For the second consecutive year, NBA players and basketball media joined fans in selecting the All-Star Game starters. Fans accounted for 50 percent of the vote to determine the starters, while current players and a media panel accounted for 25 percent each.
After all votes were tallied, players were ranked in each conference by position (guard and frontcourt) within each of the three voting groups. Each player’s score was calculated by averaging his weighted rank from the fan votes, the player votes and the media votes. The two guards and three frontcourt players with the best score in each conference were named NBA All-Star Game starters. Fan voting served as the tiebreaker for players in a position group with the same score. This year, the tiebreaker was not needed to determine a starting spot.
Under a new All-Star Game format that replaces the traditional matchup between conferences, two captains will choose the rosters from the pool of players voted as starters and reserves. Cleveland’s LeBron James and Golden State’s Stephen Curry will serve as team captains after finishing as the All-Star starter from each conference who received the most fan votes in his conference.
