NBA All-Star Voting now open for fans – vote here! | NBA News

Voting for the NBA All-Star kicked off on Christmas Day, the league announced, giving fans the opportunity to vote for the holders of the NBA All-Star Game 2022.

The vote officially started on Christmas day and you can vote by clicking this link right here every day.

A letter from the League invites the fans to: “Vote for the players who fascinate you. Who makes you get up from your chair. And who leaves you speechless!”

Fans can register their votes via the NBA app, NBA.com, and Twitter for a four-week period between December 25th and January 22nd.

The 71st NBA All-Star Game will take place on Sunday, February 20 in Cleveland, which is home to NBA All-Star 2022.

This year’s festivities will celebrate the league’s 75th anniversary. Cleveland last hosted the NBA All-Star in 1997 when the NBA commemorated its 50th anniversary.

During the four-week voting period, fans can submit a full ballot each day via the NBA app and NBA.com, as well as vote for up to 10 unique players per day on Twitter. All current NBA players will be available for selection.

Five “2 for 1 days” will allow fans to double count their votes on December 25, January 7, January 13, January 17 and January 20 across the various voting platforms.

NBA players and media will continue to join fans in starter selection for the NBA All-Star Game. Fans will account for 50 percent of the vote, while all current players and a media panel will account for 25 percent each. Players and media will be able to complete a ballot, with three players in attack and two guards from both the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference.

The starters of the NBA All-Star Game, including the two team captains, will be revealed on Thursday, January 27 during the TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax. The same show will also announce the reserves, selected by the NBA head coaches, on Thursday, February 3.

After all votes have been counted, players will be ranked in each conference by position (guard and frontcourt) within each of the three voting groups: fan votes, player votes, and media votes. Each player’s score will be calculated by averaging their weighted position between fan ratings, player ratings, and media ratings. The two guards and three offensive players with the highest score in each conference will be named owners of the NBA All-Star Game. The fan vote will serve as a tiebreaker for players in a position group with the same score.

The rosters of the NBA All-Star Game teams will then be drawn up by the two captains. They will choose from the pool of voted players as holders and reserves at each conference, making their selections regardless of conference affiliation. The captains will be the All-Star holder of each conference that receives the most fan votes in its conference. Details on the NBA All-Star Draft will be announced at a later date.
