NBA All-Star Ballot Will Include All Players
The NBA is expanding the All-Star ballot to include all players, and pushing back the start of voting so fans can really ponder their decisions
Voting for the All-Star game which will be held Feb. 15 game in New York, will begin Dec. 11 and conclude at the end of the day Jan. 19
The ballot on NBA.com will for the first time feature every player in the league. It use to only included 60 players per conference who had been selected by a media panel. I think this gives underrated players a chance to shine instead of the same players being considered every year!
Fans will continue to vote as usual for three frontcourt players and two guards to start for each conference.
President of basketball operations Rod Thorn said Thursday "Our choice to include all NBA players is both a tribute to their skills and achievements, and another way to engage our fans in the full experience of NBA All-Star by giving them every option."
