All-Star game voting is under fire today.
Klay Thompson is ahead of Devin Booker in NBA All-Star voting and some people are not happy about it.
Not happy about it at all.
First returns in fan voting for the Feb. 20, 2022 All-Star Game in Cleveland were released Thursday and Thompson, an injured guard for the Golden State Warriors, was fourth among guards in the Western Conference with 367,743 votes.
Thompson hasn’t played in a single game this season.
See the first returns below:
Golden State's Stephen Curry and Brooklyn's Kevin Durant lead the Western and Eastern Conferences, respectively, in the first fan returns of NBA All-Star Voting presented by Tissot.
The next NBA All-Star fan voting update will be shared Thursday, Jan. 13. pic.twitter.com/B0kSITw4Sr

Twitter users slammed the NBA All-Star Game voting process.
This is why I push back on comments from illogical followers on Twitter about the game I have played and worked for 40 years. We give you a chance to vote and you vote for a player that has not played in over 2 years. Klay is one of my favorites ever but really! smh. https://t.co/XQAaLm4b6h

Retweet this to vote. Klay Thompson is ahead of Book right now which is ridiculous. He shouldn't even be eligible.

And this shows how big of a joke fan voting is. Klay Thompson hasn't played basketball since before the global pandemic and he's No. 4 one spot above Booker. Just ridiculous. Plus, Melo above DA is criminal. https://t.co/dE5BVDOckc

If only Devin Booker was having a better season than Klay Thompson right now. Oh well. https://t.co/6XvF0InMFm

Klay Thompson has more votes than Chris Paul and Devin Booker? smh. Time to stop letting the fans vote, or make it a small percentage or something. That's just stupid. 367K probably think the Earth is flat too. https://t.co/sGpZukG9m2

The fact that Klay Thompson has more votes for the All-Star game than Devin Booker shows how wrong fan voting is. I love Klay and he is a very talented player, but he hasn’t played in two years. Cmon man…

Ah yes, Klay Thompson and his 0.0 ppg, 0.0 rpg and 0.0 apg is so much more deserving than Chris Paul and Devin Booker thus far this season. 🙄
Fan voting is and always will be stupid. https://t.co/gSzH17rbJF

We need to end the fan vote. There is no reason Klay Thompson deserves any votes, let alone more votes than Devin Booker, Chris Paul, Donovan Mitchell, or anybody that has played at all this season. Wiggins with more votes than KAT, Ayton, and Bridges. LaMelo has more than Zo.

The people have spoken, and they love them some Klay Thompson.
