Time to get #SendBamAdebayoToChicago2020 trending!
With Christmas Day now behind us, the NBA will now move forward to its next big promotional event. Fan voting for this year’s NBA All-Stars is now open and you can make your choices by following the link here.
You are limited to one vote per 24 hours, but you can easily bypass that by using a different web browser or switching between phone and laptop.
Each user is permitted to vote for 10 total players. You choose five players from the Western Conference and five more from the East. Making up those five players from each conference are two backcourt players and three from the frontcourt.
So, for example, here are my votes from earlier on Friday morning.
Fan selections make up for 50 percent of the overall All-Star votes, so your voice will have a significant say in deciding who is honored this year. Just don’t make a mockery of the system by being the person that spams Derrick Rose or Carmelo Anthony five times a day. Keep them as far away from the All-Star game as possible. (Okay, the system is kind of already screwed)
Some choices are easy, such as the Western Conference backcourt of James Harden and Luka Doncic. Some are much more difficult, like picking between Bam Adebayo, Pascal Siakam, Jimmy Butler, and Jayson Tatum for the final frontcourt spot in the East alongside Joel Embiid and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
If you feel so inclined, go ahead and select 10 Kentucky players. They’re the only program in the country that actually has 10 players you could make All-Star cases for. Do you want Willie Cauley-Stein to make the roster over LeBron James? Then go for it! You are in control!
There are several legitimate All-Star candidates to choose from in the BBNBA, including Adebayo (MIA), Karl-Anthony Towns (MIN), Anthony Davis (LAL), Devin Booker (PHX), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (OKC), Julius Randle (NYK), Jamal Murray (DEN), and Eric Bledsoe (MIL). Even the two rookies, Tyler Herro (MIA) and P.J. Washington (CHA), will garner some votes from the fans, media, and players.
Go vote! The All-Star game isn’t until Feb. 16 in Chicago and voting runs up through the month of February.
