NBA — 13 November 2014
NBA All-Star Ballot Expanded to Include Every Player

It hasn’t even been a year since Adam Silver took over for David Stern as NBA commissioner, but it feels as if he’s made more changes in this time than Stern has over the past several years. It gives you the sense that Silver stood idly by compiling a list of new things he would implement.

The NBA has made a change to their all-star voting process, and is something that is long overdue. For the first time, every NBA player will be eligible to make the all-star team. Previously, you had to be on the ballot which is ridiculous because what’s the criteria for making the ballot after just 10 games? Kudos, Mr. Silver.

The NBA is expanding the All-Star ballot to include all players, and pushing back the start of voting so fans can better consider their choices.

Voting for the Feb. 15 game in New York will open Dec. 11. It traditionally began this week, when teams aren’t even 10 games into their seasons.

The ballot on NBA.com will for the first time feature every player in the league. It formerly included only 60 players per conference who had been selected by a media panel.

Fans will continue to vote for three frontcourt players and two guards to start for each conference. The online ballot will be updated daily to include players who have newly signed or been called up from the NBA Development League.
