It is safe to say that New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul will once again be a Western Conference All-Star in 2010. But his chances of starting in the game continue to decrease as the voting begins to wind down.
Needing to place in the top 2 at his position to be a starter, Paul is currently 4th among guards out West trailing 2nd place embattled Houston Rockets guard Tracy McGrady by over 45,000 votes. Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash is in third and just 2,375 votes behind McGrady.
The only other New Orleans player receiving votes in the top 12 is Emeka Okafor, currently 11th among centers in the West.
Kobe Bryant of the World Champion L.A. Lakers leads all players in votes received with nearly 1.8 million.
The 2010 NBA All-Star Game takes place at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday, February 14, 2010 in Arlington, TX.
Voting for starters ends on January 18.
