Former Utah Jazz Legend Derrick Rose among notables in early All Star Voting returns

New, comments

The Utah Jazz didn’t have any current players found in the top ranks.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Minnesota Timberwolves Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

The first returns from the All Star voting have returned and they’re ... um ... surprising. Former Utah Jazz legend who had been acquired by Utah at last year’s trade deadline, and current member of the Minnesota Timberwolves, Derrick Rose is found among the top vote getters. He is second in votes for the Backcourt in the Western Conference.

For the Eastern Conference, former Butler Bulldog Gordon Hayward is currently in the top 10 for frontcourt players.

Auspiciously missing from the ranks was any current Jazzmen. Rudy Gobert, despite having the second highest Win Shares/48 (0.255), was nowhere to be seen. Donovan Mitchell was not listed as well. Even more surprising is perennial MVP candidate Joe Ingles was not found listed among his fellow elite peers.

This is just the first returns of the voting. To vote for current Jazz players, simply go to link below and cast your vote. Reminder that the fan vote counts for 50% of the vote while media (25%) and player votes (25%) count for the remaining 50%.
