The first batch of fan voting results were released on Thursday, with Paul George and Kawhi Leonard both in the top five of voting in the Western Conference.
Leonard is currently in third place among frontcourt players. He has 1,285,777 million votes. On the season, Leonard is averaging 26.2 points per game, along with 5.3 rebounds and 5.3 assists. He’s currently on pace for a 50/40/90 season, as he’s shooting 51.3 percent from the field, 40.4 percent from deep and 90.9 percent from the free-throw line.
In fifth place is George, who has only 549,280 votes. I say only, because he should have at least triple that number. On the season, George is averaging 24.4 points per game, along with 6.2 rebounds and 5.5 assists. His shooting numbers are even better than Leonard’s. George is also on pace for a 50/40/90 season, as he’s shooting 50.8 percent from the field, 47.8 percent (!!!!) from deep and 90.5 percent from the free-throw line.
The next fan voting update will be shared on Thursday, Feb. 11.
