2013 NBA All-Star voting: Dirk Nowitzki, O.J. Mayo garnering votes, but not enough

Ronald Martinez

Dirk Nowitzki's injury has all but taken the Mavericks out of the Western Conference All-Star picture.

The Dallas Mavericks have two players among the top vote-getters in the 2013 NBA Western Conference All-Star balloting, but both of are going to need some serious ballot box stuffing to take place in order to make the team.

Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki ranks No. 11 among Western Conference frontcourt players with 63,056 votes even though he hasn't set foot on the court for Dallas this season. The top three vote-getters at the position are Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder at 605,965 votes, Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers at 434,168 votes, and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers with 307,855 votes.

Guard O.J. Mayo received 36,495 votes, but is well out of the picture as he ranks No. 9 among Western Conference backcourt players. The leading vote-getters at the position are Kobe Bryant of the Lakers with 639,419 votes and Clippers guard Chris Paul, who has tallied 353,603 votes-to-date.

Miami Heat forward LeBron James leads all vote-getters with 641,348 votes.

The 2013 NBA All-Star Game is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 17 at the Toyota Center in Houston. The game and NBA All-Star Saturday Night will be televised on TNT.
