The second returns show Kobe Bryant currently leading the Western Conference guards with 1,110,379 votes.

Tell us something we didn't know.

OK, Lakers center Andrew Bynum still maintains a wide-lead for the top West center spot with 777,365 votes, while Clippers center DeAndre Jordan has 214,883. Assuming Bynum doesn't get injured of course, it looks like he's on his way toward his first All-Star appearance.

Unlike in past seasons, Bynum lately has maintained indifference toward the honor.

"For me, I'm not worried about that," Bynum said of being included in All-Star weekend Feb. 23-26 at Orlando's Amway Center. "I just want to play well. If I go out and play well, things will work themselves out. Sometimes you get sidetracked thinking about things like that. I just go out and play hard."
