Source: NBA All-Star Balloting Blossoming

Published

“The NBA confirmed All-Star balloting saw a 28% increase in fan voting this year with more than 25 million votes cast,’’ a league source said. “The NBA, unlike MLB, is a digital-only program with no paper ballot in arenas.

“This year, for the first time, the NBA made every player eligible to be voted for, so that obviously spread the votes out more than ever before amongst many more players. Also, the NBA started balloting later this year, so the voting window was 27 days shorter this year (67 to 40 days) and the numbers were still up by 28%.’’
