NBA All-Star Voting is underway. Vote for Colin Sexton, Andre Drummond and Larry Nance Jr.!
NBA All-Star Voting 2021 Presented by AT&T, the official 5G wireless network of the NBA, is underway and will conclude on Tuesday, Feb. 16 at 11:59 p.m. ET, giving fans the opportunity to vote for the NBA All-Star starters. Discussions surrounding a potential NBA All-Star Game are ongoing. Fans will be able to vote via the NBA App, NBA.com, and Twitter.
Throughout the voting period, fans may submit one full ballot each day through the NBA App and NBA.com, as well as China.NBA.com, and the NBA micro program on WeChat in China. Fans may also vote for up to 10 unique players per day on Twitter. All current NBA players will be available for selection.
This season’s program will once again feature five “2-for-1 Days” which will allow fans to have their votes count twice on Jan. 30, Feb. 2, Feb. 4, Feb. 13 and Feb. 16 through all voting platforms (NBA.com, NBA App, Twitter, as well as China.NBA.com, and WeChat in China). All “2-for-1 Days” will be designated midnight ET – 11:59 p.m. ET. These designated “2-for-1 Days” help drive votes for increased fan data capture.
NBA players and select basketball media will join fans in selecting the All-Star Game 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 and 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.
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.
