The NBA released its first All-Star vote update Friday morning, and, well, it’s a bit of a mess.

Kobe Bryant is leading all vote-getters (even Steph Curry), despite having a mediocre-at-best farewell season. Kobe has 719,235 votes to Curry’s 510,202. No other player in either conference has more than 360,000 votes.

In the Eastern Conference, LeBron James leads, which will cause no controversy, with Dwyane Wade and Paul George behind him. But somehow Kyrie Irving, who has played two games this season, is second among Eastern guards, with 138,191 votes.

If voting ended today, started would be LeBron, George, Wade, Irving and Andre Drummond in the East against Kobe, Kevin Durant, Curry, Russell Westbrook and Blake Griffin in the West.

It’s one thing for Kobe to get more votes than he deserves to honor his last season — we see that in All-Star games across sports all the time — but NBA fans have no excuse for supporting Irving so enthusiastically despite him having barely played this season.

Luckily, there is plenty of time for the vote totals to skew in the direction of reason, as tends to happen.

Here are the full results:
