Players, media get voice in NBA all-star voting process

The NBA is adding players and media to the voting process in a change to the way starters for the all-star game are selected.

Fans will account for 50 per cent of the vote, while all current players and a panel of basketball media will each account for 25 per cent.

The NBA has used fan voting to select the starters for its midseason game since the 1974-75 season.

Voting begins Sunday during the NBA's five-game Christmas lineup. Players can each complete one ballot, featuring three frontcourt players and two guards in each conference, and may vote for themselves or teammates.

Fans can submit one ballot each day through NBA.com, the NBA App,

Twitter, Facebook and Google Search, as well as via Sina Weibo and Tencent Microblogs in China.

Voting will conclude Jan. 16. The all-star game is Feb. 19 in New Orleans.
