The first returns for All-Star Game fan voting are in and Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is 12th among Western Conference frontcourt players with 60,923 votes.

Cousins is off to the best start of his career, averaging 22.5 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocked shots. Cousins is one of three players (Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge) averaging at least 21 points and 10 rebounds.

Barring a miraculous influx of votes, Cousins will have to rely on coaches voting him into the game.

The game is Feb. 16, 2014 in New Orleans.
