According to the NBA Secretariat’s 2023-2024 All-Star fan voting results, James received 5,098,872 votes and ranked first (second overall) in the Western Conference. As a result, James has been eligible to play in the All-Star Game for 20 consecutive years since the 2004-2005 season, the second year since his debut in the NBA. During the 2003-2004 season after his debut in the NBA, he was only able to play in the “Rookie Challenge.”

Until last season, James and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (77) tied for the most No. 1 (19 times) in All-Star selection. Kobe Bryant (1978-2022) ranked third with 18 selections. Michael Jordan (61), the “basketball emperor,” was selected as the 14th (joint 7th) All-Star during his 15 seasons in the NBA. This season, the Eastern Conference’s “Greek Express” Yanis Antetokounmpo (30, Milwaukee) topped the NBA All-Star voting list. Antetokounmpo was picked as the eighth All-Star by an individual with 5,427,874 votes, which is about 330,000 more than James. Antetokounmpo and James will captain the East and West teams at the All-Star Game, which will take place at Indiana Stadium on Feb. 19. Both players were captains of both teams last season.
