The article presents information on a public opinion poll for the most popular basketball player in the U.S. Nearly a month remains in voting for the NBA's most popular players--a process also known as All-Star balloting--but based on the early returns, there's only one reason to bother. Nine of the 10 starting spots already are wrapped up. With Yao Ming--proving again that the Chinese like to use the Internet--leading all vote-getters. Tracy McGrady, listed as a guard last year, has one forward spot sewed up. Because LeBron James has moved to forward from guard, there's now room in the East's lineup for Alien Iverson and Dwyane Wade.
