holds a 16,985-vote lead over Kemba Walker for the second guard position out of the Eastern Conference. Trae Young leads all Eastern Conference guards with 2,066,924 votes.

Like Walker, the other four Celtics who’ve received significant consideration from fans for this season’s All-Star Game have not climbed in the standings.

Jayson Tatum (1,622,635) is fifth among Eastern Conference forwards, with Tacko Fall (757,375) right behind him at No. 6. Gordon Hayward (398,213) is two slots behind Fall.
