NBA All-Star Balloting 2015 Starts Now

HANG TIME BIG CITY — It’s time to get out the vote.

With about a quarter of the NBA season in the books, and the 2015 NBA All-Star Weekend about two months away, voting begins today for the 2015 All-Star Game thanks to NBA All-Star Balloting 2015 presented by Sprint…with a decidedly new twist.
For years, fans have been able to cast All-Star votes for most of their favorite NBA players. But this year, for the first time ever, they can vote for literally any NBA player. In years past the ballot contained 60 players from each conference who were determined by a panel of broadcasters and media members. While fans will continue to select two guards and three frontcourt players when selecting starters, with the new online ballot they have the ability to choose from the entire NBA player pool.

Another wrinkle new to the ballot is SAP, which will integrate daily stats into the online ballot. Fans will have the ability to sort players by their current stats from NBA.com/stats powered by SAP HANA.

Updating the official ballot on NBA.com to include all NBA players will complement the options afforded by the NBA’s all-digital voting program, which also includes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, SMS, NBA Game Time and NBA Game Time from Sprint applications, as well as Sina Weibo and Tencent Microblog in China. Balloting concludes on Monday, Jan. 19, and starters will be announced live on TNT on Thursday, Jan. 22, during a special one-hour edition of TNT NBA Tip-Off presented by Autotrader.com at 7 p.m. E.T.
Last season, LeBron James was the leading overall vote-getter with 1,416,419 votes, although this season he may see his voting power base shift from South Florida to Ohio. Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder finished second last season with 1,396,294 votes.

Although he didn’t play last season while recovering from Achilles tendon surgery, Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant has the chance to make his 17th All-Star roster, which would put him two games behind all-time leader Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

While this has been one of the most competitive early seasons in recent memory, there may not be much room for new All-Stars. Last season, Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, Damian Lillard, Paul Millsap and John Wall all made their All-Star debuts, and thus far this season, all would seem to be on paths toward returning. With so many incumbent All-Stars reprising their performances early on this year, it bears watching to see if a player like Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins, who is currently tied for the lead league in rebounds per game at 12.6, will be able to play his way on to the roster. Similarly, Boston’s Rajon Rondo, a four-time All-Star who missed last season’s game while recovering from injury, currently leads the league at 10.8 assists per game.

At least one starting position on the Eastern Conference team will be up for grabs, as 2014 starter Paul George from the Indiana Pacers is out recovering from a fractured leg. Toronto’s DeMar DeRozan also made last season’s Eastern Conference roster as a reserve, but is currently out and hasn’t played since November 28 after suffering a torn tendon.

A strong contender for George’s starting spot may come from Cleveland. Last season, then-Minnesota forward Kevin Love was voted to the Western Conference starting line-up, but his off-season trade to Cleveland not only shifts his Conference allegiance, it also opens a starting spot for the Western Conference. Love narrowly beat out Houston’s Dwight Howard for that starting position in 2014.

The 64th NBA All-Star Game will be played in New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden, home of the New York Knicks, on Sunday, February 15, 2015. The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game and State Farm All-Star Saturday Night — including the Sears Shooting Stars, Taco Bell Skills Challenge, Foot Locker Three-Point Contest and Sprite Slam Dunk — will be held at Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets. The recently-debuted uniforms feature nods to all five boroughs of New York City.

  31. Tongk says:

    I hope the nba changes their policy for selecting all stars. Reading these comments and seeing how many people will be voting for players like Love, Rose, KD, Kobe, Howard, Wade, etc..I understand that it’s just a popularity contest, not an actual recognition of having played well, but still…

  32. Johnjames says:

    curry go warrior

  33. D-MAC says:

    WEST= CURRY, HARDEN, DAVIS, GASOL, HOWARD
    EAST = IRVING, WALL, JAMES, LOVE, NOAH

    These are my sports for starters. You HAVE TO LOOK AT THE TEAM! All of these players are on winning teams. As much as i love kobe, melo, bosh, wade, Their teams are not on winning streaks or winning right now. The allstar game is to reward players on winning teams for their effort.

  34. peanut says:

    jeff teauge lets go hawks 8 game win streak

  35. basoboii says:

    STEPH>KLAY>ANDRE

    West-
    Frontcourt- steph curry, james harden
    Backcourt- anthony davis, blake griffin, rudy gay

  40. Ricardo says:

    Derrick Rose should be in the conversation. He hasn’t played in two seasons and he’s averaging about 16 ppg in less than 30 min a game. In time he’s going to get better and better and will get back to MVP level plus the Bulls have a better winning percentage when he’s in the line up. He’s got my vote to be an all star this year. LETS GO BULLS!!!

    • Tongk says:

      In time he might get better, and if he does THEN he should be considered. Right now? Not a chance. Not with at least three other point guards in the east who are playing way better (and more often) than he is

  41. serge says:

    lillard for all star team!!!!

  42. lcecube says:

    No question curry should be in starting lineup for the west. He’s the best point guard and shooter in the league right now unless someone can prove me wrong.

    WEST: CURRY, BRYANT, DAVIS, HOWARD, ALDRIDGE
    EAST: IRVING, WADE, LEBRON, LOVE, CARMELO

  43. Michael T says:

    East Starters: Irving, Wade, LeBron, Bosh, and Jefferson
    West Starters: Westbrook, Bryant, Harden, Aldridge, and Howard

  53. mmmmmmm says:

    I think that demarcus cousins should get Kevin Love’s spot in the west. Also, If Kobe makes it to start, I WILL SCREAM! HE WAS VOTED AS A STARTER EVEN THOUGH HE WAS INJURED. and Kevin Love will have a hard time with him going against Chris Bosh and Pau Gasol
