How does the NBA All-Star voting course of work?

The fan vote accounts for 50 % of the whole vote to find out the starters for the NBA All-Star Recreation. Present gamers and media members break up the opposite 50 %. Every poll consists of two guards and three frontcourt gamers from every convention. Reserves are chosen by NBA head coaches, and league commissioner Adam Silver chooses harm replacements if crucial.

All-Star captains will then draft their groups from the eligible pool of gamers (starters within the first spherical, reserves within the second spherical). Captains will probably be chosen primarily based on which gamers earn probably the most fan votes in every convention. They aren’t required to draft primarily based on convention affiliation or place.
