Before the Indiana Fever face the Atlanta Dream on June 21, early results from the WNBA's All-Star voting turned heads. Fever guard Caitlin Clark, largely considered the face on the league, was the assumed favorite to win the most votes.

While Clark continues to break league records, most recently becoming the first rookie guard since 2007 to have consecutive double-doubles, she's not in first place.

Leading the All-Star votes is Las Vegas Aces center A'ja Wilson. Wilson earned 217,773 votes while Clark, in second place, garnered 216, 427 votes.

While Wilson is largely considered the best player in the entire WNBA, after seeing the results, die-hard Clark fans urged everyone to vote in order to get the 22-year-old back on top.

As a member of Team USA, Wilson will compete in the WNBA's All-Star game regardless of the voting results.

In third place, Fever forward Aliyah Boston with 171,864 votes. Two other Fever players cracked the Top 20, NaLyssa Smith took the No. 17 spot with Kelsey Mitchell right behind.

Clark's former Iowa Hawkeye teammate, Aces guard Kate Martin, is in 12th place.

The WNBA All-Star game is set to take place on July 20 in Phoenix, Arizona. The matchup features the All-Stars winners against Team USA's Olympic basketball team. While Wilson made the Olympic roster, she's still eligible for All-Star votes.

Voting concludes on Saturday, June 29 at 11:59 p.m. ET,
