MANILA, Philippines — Make way for the old dogs.
 
The Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James and the Golden State Warrriors' Steph Curry reclaimed the top spots in the NBA All-Star Game votes.
 
James tallied 1,622,838 votes in the second return to rule the Eastern Conference, surpassing Milwaukee Bucks' Giannis Antetokounmpo who had 1,480,954 votes.
 
Curry, meanwhile, had 1,369,658 to lead the Western Conference. He dethroned teammate Kevin Durant, who garnered 1,326,059 votes. 
 
Durant, however, is still the leading the West front court players, followed by New Orlean's Anthony Davis with 664,687.
 
Houston's James Harden trails Curry as the West's top guard with 978,540 votes.
 
Boston's Kyrie Irving continues to dominate the East guards with 1,370,643 while Toronto's DeMar DeRozan is at far second with 537,168 votes.
 
The All-Star game will have a new format this year, ditching the traditional East versus West matchup.
 
The two players who will receive the most fan votes will be the captains. They will then pick their teammates from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves.
 
The All-Star Game starters and team captains will be revealed on January 18, while the reserves will be announced on January 23.
 
The 67th All-Star Game will happen on February 18 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
 
Fans can still vote for their favorite players through different platforms, including the NBA's official app, Facebook and Twitter. Voting ends on January 15.
