Back in 2012, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant passed legendary big man Shaquille O’Neal for the most NBA All-Star votes all-time. Shaq finished his career with a total of 23,834,598 million votes, and Kobe Bryant will finish with 6,426341 more votes than O’Neal ever received, the most all-time:
Bryant received over a million votes this year at a total of 1,981,614 votes votes, which was good for 287,289 more than the second top vote-getter. This was the 4th time in Bryant’s storied career that he lead the NBA in total number of All-Star votes, joining 2003, 2011, and 2013.
Kobe’s 18th All-Star Game will be his last of course. The 37-year-old guard is averaging 15.8 points, 3.5 assists, and 3.9 rebounds per game on 34% shooting from the field and 24% from three on the year.
