They call this the NBA’s annual popularity contest. But, based on the first returns, All-Star voting should be called the Fan Idiocy Meter. Fan voting is a problem, folks.

In the past, we listed just the top-five vote getters at each position. But we’re getting more efficient at this table-making business, so we now present to you the complete results. You know, because it’s important to know that Luol Deng is 10th among Eastern forwards.

There’s a couple nice races this season. As always, Rajon Rondo and Derrick Rose are neck-and-neck. Pau Gasol and Carmelo Anthony are fighting for that final forward spot in the West. Chris Paul and Kevin Durant are on the way to their first All-Star start.
