2013 NBA All-Star voting: Pistons fail to have player among top vote-getters

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Pistons have gotten off to a bad start this season, and accordingly, did not have any of their players listed among the top All-Star vote-getters.

The NBA released the results from the first round of All-Star voting on Thursday afternoon, and perhaps not surprisingly, the Detroit Pistons did not have a single player listed among the highest vote-getters in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons have stumbled to a 7-17 start so far this season, and while they've gotten some good performances from Greg Monroe and Brandon Knight, no player on the team has really played like an All-Star.

The current starting five for the Eastern Confernece is LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Garnett in the frontcourt, and Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo in the backcourt. The NBA did away with the center spot in this season's All-Star voting, which put a considerable dent in Monroe's chances of making the team.

All-Star voting continues until Jan. 14. The final results and the starting lineups for the 2013 All-Star Game will be announced on Jan. 17 on TNT.
