Discussions around a potential NBA All-Star game are ongoing.
But while we may not know how the league’s midseason showcase might look, Utah Jazz fans still know what an NBA All-Star looks like. Now is your chance to let the rest of the NBA, the country and even the world know, too.
HOW TO VOTE
• NBA.com voting page at NBA.com/Vote: Fill out one full ballot per day (per day is defined as once every 24 hours) on vote.NBA.com from a desktop or mobile browser. Fans can select up to two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference when choosing starters.
• NBA App: Access the ballot and vote through the NBA App, which is available on Android and iOS. Fans can fill out one full ballot per day by selecting up to two guards and three frontcourt players from each conference when choosing starters.
• Twitter: Tweet, retweet or reply with a hashtag of an NBA player’s first and last name (#FirstNameLastName) or Twitter handle, along with the hashtag #NBAAllStar. Each tweet may include only one player’s name or handle. Fans may vote for 10 unique players per day from Jan. 28 – Feb. 16.
DOUBLE THE VOTE
There will be five “2-for-1 Days” during the voting period. Your votes will count twice on Jan. 30, Feb. 2, Feb. 4, Feb. 13 and Feb 16. Those “2-for-1 Days” run from midnight ET until 11:59 p.m. ET.
HOW WILL VOTES BE COUNTED?
NBA players and media will join fans in selecting the NBA All-Star starters. 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 one ballot, featuring three frontcourt players and two guards from both the Eastern Conference and the Western Conference.
After all votes are tallied, 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 his weighted rank from the fan votes, the player votes and the media votes. The two guards and three frontcourt players with the best score in each conference will be named NBA All-Star starters. Fan voting will serve as the tiebreaker for players in a position group with the same score.
WHEN WILL THE NBA ALL-STARS BE ANNOUNCED?
Fan voting updates will be shared on Thursday, Feb. 4 and Thursday, Feb. 11. TNT will reveal this season’s NBA All-Star starters the evening of Thursday, Feb. 18 during TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by CarMax. TNT will also announce the NBA All-Star reserves, as selected by NBA head coaches, the evening of Tuesday, Feb. 23.
