All-Star vote: The players who always do better with fans than peers

- by

For the sixth year in a row, the NBA has disclosed the vote for All-Star starters of fans, media and players. Since we now have the data of where each player ranked in the final results, we decided to look for patterns.

For example, which players do better with fans than with their NBA peers?

Klay Thompson fared way better in the fan vote than in the player vote, which makes some sense this year considering he’s been injured and fans can easily cast votes for players they like, not necessarily based on merit.

He’s one of several in the short list we put together playing in a big market.

For more details, you can check the list below. All rankings based on position and conference.
