In the second returns, Carmelo jumps into the starting spot over Pau Gasol, but Melo’s lead remains tenuous at best. Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo continue in a tight race for the starting spot in the East. Knicks fans finally picked up their ballots, nearly doubling Amar’e Stoudemire‘s votes from when we last checked in. STAT very well could surpass Kevin Garnett for a starting spot in the East. Ray Felton and Danilo Gallinari also make respectable cameos. Blake Griffin is proving himself as an emerging fan-favorite, with nearly triple John Wall‘s votes despite being among the crowded West Forwards.
