That’s right, this is the fourth, and last, balloting update before all votes finalize in 11 days. Watch out for a few close races: Yi riding on KG’s coattails, Melo surpassing Amare, and CP3 falling behind TMac. If you ask me, if Yi has two more 20+ point games soon, he’ll jump Garnett. Starters will be announced Jan. 22, prior to a TNT doubleheader. Reserves will be announced one week later.
