Lakers' Bynum leads West centers in All-Star voting

BynumLakers guard Kobe Bryant is the top vote-getter among Western Conference guards so far in All-Star balloting. No surprise.

But Lakers center Andrew Bynum leads West centers in voting ... by a long shot.

Bynum has 496,597 votes, easily outpacing the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, who has 134,961, according to figures released Thursday by the NBA.

Bynum, 24, has never been an All-Star. He is in his seventh NBA season.

Lakers forward Pau Gasol is fourth in voting for West forwards, trailing Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant, the Clippers' Blake Griffin and Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki.

Bryant has 690,613 votes, ahead of second-place vote-getter Chris Paul of the Clippers (540,173).

All-Star voting concludes Jan. 31. The All-Star Game is Feb. 26 in Orlando, Fla.
