2013 NBA All-Star voting: Washington Wizards going unrepresented so far in voting

As of right now, not a single member of the 3-16 Washington Wizards have received enough votes to be considered for the NBA All-Star Game.

While players like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Garnett and Chris Bosh are soaking up vast amounts of votes to play in the 2013 NBA All-Star Game, Jordan Crawford, Bradley Beal and others from the Washington Wizards are getting next to none. James leads the Eastern Conference, and the entire league, in votes with 641,348 and Jrue Holiday brings up the rear in the Eastern Conference with 35,193 votes.

Voting won't end until Jan. 14, but as of now, there are zero Wizards players on the list, which is mostly comprised of players from the Miami Heat, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets with a couple players peppered in from the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Wizards aren't alone, though. The Orlando Magic, Charlotte Bobcats, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Pistons and the Toronto Raptors are all teams who have been left behind when it comes to All-Star voting.

Of the teams with no players receiving any votes, there is only one team without a losing record (Indiana is at .500 with an 11-11 record), and Cleveland is the only team with a losing record to have players (Anderson Varejao and Kyrie Irving) that have received a decent amount of votes.

To vote, you can go to NBA.com, you can text a players' last name to MYNBA (6-9-6-2-2), or you can vote via Twitter or Facebook. Starters will be announced on Jan. 17.
