Jeremy Lin and James Harden continue to sit right behind where they need to be if fans want them to start in the 2013 All-Star Game taking place in Houston.

In the latest voting numbers released on Thursday, the Lakers' Kobe Bryant leads all league vote-getters with 977,444 votes. LeBron James leads East vote-geters with 970,314 votes.

Unfortunately for Lin and Harden, Bryant's obviously in the West backcourt. Lin is currently third in Western Conference backcourt voting with 496,133 votes, sitting just behind the Clippers' Chris Paul, who's at 542,564. Harden's fourth in Western backcourt voting with 283,691.

Other Rockets in the voting: Omer Asik is seventh and Chandler Parsons is 15th in frontcourt voting for the Western Conference.

Fans have until January 14 to get their votes in. Starters will be announced on January 17.
