All-Star balloting: Second returns

By Chris Forsberg

A look at the latest returns in fan All-Star voting, which finds the Celtics' Big Three -- forward Kevin Garnett (2nd, forwards), Paul Pierce (4th, forwards), and Ray Allen (4th, guards) -- still among the top vote-getters in the Eastern Conference.
