Chris Paul, David West, Emeka Okafor, and Trevor Ariza are on the on-line voting ballot for the 60th NBA all-star game. The game will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 20th. Paul has been an all-star the last three years, and West is a two-time all-star. Fans only determine the starting lineup for the Eastern and Western Conference all-star rosters, so make it a habit to vote for the four Hornets everyday.

All four players are performing at an all-star level this season. 

Chris Paul ranks second in the league in assists per game (10.2), 5th in steals (2.5) and is first in assist-to-turnover ratio (4.64) while leading the team with a 17.8 scoring average. He’s also the MVP of the entire league up to this early point in the season.

Emeka Okafor is having the best statistical season of his career, ranking third in the league in field goal percentage (.600), ninth in blocks per game (2.3) and 17th in rebounds (9.3).

Trevor Ariza is an early candidate for first team All-NBA defensive team, as he’s arguably the best defender for the best defense in the league.

Speaking of defense, David West has made two all-star appearances based primarily on his offensive abilities. While he’s just as solid offensively as he was in his two all-star seasons, he’s playing terrific defense this year. He also ranks second on the Hornets in scoring, rebounds, and blocks.
