Just 3 Days remaining to vote your Houston Rockets in as All-Stars

By Tamberlyn Richardson

Last chance to vote Houston Rockets into All-Star Game

On Thursday (January 14th) of this week the third round of fan voting for players to be selected as starters to the 2016 All-Star Game in Toronto was released.

In the West there are currently two Houston Rockets who rank within the top 1o guards and top 15 frontcourt players. Not surprisingly those 2 players are stars and captains of the Rockets: shooting guard James Harden and big man Dwight Howard.

The problem is where they fall on the list:

Harden ranks fifth among the guards with 319,596 votes which is well off second place Russell Westbrook who is over 290k ahead of the Bearded man.

For his part Howard ranks twelfth among frontcourt players and is  just under 344k votes back of third ranked Draymond Green.

The reality is it’s unlikely either Rockets player will over come the massive deficit, but then again to borrow from an old adage: “nothing ventured, nothing gained.

So, take to twitter, facebook, instagram, google etc and get your votes in. For full rules on how to get your ten daily votes in you can learn everything on NBA.com or the Rockets main site

It’s not unheard of for a player to make a last minute jump up the ranks as Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry received over 100,000 votes last year after the final update.  He had the backing of Canada’s Prime Minister and Justin Beiber though the latter incorrectly tweeted his support. Further the Beibs has given his support to Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul this year.

Again, make sure to get your All-Star Game votes in as you’ve got until Monday January 18 at 11:59:59 pm EST to get them in.
